Remember when James Cameron said that Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins was likely a big heaping pile of dog sh*t? Well, he didn't actually say that. Just another case of something being taken out of context, James Cameron has responded to the negative impression he supposedly left on the project and confirms that he has yet to see, hear or read a single thing from it.

Checking in with AICN, Cameron had this to say.

Cameron Gives Terminator Salvation

There's been some kind of misunderstanding between me and McG, perfectly innocent I believe. He asked me in a phone call when I was shooting in New Zealand earlier this year if I would be a supporter and creative participant in the new film. I said sure, send me the script and I'll give you my thoughts. And I warned him that free advice is usually worth what you pay for it. For whatever reason I never got the script and to date I haven't seen a foot of film other than what everybody's seen in the trailer, which is not enough to form an opinion. So I have zero basis for supporting or dissing the film. As I said in an interview, for all I know it could be a masterpiece or it could be a big steaming pile. I think all people heard was the steaming pile part and concluded I was against the film, which I'm not.

He does mention that Sam Worthington thinks Terminator Salvation is good, which goes a long way with Cameron:

In fact, it might be very good, an opinion based solely on what Sam Worthington has shared with me. He's nobody's fool when it comes to material, and has absolutely the lowest bullshit quotient of anyone I know, and he has repeatedly told me that he reckons the film is going to be good. I know him to be very critical (in a healthy way) of his own work, and an actor who always aspires to excellence, so I know he wouldn't praise the film if he didn't feel it.

In conclusion, Cameron says that he can't give any blessing or judgment on a film he hasn't seen, which sounds just about right.

Terminator Salvation: The Future Begins opens to theaters on May 22nd, 2009.
