In a recent interview, Gale Anne Hurd the writer of Terminator, dished on the possibility of a reboot of the original 1984 movie, with different ownership rights than that of Terminator: Genesis.
Speaking at SDCC 2014, Hurd stated that she didn't know anything about the upcoming instalment of the Terminator and was completely out of loop. When aked if she got ownership again, would she be keen on working on a reboot of the original, she said she would be completely on board.
"It kinda depends on how the current iterations proceed, we would, I would love to do a reboot," she said. "Jim [James Cameron] and I had talked about it but once again the rights were sold and you know, we weren't invited to the party."
Hurd also spoke about working on the first movie with Cameron and working with a modest budget.
"When Jim and I talked about making this film we realized that it would be taken away from us if the budget was too high, so we engineered it so that even though it was a futuristic idea, even though it was science fiction, the technology came from the future," she said. "So the rest of the settings and locations and the costumes were all contemporary Los Angeles; we made the film for 5.6 million dollars."
Terminator: Genesis is being directed by Alan Taylor and Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to reprise his role as the iconic mean machine. Jai Courtney will be playing Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke will be portraying the part of John Connor, and Emilia Clarke will play Sarah Connor. Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) will be playing Detective Cheung, who will arrest Kyle and Sarah when they arrive in 2017.
