Have a couple of million dollars lying around? Then why not buy the Terminator franchise. Yes, according to The Los Angeles Times the rights to the Terminator franchise is again up for sale.

Columbia Pictures has bought the rights for the spec script Supermax. The film’s plot according to The Hollywood Reporter is:

The spec is an action horror tale set in a maximum-security prison for the supernatural. The story centers on a skilled prison guard who is re-assigned to Supermax. After a riot erupts, he must join forces with one of the prison’s monstrous inmates in order to survive and fight his way out.

This film has nothing to do with the Green Arrow film that Warner Bros. has been developing for a few years now that was at one time called Supermax and  has Green Arrow thrown in a maximum security prison for supervillians and then joins forces with the supervillans to escape. Nope nothing at all.
