June 26th 2015 is a date that you might want to mark on your calendar (assuming you have a 2015 calendar already). Yes indeed, for Paramount, Annapurna Pictures, and Skydance Productions have announced that this will be the release date for the “rebooted Terminator movie.” According to the press release (which you can read below), the new film will be the first part of a stand-alone trilogy. A stand-alone trilogy and a reboot would suggest that this new film will be recreating the Terminator mythology from scratch. However Arnold Schwarzenegger has stated that he will be playing the cyborg once again, despite that fact that no casting is mentioned in the press release.
2015 already has a bumper crop of movie releases with AVENGERS ASSEMBLE 2, ANT-MAN, THE FANTASTIC FOUR, INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 5 (yawn!) Pixar’s FINDING DORY, THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PART 2, JURASSIC PARK 4, possibly STAR WARS: EPISODE VII and in all probability MAN OF STEEL 2. And with the price of tickets creeping ever upwards, now might be the time to think about selling the family silver!
Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures have jointly announced they will partner on a rebooted “TERMINATOR” movie, to be released by Paramount Pictures on June 26, 2015.
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.
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
