Terminator: Genisys will be first of reboot trilogy and then rights revert to James Cameron

Paramount Pictures is amping up its rebooted “Terminator” franchise, dating two sequels to “Terminator: Genisys,” [aka Terminator 5] which opens July 1.

The studio has dated “Terminator 2″ for May 19, 2017, and “Terminator 3″ on June 29, 2018.

A spokeswoman for Annapurna said in 2012 that under new copyright rules, North American rights to The Terminator franchise could revert back to creator James Cameron in 2019 — 35 years after the original “Terminator” was released.

James Cameron is getting writing credits for the trilogy of terminator reboots. However, it is not clear if he was only involved in some writing brainstorming sessions.

James Cameron will be making billions from Avatar sequels.
