T3 beginning of more to come By Brandon Gray XapSit.nn HOLLYWOOD Same make, same model, new studio. Already home to such mega-franchises as "Harry Potter." "Batman" and "The Matrix," Warner Bros, has added another to its stable. The studio won the fierce bidding war for the domestic distribution and video rights to "Terminator 3: The Rise of the Machines," production companies Intermedia and C-2 Pictures, the WB announced Monday. What's more, the companies revealed that this is only a new beginning for the "Terminator" series, that they, hope to make more sequels in the future. Principal photography on the third installment of the sci-fi action epic will commence in April with the highest green-lighted budget ever, reportedly between $165 million and 180 million. Arnold Schwarzeneg-' ger is commanding an unprecedented $30 million of that for his reprisal of the T-800 series of killing machines.

Warners pulled out all of the stops and committed the full support and extensive resources we wanted from the entire AOL Time Warner organization." " 'The Terminator' and "Terminator II: Judgment Day' were revolutionary motion pictures, both artistically and commercially," gushed Warner Bros. President and Chief Operating Officer Alan Horn and President of Worldwide Production Lorenzo di Bonaventura. "and we couldn't be happier to be involved with the highly anticipated third installment of this innovative franchise." Earlier reports had DreamWorks and Paramount among the front-runners to take home "T3." duking it out through the weekend, while Warner Bros, joined the auction late last week. Deals for international distribution are expected to be reached by the end of the year. Intermedia, on entertainment investment company based in Los Angeles. London and Munich, previously produced such pictures as "K-PAX." "The Wedding Planner." "Nurse Betty" and "Sliding Doors." Its upcoming releases include "K-19: The Widowmaker." "The Quiet American." "Adaptation" and "National Security." C-2 Pictures was formed by Karrar and Vajna out of the ashes of Carolco Pictures. With that company, the two produced the "Rambo" movies, "Total Recall." "Basic Instinct" and, of course, "Terminator 2: Judgment Day." Costing $100 million, 1991's "T2" was one of the most expensive pictures of its day. It went on to gross over $520 million worldwide. By comparison, the first "Terminator" from 1984 was made for less than $7 million, and became a sleeper hit, collecting most of its fan base Come See Our Huge Selection of Lift Chairs Homecare Medical Mart .

Edward Furlong, who played Connor in "T2," is not expected to return. Intermedia had been asking for 50 million against 50 percent of gross receipts for the domestic theatrical, TV, VHS and DVD rights. Four studios agreed to that asking price. What made Warner Bros, stand out was the corporate synergy it can use to support "T3" as part of the AOL Time Warner family, synergy that worked so well with "Harry Potter." Additionally, the studio, which is the 2001 market share leader, has the clout with exhibitors to secure and hold onto a maximum amount of theaters for "T3."
