LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Pacificor LLC today named Latham & Watkins LLP to field all inquiries related to the rights to the iconic Terminator franchise.
Since last Wednesday, when Los Angeles Bankruptcy Judge Ernest M. Robles approved the sale of the rights to Pacificor, the Santa Barbara hedge fund has been contacted by numerous studios, producers, financiers and agents interested in the rights to the continuing series.
To create a more orderly process as interest grows, Pacificor today designated Latham partners Wayne S. Flick and Russell F. Sauer, Jr. in Los Angeles as the points of contact for all Terminator-related business inquiries. While Pacificor is not in the theatrical feature production business, it does have access to considerable industry expertise and will consult with those experts over the next few weeks regarding all serious proposals.
Said Pacificor CEO Andrew B. Mitchell: “Pacificor is proud to own one of the most enduring and valuable global franchises in motion picture history. Since James Cameron first introduced us to his vision in 1984, the Terminator series has generated approximately $3 billion in box office and ancillary revenues. The franchise is known around the world, in all important territories, and the DVD of Terminator Salvation is currently in circulation. The Terminator is one of the most recognizable characters and story lines in all of show business, reinforced daily in share of mind with video games, television shows and toys.
