Just when you thought franchise-connectivity news was at an all-time high this week -- with 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' its 'Fantastic Four' tie-ins, and every other big-budget property under the sun -- in comes a new 'Terminator' TV series in development with Paramount, said to connect to the upcoming rebooted film series! Hooray for things!
Once director Alan Taylor finishes with all the 'Thor: The Dark World' promotional rounds, he'll reportedly have to deal with 'Terminator 5' next (though he's been a bit wary of officially stating he's on board). But who will be the new faces of this next installment, besides Arnold Schwarzenegger, of course? A new report has emerged pointing fingers at some of the hottest names of the moment, including some from 'Game of Thrones,' '21 Jump Street' and 'The Wolf of Wall Street.'
Just when you thought that the Summer of 2015 couldn't be more overstuffed with blockbusters, they had to go and officially announce 'Terminator 5' with 'Thor: The Dark World' and 'Game of Thrones' director Alan Taylor at the helm. Now, the fifth entry in the iconic time traveling, post-apocalyptic humans vs. robots franchise has a new release date: July 1, 2015.
Earlier this week, we got word that 'Terminator 5' would set up shop at Paramount Pictures, a new home for the franchise after two lackluster films with Warner Bros. But what did that actually mean for the movie? Sure, it had a new home, but does that actually get us closer to seeing 'Terminator 5' in theaters? It turns out it does. Arnold Schwarzenegger spoke out today, confirmed his involvement in 'Terminator 5' and said filming on the sequel is set to begin in January, 2014.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been presumed to return to his arguably most famous action movie franchise, 'Terminator,' since around the time he was leaving his California Governor's chair. Back then, he didn't have a script to even consider, but now that one is being developed, it seems that in fact he will be back for another installment.
As Arnold Schwarzenegger's new film - 'The Last Stand' - hits theaters this weekend, let's turn our attention to perhaps his most popular franchise. The actor was in talks to star in 'Terminator 5' after leaving public office but he never had an actual script. That's about to change as two writers have been hired to write a 'Terminator 5' script, kickstarting the upcoming sequel.
