Why Alan Taylor Could Mean Bad Things For The Terminator Franchise
What we know about the upcoming new Terminator movie, which is sometimes referred to as a reboot and sometimes as a sequel, could fit inside a single lightbulb at the "Tech Noir" nightclub. The movie is happening, and now has a director and everything, but details about the story are nonexistent, as writers Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier work on the script.
UPDATED: Terminator Reboot Gets A 2015 Release Date
The summer of 2015 is starting to sound like it will be one for the record books. In addition to the Terminator reboot, Independence Day 2, and Inside Out that year will also see the release of Star Wars Episode VII, The Avengers 2, Jurassic Park IV, The Fantastic Four reboot, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2 and Pirates of the Caribbean 5. It could very well end up being a year that goes down in blockbuster movie history.
Is Dwayne Johnson Being Eyed For Terminator 5?
When G.I. Joe: Retaliation was released back in March, our own Sean O'Connell and Kristy Puchko were on such a Dwayne Johnson high that they imagined what other lagging series could use a boost from The Rock. After all, the actor has earned the nickname "Franchise Viagra" by rejuvenating not only G.I. Joe, but also the Fast & Furious movies (not to mention giving us a reason to care about Journey 2: The Mysterious Island).
Arnold Schwarzenegger Will Somehow Play The Terminator In Terminator 5
The whole point of Terminators, and the entire reason Arnold Schwarenegger was cast as the terrifying cyborg to begin with, is that they are superior to humans. Superior strength, superior looks, superior lack of empathy-- they are built to pull off all the things that humans can't. So what happens when a Terminator comes off the factory line and he's got… wrinkles? And jowls? Has something gone horribly wrong on the Skynet assembly line?
Terminator 5 Might Be Heading Over To Paramount
Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures and David Ellison's Skydance Productions, which currently own the rights to the Terminator franchise, is now in negotiations with Paramount Pictures that could result in the major studio serving as distributor for the untitled Terminator 5. With a distributor in place the project would have a more realistic future, but as of now we don't know when they are thinking about starting production or when they are thinking about having a film ready for release.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Confirms He Will Be Back For Terminator 5
Arnold Schwarzenegger had a very rough weekend. The Last Stand, the movie featuring his first starring role since 2003, absolutely bombed at the box office, opening in ninth place and making only $6.2 million (to put that in perspective, it made less than both Django Unchained and Les Miserables, which are both now in their fourth week of release).
Terminator 5 Lands Shutter Island And Drive Angry Writers
This weekend sees the release of The Last Stand, a movie that features Arnold Schwarzenegger in his first starring role since Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines in 2003. But it's far from a one and done situation with the action legend - he is making a full comeback. Beyond this weekend's entertainment he also has the prison thriller The Tomb out later this year and he recently completed production on David Ayer's Ten.
Terminator 5 Will Be Rated R
Much like the Die Hard franchise before it, the folks behind Terminator Salvation made a huge mistake when they decided to make the movie PG-13. The only one in the series that isn't rated R, the move was made in the hopes of maximizing profits, but even that didn't work, as it managed to pull in only $125 million domestically on a $200 million budget.
Justin Lin May Be Back In For Terminator 5
The new owner of the rights to The Terminator, Annapurna Films, is so eager to get the franchise back on its feet that they want to put two new entries into production at the close of 2012. But if Annapurna Films is willing to halt production on the new films until Lin finishes The Fast and the Furious 6, he is willing to return to direct.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Puts His Comeback On Hold, Including Terminator 5
Arnold Schwarzenegger might be out of public office, but that doesn't mean he's not still open to a scandal. One of the bigger news stories of the last few days has been the actor/former governor's separation from wife Maria Shriver and the revelation that he fathered a son with an employee 10 years ago that he has kept a secret.
Bidding War Is On For Terminator Rights
If you're a fan of independent cinema, you might want to draft a thank you letter to Megan Ellison. Since February, Ellison's name has been mentioned alongside brilliant filmmakers like Spike Jonze, Charlie Kaufman, John Hillcoat, Andrew Dominik, Paul Thomas Anderson and Kathryn Bigelow, her company, Annapurna Pictures, putting up big bucks so that they can continue doing what they do best.
Director Justin Lin Debunks Terminator 5 Original Cast Rumor
Though he's made this rather sad shift in body shape, the idea of having Arnold Schwarzenegger back for another Terminator movie is pretty exciting. If they're going to shove another sequel down our throats, might as well have the original star doing the shoving, right?
Original Terminator Cast Coming Back, Unless Arnold Too Busy Crying Macho Instead
Right now we know there’s a plan out there, with Arnold attached to it, to make another Terminator movie. Just exactly what form that movie will take is still pretty much up in the air, but there’s plenty of rumor mill stuff floating around in the space left by the lack of official information.
Arnold Schwarzenegger Is Doing Terminator 5, Sequel From Fast Five Director
The years as California Governor may have moved Arnold Schwarzenegger closer to the middle, but thankfully, they have not squashed his will to destroy all in his path, especially now that Skynet is active
Terminator 5 May Destroy London
It seems unlikely, to me at least, that we’ll see another Terminator movie any time soon. Salvation wasn’t exactly well received and while it made money, it didn’t really make as much money as Warner Bros. probably hoped it would
