David Ellison is said to be funding an "exploratory effort" that will bring a number of sci-fi writers in to help craft the movie. David Ellison also teased a few weeks ago that there will be a big announcement regarding this franchise coming soon, so it's possible that they may have found a new studio home for the Terminator franchise already.
