After Joss Whedon put out his letter about why the TERMINATOR franchise should be sold to him, fans' imaginations went wild. Not to mention the excitement about the people who brought you TERMINATOR: SALVATION losing their rights. That was about the last time we spoke about who was in the running for the rights. Now we know who will most likely win.

Lionsgate is in the top spot for acquiring the TERMINATOR franchise. Their current bid is $15 million and 5% gross from future TERMINATOR films and apparently, a bid must be at least $500,000 more for it to count. Bids are due on February 5th at 5:40 PM.

Lionsgate could be a good home for the TERMINATOR franchise, it could be the perfect opportunity to take the series back to its roots. Until then, I'm going to stay skeptical because a good TERMINATOR movie hasn't been made in almost 20 years. What do you guys think, is Lionsgate a good home for the TERMINATOR franchise?
