Somebody Really Wants To Make A Terminator Cartoon

August 18, 2010

A press release went out about a Terminator 3000 cartoon movie. But the truth behind it is boring, not neat or fun. Here's the press release.

So, they announced no writers or directors or any other creative anything, except that they had distribution rights for the original movie.

Also, they said the cartoon would tone down the violence. That's right. We all dislike Terminator because there is too much violence.

Then they got a cease and desist letter.

The guy behind the original press release said he's meeting with the rights holders, and if that doesn't work out, the cartoon won't happen.

So that press release was just a ploy to get a meeting, not an announcement of something neat that might really happen.

In a better world, lawyers and copyright holders and people who own rights to things would make their deals on poker tables in back rooms and we would never hear about them.

Instead, those people bombard the general nerd public with news about things that do not exist and probably will not exist.

Everywhere on the net linked to this Terminator news, now including us. Because a guy wanted to have a meeting.

When I hang out with with my nerds, I don't want to talk about copyright issues and legal deals. But that's what I'm doing right now. Aaiiigh! You win again, dingleberries!
