The Halcyon Company is an American privately financed, media development company headed by Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek. They are perhaps best known for acquiring in 2007 the development rights to the Terminator franchise.
The company was co-founded by Derek Anderson and Victor Kubicek.
In May 2007, Halcyon acquired all of the rights in relationship to the Terminator franchise. These rights include the right to produce any future Terminator films, as well as all future merchandising and licensing rights, certain future revenues derived from Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, as well as certain rights in the television project Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and the sole right to produce all future Terminator projects in any new or existing media.
Warner Bros. acquired the North American distribution rights, allowing them to distribute the fourth Terminator film, Terminator Salvation. The film began production in early 2008.
In November 2007, the company reported that it was creating its own video games subsidiary, Halcyon Games and will be making a video game adaptation of the upcoming film.
After much financial trouble the company has decided to auction off the rights to the entire Terminator franchise in January 2010.
