Poor Performance of "Dark Fate" May Have brought the Franchise to an End

Terminator: Dark Fate came and went and didnít make much of a splash critically or at the box office. Producer James Cameron had major plans for a continuation of the franchise. Dark Fate was set up as a standalone or the first film in a new trilogy. Cameron wanted to explore the human relationship with artificial intelligence and admits that doesnít happen in Dark Fate. But production on the film was recently revealed as being troubled. Director Tim Miller and Cameron had huge creative differences even though he never showed up on set. Miller talked to THRís Kim Masters and said he had ďno plansĒ to work with James Cameron again and that desire is due to a wish to retain control of his own films. Of the failure of Dark Fate, Miller explained: ďIím sure we could write a book on why it didnít work. Iím still not sure and Iím processing, but Iím very proud of the movie. The things critics seemed to hate the most about the movie were things I canít control. I canít control you didnít like Genysis or you felt betrayed by Terminator 4. I canít help that.Ē He confirmed there were creative battles on the film between him, Cameron and Skydanceís David Ellison: ďEven though Jim is a producer and David Ellison is a producer and they technically have final cut and ultimate power, my name is still on it as director. Even if Iím going to lose the fight Ö I still feel this obligation to fight because that is what the director is supposed to do. Fight for the movie.Ē Cameron and Miller had different opinions about Legion, the main villain. Cameron wanted the humans to be winning the war against Legion, while Miller wanted them to be losing: ďI suggested Legion is so powerful, the only way to beat it is going back in time and strangle it in the crib. Jim says, ĎWhatís dramatic about the humans losing?í And I say, ĎWell, Whatís dramatic about the humans winning and they just need to keep on winning?í I like a last stand. Itís not his thing.Ē Cameron hated Millerís rough cut and wasnít shy about it.
