‘Don’t Breathe’ Director Fede Álvarez Producing Next ‘Texas Chainsaw’ Film
Leatherface is coming back to cinemas again. Again.

Adding to eight already-existing films in “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” franchise will be a new film from Legendary Entertainment and producer Fede Álvarez. The Uruguayan director last brought the sleeper hit chamber thriller “Don’t Breathe” to the big screen in 2016. In 2013, Álvarez rebooted “Evil Dead,” based on Sam Raimi’s franchise.

According to Bloody Disgusting, Álvarez will produce the latest version of the Tobe Hooper horror movie universe, with no director or writer attached yet. It seems that Legendary is also looking to take a page from David Gordon Green’s 2018 “Halloween” restart, and Tim Miller’s upcoming “Terminator: Dark Fate.” While the former film was a direct sequel to John Carpenter’s original, Miller’s “Terminator” take is a direct sequel to James Cameron’s “Judgment Day.”

Terminator: Dark Fate Director Says The Last Three Movies Tainted The Franchise

The cyclical nature of blockbuster filmmaking means every valuable property is going to get rebooted at some point or other, but they seem to be trying especially hard when it comes to the Terminator franchise. The upcoming sixth installment, Terminator: Dark Fate, will be the third hybrid of reboot and sequel to hit theaters in ten years, but everyone involved is talking this one up as the one that will serve as the spiritual successor to James Cameron’s groundbreaking and hugely-influential work on the series.

Of course, we’ve heard all of this before. While Rise of the Machines was more of a straightforward sequel to Terminator and Terminator 2, both Salvation and Genisys were heavily-hyped as having the potential to create new storytelling opportunities, new possibilities and ultimately new franchises, yet failed to deliver. The potential was definitely there in the concepts of each to deliver worthy follow-ups to Cameron’s iconic sci-fi blockbusters,

Terminator: Dark Fate director says the franchise has been “tainted”

Tim Miller, the director of Terminator: Dark Fate, says that the franchise has been “tainted” in recent years.

It’s fair to say that the reputation of the Terminator franchise has gone down with recent entries into the franchise. Terminator 2: Judgment Day was certainly the pinnacle of the series and that seems like an awfully long time ago now.

The franchise is having another crack at things with Tim Miller’s Terminator: Dark Fate but the director admits that the brand has been tainted. Speaking to TotalFilm, he said:

“I think the brand has been tainted a little bit. I don’t want to disparage the work of any of those movies, and some of them were interesting, but I feel like they just played in the world of The Terminator – it was essentially a different thing. T2 was just one of those events that was a fucking revelation.

Terminator: Dark Fate Director Feels the Brand Has Become Tainted
Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller says that the franchise has been "tainted" by the previous sequels in the series, acknowledging the pressure and high expectations he's been given by taking on the project. Miller opened up about what it was like coming on board the anticipated sequel, admitting even he would have some reservations about seeing a sixth movie if he weren't directly involved. Describing the other sequels past Terminator 2: Judgment Day as "misfires," Miller suggests the other movies had drifted too far away from what made T2 as special as it was.

"I think the brand has been tainted a little bit. I don't want to disparage the work of any of those movies, and some of them were interesting, but I feel like they just played in the world of The Terminator - it was essentially a different thing. T2 was just one of those events that was a fucking revelation.

Arnold Schwarzenegger on Terminator: Dark Fate - “I Haven’t Seen Action and Emotion Like This Since The Second Movie"

The cast and crew of Terminator: Dark Fate are really building up the hype for the upcoming film and trying to get the fans riled up with excitement. I think the trailers for the film have done a great job of doing that, but thanks to Total Film, we have quotes from the cast and crew that is sure to up that excitement and raise your expectations.

When talking about what James Cameron brought to the films climatic end, director Tim Miller said:

"We could easily make two movies out of this, the amount of story that we’re packing in. Jim [Cameron, who returns as producer on the movie] kind of invented the fourth act structure where you reach a point where you think the movie is over, and then it goes on further. [Dark Phoenix director] Simon Kinberg watched it the other day and he said, ‘Holy shit, when the C-5 sequence came up I thought that was the end of the movie!

New Terminator: Dark Fate Photos and Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton Discuss Returning To The Franchise

Like a lot of other Terminator fans, I have high hopes that James Cameron and Tim Miller’s Terminator: Dark Fate ends up being the awesome sequel that we’ve all been waiting for. I like what I’ve seen so far and today we have some additional insight on the film from Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton.

The fact that two actors will appear in a Terminator movie together after all these years is one of the most exciting aspects of the movie for me. The actors recent talked to Total Film about the movie and offered some additional insight on returning to play these roles.

As we’ve previously learned, it wasn’t easy to get Hamilton back in the role of Sarah Connor, but luckily she caved and jumped on board! In regards to that, she said:

Terminator: Dark Fate Director Explains Why He Didn’t De-Age Arnold Schwarzenegger

Digital technology has come an awful long way since Arnold Schwarzenegger’s CGI cameo in Terminator Salvation – hell, Martin Scorsese and the Powers That Be have even committed to an entire feature film based around digitally de-aged actors. Its name? The Irishman.

Circling back to the realm of science fiction, though, and we know Schwarzenegger is due to reprise his role as the world-famous T-800 in Dark Fate. No CG, no computer wizardry – just the 72-year-old Austrian Oak in all his glory. Turns out that was a conscious decision on the part of director Tim Miller, who outright refused to de-age Arnold Schwarzenegger in any way, shape, or form.

Chatting to Men’s Health, the filmmaker confirmed that Dark Fate “embraces reality” in that the likes of Schwarzenegger and co-star Linda Hamilton – the two genuine stalwarts of the Terminator franchise – will appear without any smoke or mirrors.

Terminator: Dark Fate Director Was Against Digitally De-Aging Schwarzenegger

Terminator: Dark Fate Director Was Against Digitally De-Aging Schwarzenegger
Director Tim Miller has stated that returning star Arnold Schwarzenegger will not be digitally de-aged for the upcoming sixth film in the franchise, Terminator: Dark Fate. In a conversation with Men's Health, Miller vocalized his passion for keeping Arnie, and thereby the T-800, old and grey.

"I didn't want to do a digital Arnold, that's for f--k sure. We're [embracing] the reality of what it means to be a person of a certain age who is called upon to be heroic. I love that. I always liked stories like Rooster Cogburn and True Grit, things like that - flawed heroes are so much more interesting than young, perfect ones to me."

Tim Miller's name dropping of True Grit's endearingly grumpy, world-weary hero Rooster Cogburn is perhaps a suggestion as to the direction of the T-800 when we make our acquaintance with him once again in Dark Fate. Clearly though the

Terminator: Dark Fate director didn’t want to digitally de-age Arnold Schwarzenegger

Terminator: Dark Fate director Tim Miller has explained why he didn’t want to de-age a returning Arnold Schwarzenegger for the upcoming sci-fi action sequel to Terminator 2: Judgement Day.

In a recent interview with Men’s Health, Miller discussed that he never wanted to do a digitally de-aged Arnold and preferred to embrace the reality of a person being a certain age.

“I didn’t want to do a digital Arnold, that’s for fucking sure,” Miller told the magazine. “We’re [embracing] the reality of what it means to be a person of a certain age who is called upon to be heroic.

Can shifting to a female-focused future overcome Terminator: Dark Fate's bad buzz?

After a string of sequels that have failed to hit the mark, James Cameron may be turning to strong women to rescue the franchise. Will it work?

The pages of Hollywood history are littered with failed attempts to propel movies towards box office and critical success. To pinpoint the basic construct of a film that is likely to appeal to audiences and critics alike is a virtually impossible task. Just ask the Disney executives who chose to remove the “of Mars” suffix from the big-budget 2012 adaptation of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ classic planetary romance novel John Carter of Mars, (ostensibly because previous movies mentioning the red planet had bombed), only to see a perfectly decent fantasy flick lose more than $200m at the box office. Or the executives who felt Ridley Scott’s 1982 sci-fi masterpiece, Blade Runner, was so confusing that it needed a tacked-on happy ending and Harrison Ford voiceover

They feature new and returning characters that include Linda Hamilton as Sarah Connor, Arnold Schwarzenegger is back as an older T-800 named Carl, and then there’s Mackenzie Davis who is on a mission to protect a young girl named Dani (Natalia Reyes) from being terminated by Gabriel Luna who is a new Terminator that can split into two deadly killing machines.

Then there’s Deadpool director Tim Miller who has been extremely passionate about this next chapter of the story, which is set after the events of Terminator 2, after Sarah thought she saved the world.

Terminator: Dark Fate Character Posters Warn You to Choose Your Fate

Despite fans’ (justifiable) reservations about a new ‘Terminator’ film, the upcoming sequel, ‘Dark Fate,’ has something that the previous films didn’t — Linda Hamilton. And now, with Sarah Connor back to fight robots and save the world, there’s hope that director Tim Miller and producer James Cameron have finally nailed what it takes to make a good “Terminator’ film post-‘T2.’ But even though it seemed like an obvious choice to bring back Hamilton to the franchise, the actress recently explained that it was hardly an easy decision.
