Paramount Sets June 2015 Release Date For TERMINATOR Reboot Which Will Be First In A New Trilogy
Some new information about the next Terminator film has been revealed by Deadline. As Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures will partner on the film which will be released on June 26th 2015. Coming out the same year as Avengers 2, Star Wars Episode VII, Ant-Man, Jurassic Park 4, Fantastic Four and Pirates 5. The film would be the first installment in a rebooted trilogy.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is currently the only person attached to the film besides newly announced writers Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island, Ghost In The Shell, Battle Angel Alita) and Patrick Lussier (Scream 1-3, Apollo 18, Red Eye). Laeta has worked with James Cameron which is sign the project might end up getting the blessings and support of Jim. A director hasn't been named but it was revealed that Nicolas Winding Refn (Bronson, Only God Forgives, Drive) took a meeting. Script writer Patrick Lussier also dabbles as a director. Helming action/horror flicks My Bloody Valentine, Halloween III and Drive Angry, which could make him a candidate. There were also rumblings that Dwayne Johnson was wanted to play the new Terminator. While it's interesting to see them try to push a giant three part story a similar thing happened with Terminator Salvation and it ended up being underwhelming.
