Despite the Terminator
franchise now being comprised of six movies, only the first two are spoken of highly, with each movie chasing that same high ever since. One such attempt was 2015's Terminator Genisys
, which, while hinting at things to come, ended after one movie. Well, Patrick Lussier
, who co-wrote Terminator: Genisys
alongside Laeta Kalogridis
, has been discussing the movie, and what would have happened had Genisys been a success.
"We wrote like two drafts of the next one, the direct sequel, and had an outline for the third one, what that would be, that answered all the questions that were presented in Genisys and brought it back around and closed it all off."
While Terminator: Genisys
relied heavily on the previous installments (often to its detriment), Lussier added that the sequels would have gone a long way toward separating themselves from the rest of the franchise and branching off in their own direction.
