‘Terminator’: Netflix & Production I.G Developing Anime Series With ‘The Batman’s Mattson Tomlin Set As Showrunner

The Terminator franchise isn’t dead according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Japanese animation studio Production I.G, Skydance, and Netflix are teaming up for a new anime series set within the Terminator universe with Mattson Tomlin set as writer and showrunner. Tomlin worked with Netflix on the superhero film Project Power and co-wrote The Batman with director Matt Reeves.

James Cameron’s Terminator franchise has had a rocky-road with varying degrees of success with sequels. The last entry directed by Tim Miller, Terminator: Dark Fate, was supposed to kick-off a brand new trilogy that producer Cameron was excited to explore but had a bit of trouble at the box office.

The new anime project could breath new life into the franchise when repeated attempts at reviving the films (three times) has been exactly what filmmakers had hoped.
