Having acquired the rights to Terminator for a hefty $20 million, producers Megan Ellison and David Ellison are wasting little time in capitalising on their investment. Not only is a new movie trilogy in the works, with the first instalment set for release in 2015 under director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones), but it's now been announced that the sci-fi franchise is heading back to the small screen for a "companion piece" to the new movie series.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller are set to write and produce the new series, which "will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984), and where the film's story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction.

The "Terminator" film franchise is being restarted, and along with it prospects that the story could return to TV as well.
Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures, which are producing the fifth film in the "Terminator" franchise, are also developing a series that will serve as a companion to the movie. The film is slated for a 2015 release, and Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to be back after not appearing in the last entry in the series, 2009's "Terminator Salvation."
Details about both the movie and the TV project are mostly under lock and key, but both are reportedly linked to the first "Terminator" movie, which was released in 1984. The series will follow a "critical moment" from the first film but play it out in a vastly different way.
There may be no future but what we make, but the future is about to get mighty complicated. In addition to the upcoming "Terminator" reboot trilogy -- featuring the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as one version or another of the titular cyborg -- the franchise is also planning a return to the small screen. Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures have announced that they'll be launching a new TV series that will tie in directly to the 2015 film and its sequels, according to Deadline. Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller ("X-Men: First Class," "Thor") will write the series and serve as exec producers, alongside the »

The Hollywood Reporter just broke the news that Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are teaming up to bring a new Terminator series to a television near you. That’s not all. Unlike the ill-fated Sarah Connor Chronicles, this one will tie-in directly to the upcoming rebooted film franchise.
THR describes the show like this:
“The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984) and, where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each other in surprising and dramatic ways.”
The creative team behind this new series is Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller- who are no strangers to adapting James Cameron’s cyborg creations to television. The duo also worked on Sarah Connor Chronicles, and their other past credits include Thor, »

Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions are expanding their Terminator franchise to the small screen, with a new TV series that will tie into the upcoming tentatively titled Terminator 5, which is being looked at as a reboot.
Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (Thor, X-Men: First Class) have signed on to write the pilot script and executive produce, with Terminator 5 writers Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis also serving as executive producers.
The story will follow a crucial moment from the original 1984 film The Terminator, taking the story in a completely different direction than the movie. The narratives of both the Terminator 5 movie and its subsequent sequels will be designed to intersect with the TV story line at some point in the future. The plan is similar to Marvel's cinematic universe being intertwined with ABC's Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., but on a much larger scale.
The Terminator is headed to the small screen. Four years after Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles ended its run on Fox, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are teaming to bring the Arnold Schwarzenegger franchise back to TV. The producers behind the upcoming fifth installment have tapped Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and executive produce a new Terminator television series that will be a companion piece to the rebooted trilogy. The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984), and where the film's story goes one way,

"Terminator" will be back ... on television.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the producers of the upcoming fifth film are working to return the franchise to the small screen four years after the end of Fox's "The Sarah Conner Chronicles." The new series, headed by "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, will go hand-in-hand with the movie reboot.
The television series will jump off of a critical moment in the original 1984 "Terminator" movie. Then, as the trilogy reboot and the show progress, they'll intersect "in surprising and dramatic ways."
After languishing in limbo for some time, the movie reboot of "Terminator" is finally starting to heat up, with a slated July 2015 release. As we reported earlier, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke and "21 Jump Street" actress Brie Larson are rumored to be on the short list to play Sarah Conner.

Having built a name as one of the hardest working, but perhaps least discerning action movie stars currently working, Jason Statham returns to cinemas this weekend with his latest – Homefront – a self-conscious attempt by Stallone to give the actor his “Copland moment,” and cast off some of the more disparaging critical comments that he invariably seems to attract.
Regardless of how you might feel about his range, Statham is one of very few movie action icons of his generation. Senior citizens like Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger still crank out tough guy flicks because there’s a distinct lack of talent in the field when it comes to younger performers, partly thanks to a dearth of quality, and partly because of the evolution of the film market.
Statham is an exception: he has proven time and time again that he’s a force to be reckoned with onscreen, particularly when »

Nelson Mandela’s passing today at the age of 95 had a strong impact on Hollywood. While the South African politician and revolutionary leader has been depicted in films such as the upcoming TWC biopic “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” he also partnered with insiders on charity campaigns. Here, he is remembered by some who knew him:
“One of the privileges of making movies is having the opportunity to immortalize those who have made a profound impact on humanity,” said TWC Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein. “We count ourselves unspeakably fortunate to have been immersed in Nelson Mandela’s story and legacy. It’s been an honor to have been granted such proximity to a man who will go down as one of history’s greatest freedom fighters and advocates for justice. I have had the privilege of spending time with President Mandela and I can say his sense of humor was as great as his optimism. »

Vice President Joe Biden: "Nelson Mandela once said, 'A good head and a good heart are always a formidable combination.' Mandela's wisdom and compassion were formidable enough to change the world. First his courage and then his forgiveness inspired us all, and challenged us to do better. In the words of the South African poet Peter Horn, he 'dreamed the world another way.' I saw his world the way it used to be when I visited South Africa as a 34 year old Senator. When I exited the plane I was directed to one side of the tarmac, while the African American congressmen traveling with me were sent to the other side. I refused to break off, and the officials finally relented. When I tried to enter Soweto township with Congressmen »
