The "Terminator" franchise is coming back sooner than anticipated, but in an unexpected format.
Hannover House and Red Bear Entertainment are teaming to develop "Terminator 3000", a $70 million 3D animated feature based on the characters and storyline of the franchise according to a press release.
The project will tone down the violence as it plans to target a PG-13 rating. Story details however are being kept top secret.
Pacificor, LLC scored the rights to the franchise in January and holds licensing authority over the proposed project. Both companies will release further details later this year in the leadup to the production kicking off in January.
