Terminator 2 in 3D Could Still Happen

When James Cameron worked to bring “Titanic” back to theaters for a special 3D re-release, there were early rumblings that he was also interested in giving the same treatment to “Terminator 2.”  The “Titanic 3D” release has come and gone, but there hasn’t been much word about the plans for “Terminator.”

Earlier today James Cameron was present for a special screening of “Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” as part of the Los Angeles Times’ Hero Complex Film Festival.  Between the showing of the two films, James Cameron took to the stage to talk about the films creation with LA Times film writer Rebecca Keegan and to answer questions from the audience.  During the Q&A someone in the audience asked Cameron about the status of the “Terminator 2 3D” re-release.

Since both Terminator films were being showcased, Cameron briefly mentioned that the original “Terminator” would not be a film he would want to give the 3D treatment too as it would require substantial work to improve the effects.  As for “Terminator 2″, he feels that the special effects of that film have aged well and could blend with 3D technology.

Currently the re-release of “Terminator 2″ in 3D is still being considered.  It just seems like they’re trying to work out a marketing strategy.  James Cameron used China as an example of why they might bring it back, saying that China never got to see the film in theaters and now that the film market is so big in that country, it could serve as a strong motivator.

Essentially, the project is very much alive and Cameron has an interest in it still, it’s just a matter of time and opportunity.  And, with work on the “Avatar” sequels starting to intensify, who knows when he might get some free time to oversee it.  However, with a new Terminator film in the works and the 25th Anniversary of “Terminator 2″ coming in 2016, it’s very possible that we could hear more about this project in the coming year.

What do you think? Do you think “Terminator 2″ would benefit from a 3D treatment? Would you see it? Let us know! If you’re interested in checking out the Hero Complex Film Festival for yourself, be sure to visit their site.
