‘Terminator 2’ Removed from Paramount’s Schedule

“Terminator 2,” the sequel to “Terminator: Genisys,” has been removed from Paramount’s schedule. According to Deadline, the film was originally slated for a May 19, 2017 release, but has since been replaced by “Baywatch.”

The franchise reboot, “Terminator Genisys,” was intended as the first film in a trilogy (with sequels following in 2017 and 2018), which would also incorporate a tie-in television series. However, the $150 million-plus “Genisys” grossed just $90 million in North America, which seemed to spell doom for the sci-fi series. A report indicated that even the $440 million worldwide haul wasn’t enough for the film to make money.

“Terminator 2’s” removal from the schedule follows a recent report that ambitious plans for the “Terminator” franchise are “on hold indefinitely,” though one of the film’s producers later insisted they’re still moving forward, just at a slower pace.
