Less than a year after the release of the last Terminator movie, and less than two years after the franchise's current owners bought up the rights, ownership of one of the most popular sci-fi franchises in history is up for grabs once again.
The LA Times has the story:
Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek, who acquired the science-fiction franchise in 2007 for $25 million and produced this year's sequel "Terminator Salvation," are now looking to sell them partially or outright as several companies owned by the duo work their way through bankruptcy.
Anderson and Kubicek's Halcyon Holding Group has engaged financial advisory firm FTI Capital Advisors, pending bankruptcy court approval, to "evaluate strategic alternatives," according to a statement. Since Halcyon's only valuable asset is the Terminator rights, any deal would involve an investment in, or outright sale, of them.
I guess this means we won't see the 'new trilogy' the was supposedly kicked off with Terminator: Salvation for a few years, and considering Salvation's lackluster performance at the box-office, possibly not at all.
