Patrick Lussier Talks Terminator: Genisys Sequels

Alan Taylor’s Terminator: Genisys was a dud with audiences and critics when it was released back in 2015, though it tried valiantly to take the series in a different direction. In a recent interview on The Production Meeting Podcast, co-writer Patrick Lussier revealed where he planned on taking the sequels.

“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,” he explained.

He also argued that Genisys was introducing new characters who would have gone in a completely different direction in the follow up films.

“They dealt more with how the future and where Skynet comes from and what that sort of time loop is. You know, the Matt Smith character. It became much more of a focus, so they were probably a little trippier and stood away from ‘T2’ a little more. Started having their own identity. There’s sort of an interesting escaping the fatalistic part of it, how it opened was very cool… who knows? Maybe one day they’ll release it as a comic or something.”

Directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) Terminator: Genisys brought back Arnold Schwarzenegger as an older Terminator, joined by Jason Clarke as John Connor, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, Byung Hun Lee and Matt Smith. The film grossed $440 million worldwide, making the second highest grossing entry in the franchise before inflation, against a $160 million budget. Only 27% of critics awarded the film a positive score.
