Terminator Reboot – New Terminator Trilogy Announced


It’s been some time now since the first announcement was made about a new Terminator film in development. Since then, we’ve been furnished with precious little information about the project, aside from the names of the producers (siblings David and Megan Ellison), and that of a director (Justin Lin) who was initially attached, but apparently isn’t any more. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger’s continued involvement with the franchise is currently up in the air: while Deadline claims that he will be returning [insert joke here], according to E, this hasn’t been officially confirmed by the studios.

Terminator-Reboot-Gets-Release-DateYesterday, however, saw a new press release in which Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures jointly announced their backing for a rebooted “TERMINATOR” film, set to be the first part of a new standalone trilogy. The script will be written by Laeta Kalorgridis (“Avatar” and “Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (“Drive Angry”), with Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance acting as executive producers.

The release date currently scheduled for the first film is 26 June 2015, leaving the studios with just four years to complete the remaining two films before rights to the franchise are restored to James Cameron. It’s possible, then, that the three films proposed might end up being two.

Terminator-Salvation-001The fact that the film is a reboot is likely to be a source of irritation to many fans of the original films. On the other hand, this may in some ways provide its creators with more freedom than another sequel could have done. Admittedly, if this is to be a reboot, it’s difficult to see why the studios would choose to cast the same actor in the title role, however tightly bound the franchise is to his persona. Of course, it’s always possible that he could make an appearance as a completely different character.

What are your feelings about the reboot? Should Arnie make a comeback or is there someone else you’d like to see take over?

    Give the rights back to Cameron now and let him decide whether more Terminator movies should be made instead of making something that would most likely be a bigger disaster than the last 2 films in the series.

  2. Max says:

    If this is to go ahead, I loved the first two and I find it hard to believe the new ones will be better. Saying that I think using Arnie is a must, just use him as the creator of the terminator he played.
