Lowdown: As I've said before, I am all for screenwriters Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis taking a crack at a big giant science-fiction film for Paramount to co-produce with the Ellisons. But the insistence on casting Arnold and the race to get a trilogy cranked out before the rights revert to James Cameron in 2019 makes all of this sound like Product, not a story that someone felt compelled to tell. This one worries me, but all eyes will be on the end result.
