'Terminator' TV spin-off takes new direction Thursday, January 10 2008, 09:45 GMT By Ben Rawson-Jones, Cult Editor Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles will take a different direction from the movies, according to a consulting producer on the upcoming television spin-off. James Middleton told Sci Fi Wire: "The Sarah Connor Chronicles is really a new expression of the franchise, and it is a denouement, really, to Sarah Connor and that character that was introduced in the first two movies." "T3 is its own separate thing," he added. "The movie chronology in terms of the Terminator franchise will be different than the television show. The mythology has always posited that, through this aspect of time travel, events being changed in the past could change events in the present and in the future." The series, which stars 300's Lena Headey as Connor, will debut on the Fox network in America on January 13.
