“The Terminator 2”: James Cameron admits he was “ecstatic” when he wrote the screenplay

Published

When “The Terminator” came out, director and screenwriter James Cameron knew that the sequel to his first big hit had to be something no one had seen before.

To overcome the impact of the original, he introduced the killer android T-1000 (Robert Patrick) and decided to explore the childhood of John Connor (Edward Furlong) in the midst of a looming nuclear war.

It was the revenue that earned the film its status as one of the greatest action and sci-fi films of the 20th century, as well as a box office of $ 520 million worldwide on a budget of $ 95 million.

But where do all these fancy ideas come from?

During an interview with The Ringer, Cameron commented on the main elements of the film and confessed that he was under the influence of hard drugs when he designed the first drafts.

It all started when he was listening to a song by the singer and decided to increase his perception by using ecstasy pills.

“I remember sitting down to write the script for ‘The Terminator 2’ while listening to ‘Russians’ on ecstasy, I was impressed with this song, especially in the part where he sings:’ Hope the Russians love your kids too. ‘I thought,’ You know what? The idea of ​​nuclear war is so antithetical to life itself. That’s where the boy came from. [John Connor]. “

Unfortunately, the franchise ended up deteriorating over time, and neither of the sequels managed to reach the potential of the first two films after Cameron abandoned the project.

In 2019, the filmmaker decides to relaunch his saga and returns to the producer chair in ‘The Terminator: Dark Fate’.

For those who haven’t, the film ignores the events of “Terminator 3” and all the other sequels that followed, restarting the timeline after “The Final Judgment.”

However, despite mixed reviews and a 70% approval on Rotten Tomatoes, the sequel was massacred by audiences.

With a budget of around $ 185 million, the film is a commercial failure, racking up just $ 261.1 million worldwide.

In addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton and Edward Furlong reprized their roles as Sarah and John Connor.

The cast also includes Mackenzie Davis, Natalia Reyes, Gabriel Luna, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Diego Boneta.
