iPad has a mini. We have Mini Coopers. Miniature horses. Why can’t we have Tom Cruise as a Mini Terminator? It would be adorable! He could hide in John Conner’s pocket or maybe pose as a child to get to him. It could totally happen.

Megan Ellison (financier ofZero Dark Thirty, Lawless, The Master) owns the rights to The Terminator franchise. Now, guess who her brother is. No, that doesn’t even make sense! Her brother is David Ellison, Super Happy Funtime Pal of Tom Cruise. Male Ellison has backed the Cruise endeavor Jack Reacher and some of the Mission: Impossible movies. He’s also one of the guys that can get movies made in Hollywood just by being involved. You cram all of this information together and you can pop out the rumor/idea that Cruise could be involved in a future Terminator project.


The Ellison siblings have scrapped previously attached Justin Lin (Fast Five) from the project. Apparently Lin’s version had Arnie Schwarzenegger returning, probably for real instead of creepily CGI-ing his head onto a stunt double’s torso. *cough*Terminator Salvation*cough* So, if we are blessed with a new Terminator, where the hell do they go with it?
