'Avatar' director James Cameron has admitted that it would be fun to "completely re-invent" the 'Terminator' franchise

James Cameron says it could be fun to "completely re-invent" 'Terminator'.

The famed film director - who was responsible for the original 1984 film 'The Terminator' starring Arnold Schwarzenegger - has hinted that he might revisit the franchise once 'Terminator: Genisys' is completed.

Talking to Empire magazine, James said: "I haven't really thought that far ahead yet. I've got plenty of time to think about it. It might be fun to completely re-invent the franchise. A lot has to do with what happens in the meantime, people may have 'Terminator' fatigue."

Regarding the new 'Terminator' movie, which is due out in 2015, James added that he isn't concerned with how this film could affect his 'Terminator' legacy.

He said: "It's not my problem! It's like being a grandparent, the kids come over and you can send them back. When I walked away from the franchise, I had to do it with the sense that I can invest in emotion. To me, it's all upside, because if it's good, it's good for Arnold."

He then added that he has every faith in the new film's writer Laeta Kalogridis.

James told the magazine: "I hoping it's great. I'd like them to get it right, and based on the script that I read there's a pretty good chance that it could. It looks like it could be fun."

More time-travel hi-jinks as the Resistance battles Skynet and timelines collide all over the shop. Solidly workmanlike action sequences meet bewilderingly confusing writing and the characters are soon as lost as the audience, in what feels more like a parody of the franchise than the dawn of a new era.
