Cameron will be directing
I had heard he absolutely refused. Originally Ridley Scott was said to be directing, now I've heard Jonathan Mostow wo did U-571 will be at the helm.

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?
I think I may have to agree with Dan here. It's unfortunate that Hollywood has to be filled with a bunch of uptight pansy squares that are afraid of offending someone!! I really wish people in the entertainment industry would just loosen up and stop being so damned close-minded about non-PC stuff. I love action films like Die Hard, Lethal Weapon, and True Lies (and I have no problem watching them in light of recent events -- despite being emotionally affected by them). If Hollywood really believes that people are so incredibly naive and ignorant as to not be able to tell the difference between reality and fiction, then we're all lost.

"Terminator 3" is set to be greenlit, but at what expense?
Michael Flemming at Variety reports that the "Terminator 3" project, which has been moving extremely slowly, is finally close to being greenlit but at a possible $160 million dollar production budget. This would beat "Pearl Harbor" which was greenlit by Disney for $135 million.
The film's production company, Intermedia Films, has the ability to fully finance the film but it is expected that the studio that chooses to distribute the film will share in the costs. The trade reports that Sony and Universal Pictures are the two studios currently interested in picking up the project.
I am in the camp that this movie should not be made (especially since Cameron and Hamilton aren't doing it).
What other piece of future technology was forgotten that would make it possible for the machines to exist?
Arnie's arm was crushed in the gears in T2 and ripped off. I'll have to agree and say that I don't relish the idea of a T3, especially without the Linda Hamilton as Sarah Conner, but who knows? Maybe we'll all be surprised.
