June 28th, 2013 by bash Comments

The much talked about Terminator movie has been confirmed, only this time as a trilogy.

In a statement, Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures announced they will partner on a reboot, to be released by Paramount Pictures on June 26, 2015. No word on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will star despite the actor saying recently that he would be back in the role as a futuristic cyborg.

“The first in a stand-alone trilogy, “Terminator” will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (“Avatar,” “Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (“Drive Angry”) are attached to write the screenplay,” the statement reads.

“Launched in 1984 with star Arnold Schwarzenegger as the title character, “Terminator” spanned 3 subsequent films, which have earned over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

“David Ellison most recently executive produced, along with his partners at Paramount, “World War Z,” “Star Trek Into Darkness,” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation” and “Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol”. A 5th installment of in the “Mission: Impossible” franchise is in active development, along with a 3rd film in the “G.I. Joe” franchise, among other films.

“Megan Ellison most recently produced the Academy Award®-nominated “Zero Dark Thirty,” “The Master” and executive produced “Spring Breakers” via her Annapurna Pictures banner and has David O. Russell’s “American Hustle,” Spike Jonze’s “Her,” and Bennett Miller’s “Foxcatcher” set for release later this year.”

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
