“We’re trying to figure out the best way to make a movie that will live up to the hype and the passion of the fans,” Abrams said.
“And then I’ll take it out and put it up on the big screen.”
“The Terminator” franchise has gone on to sell more than 7 million movies and spin offs since 1982.
And it’s not just the franchise that Abrams is interested in revisiting.
“It’s a story that we’re trying not to repeat,” he added.
“I’d love to make it a different kind of story.”
Abrams said that he wants to make the film a more grounded story about an army of people who have lost their lives, rather than one that focuses on the Terminator’s first appearance and his rise to the top of the army.
“If it’s going to be a more family oriented story, I want to do a story about a family of soldiers that have been through the same things that we’ve been through,” he said.
In other words, the Terminator isn’t going to get to the end of his life.
“The thing that I love about the movie is the people that we have on the battlefield, the soldiers that we get to see in action, that have survived that war, that are in the midst of something that’s a pretty significant change in our world,” he continued.
“That’s something I think we can really build on.
I want people to see it, and I want them to go through it and know what’s going on.”
“Star Wars” actor Adam Driver, who plays Kyle Reese in “The Clone Wars,” is the first to agree.
“Kyle Reese is a warrior,” Driver said.
He added that he believes the film will be an “exciting” one.
“My main thing is that I’m going to see him in the movie,” Driver added.
Driver and Abrams have also shared their thoughts on the future of the franchise.
Abrams said he doesn’t want to see the franchise go into the future and he’s not concerned about the future.
“This franchise has to continue,” Abrams told CBS.
“You can’t just stop it.
You can’t let it go and let it die.
You have to make sure it’s an incredible franchise that stays alive.”
Abrams also said that it would be interesting to see how “Terminator” is received on social media.
“What are people going to think of this?
I mean, I have no idea.
I think it’s a wonderful franchise,” he told CBS News.
“But it’s also something that you can’t really tell with a social media audience.”
