Netflix has ordered an anime series based on the Terminator franchise.
The project is being developed in a partnership with Skydance Media and Production I.G, with The Batman co-writer Mattson Tomlin serving as showrunner and executive producer.
"Anyone who knows my writing knows I believe in taking big swings and going for the heart," Tomlin said. "I'm honored that Netflix and Skydance have given me the opportunity to approach Terminator in a way that breaks conventions, subverts expectations and has real guts."
"Terminator is one of the most iconic sci-fi stories ever created–and has only grown more relevant to our world over time," Netflix Vice President of Japan and Anime added. "The new animated series will explore this universe in a way that has never been done before. We can’t wait for fans to experience this amazing new chapter in the epic battle between machines and humans."
The Terminator is just the latest major franchise to get an anime adaptation for Netflix. Other properties getting similar treatment include Pacific Rim: The Black, Godzilla Singular Point, DOTA: Dragon's Blood, Resident Evil: Infinite Darkness and more.
