    I haven't heard anything else on this. Personally, I think they should forget about it. I mean, where else can they go with it?
    ------------------
    He thought on homeland, the big timber, the air thin and chill all the year long. Tulip poplars so big through the trunk they put you in mind of locomotives set on end. He thought of getting home and building him a cabin on Cold Mountain so high that not a soul but the nighthawks passing across the clouds in autumn could hear his sad cry. Of living a life so quiet he would not need ears. And if Ada would go with him, there might be the hope, so far off in the distance he did not even really see it, that in time his despair might be honed off to a point so fine and thin that it would be nearly the same as vanishing.

    Terminator 3 is supposed to come out in the summer of 2002. At first, Wesley Snipes was going to be the next Terminator, but Arnold signed on again (thank the maker). Cameron will be directing and Edward Furlong will be in it as well. That's all I know.

    What a joke! 'T3', give me a break! Man I REALLY hope this ridiculous project never happens!
    I love the first two films BTW.

    It looks like Vin Diesel will be a "machine" in this film. I for one cannot wait if this is true. Check it out at www.upcomingmovies.com .

    I'm pretty sure Mostow is re-working the script himself.
    Rumor, a month or so ago, was that Edward Furlong had bowed out of the project, so maybe that's what the delay/rewrite is for. Either way, I doubt this will make it for next summer. 2003 is more likely.
    As an aside, I think the "glory days" of terrorist movies are over. Action fans are going to have to rely on Science Fiction and Fantasy movies for our action. In other words, I think movies like T3 are going to be in vogue for a while, Cameron or not. Bruce Willis just turned down Die Hard 4. I wonder what this does regarding Cameron and True Lies II?
    Regards,
    Dan

    I think that they should set T3 solely in the alternate future and depict the war between the humans and machine, culmulating with the destruction of SkyNet and the sending back of the Terminators and protectors for the previous two movies. A "futuristic" prequel, of sorts.
    But another movie set in the present, though, would probably be a complete waste of time and an unworthy follow-up to two of the best Sci-Fi/Action movies around.

    I don't even know if Ed Furlong can even play a part in any movie anymore...he's been in and out of rehab and jail...I think just a couple days he was on the news...I can't remember exactly what it was for, but his first offence of the DAY involved driving without a driver's licence

    Sean, their are a few reasons why feel this film will just not work.
    1. Arnold himself. He is too old and dare I say it, too thin now to play the Terminator, they wouldn't dare replace him.
    2. No Jim. I must seriously question a Terminator film directed by someone else for the simple reason that if a talented, gifted, and intelligent filmmaker like James Cameron didn't want to direct a movie based on a story that he himself created and nurtured, then I have to conclude that their must be something very wrong with this whole project, and besides, he has said that he officialy wrapped up the story at the end of 'T2' and feels that their is nowhere else to go with it.
    3. No inspiration. 'T2' was an inspired sequel, the story had a lot of areas that could still be explored, and a sequel felt very necessary.
    4. No villian. IMHO thier is NO WAY their going to be able to top Robert Patrick as the T-1000, never!
    5. No Linda. A terminator film WITHOUT Sarah Conner, PAHLEEEZ!
    6. I heard somewhere that this film will be based at least partly in the future and we'll get to see things that were talked about in 1 and 2. Not necessary. This completly underminds the audiences intelligence, it's like the scene at the end of 'Psycho' when the shrink spills all the beans on why Norman was screwed up, destroys the integrity of everything that went before it.
    This is the most clear-cut case of Hollywood doing a needless sequel just to make a quick buck, as i've ever seen! However, i'd be lying if I said that i'm not going to see it at least once out of sheer curiosity, but I fear the worst, I hope in this case i'm wrong.

    Starting this thread back up, because the tidbit of news that I read today had to be shared.
    This came from "Cinema Confidential"

    What other piece of future technology was forgotten that would make it possible for the machines to exist? Will there still be a war then?
