The governor of California is not likely to star in it, but a fourth Terminator movie appears to be a lock following the sale of franchise rights to the popular series. Daily Variety reported today (Thursday) that Halcyon, a privately funded company hatched recently by entrepreneurs Victor Kubicek and Derek Anderson, had purchased the rights for an undisclosed sum from Andy Vajna and Mario Kassar and were preparing to begin production of Terminator 4, written by John Brancato and Michael Ferris, who also wrote Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. In reporting the deal, Variety commented that the new producers see the fourth Terminator "as an attempt to reinvent the franchise with new cast and plot lines, ploys that worked for Batman and James Bond, and is being attempted with The Incredible Hulk."
