"I've always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when A Good Day to Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, 'Really? They're gonna make another one?' and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it's healthy to have that because you want it to be something special, you want to keep that eye for quality sharp."
"But when I read this, I was pretty into it and the story's cool. It's attached a great cast as well. I think Emilia Clarke's wonderful and she's got a lot of support and stuff behind her. And Jason Clarke as well I'm a big admirer of so, yeah, it's gonna be really cool, »

Amplify has acquired U.S. rights to the Terrence Malick-produced biopic of young Abraham Lincoln entitled "The Better Angels," starring Jason Clarke, Diane Kruger, Brit Marling, and Wes Bentley. The poetic black-and-white period drama, which marks the debut of editor-turned-filmmaker A.J. Edwards, played at the Sundance and Berlin film festivals. Amplify plans a fall release in theaters, followed by a VOD and home video release in early 2015. "The Better Angels" follows Lincoln during his formative years (remember the 1939 John Ford classic "Young Mr. Lincoln," starring Henry Fonda?). Set in the harsh wilderness of Indiana in 1817, the film explores Lincoln's complex family dynamic and the two women who guided him. Austin, Texas native Edwards has worked with his mentor Malick over the last decade, first as an editor on "The New World," then as second-unit director and editor on "The Tree of Life," "To The Wonder," and the forthcoming "Knight of Cups. »

The world collectively rolled their eyes when it was announced that one of the most famous franchises in history would be ‘rebooted’ in 2015. Terminator is one of the most iconic films of all time and its sequel Terminator 2: Judgement Day, is probably one of the only sequels to outmatch its outstanding predecessor in almost every way. The two subsequent sequels that followed were less than spectacular to say the least…and so here we are with a newly minted Terminator series due in a mere year and a half, widely rumoured to be titled Terminator: Genesis.
Ordinarily I would beg for Hollywood to leave this franchise alone after the terrible Terminator 3: Rise Of The MacHines and Terminator: Salvation, however this new film will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger himself. The chance to see The Terminator return for potentially the last time is definitely a tantalising one, »

Sharing in the skepticism that many actors feel- and $omehow overcome- regarding appearing in a reboot, Jai Courtney told IGN that he wasn’t sure about taking the role of Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis. Echoing statements made by other actors in recent updates of older properties- like Joel Kinnaman in RoboCop & Miles Teller in Fantastic Four- Courtney implies that it took the inclusion of other great talent involved to make him feel like Terminator: Genesis was a worthy project. He also points out how this won’t be the first time he’s done something like this.
“I’ve always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when [A Good Day to] Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, ‘Really? They’re gonna make another one?’ and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it’s healthy to have »

In this day and age, its hard not to be skeptical of any reboot or remake. And it's not only fans that feel this way, but also the actors that appear in such cinematic undertakings. The Terminator franchise has quite a legacy, and newly cast Jai Courtney reveals that he was highly skeptical of Terminator: Genesis, where he will appear as Kyle Reese, father of John Connor.
The story will apparently jump through the timeline of the original four-part saga, working like 2009's Star Trek in setting up a new series of events. This will not be a direct continuation of what's come before it, but instead serves as a true reboot of the material. As the timeline shifts, the narrative will be free from its past complications in a way we haven't seen before. Events from 1984's The Terminator and 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day will be revisited, and »
Australian actor Jai Courtney recently spoke about the upcoming reboot of the "Terminator" franchise, "Terminator: Genesis," in which he's slated to play Kyle Reese. The actor says he was as skeptical as anyone about the project, telling IGN:
"I've always had a bit of skepticism about something being rebooted. I remember when [A Good Day to] Die Hard came around a few years ago, I was like, 'Really? They’re gonna make another one?' and then I found myself in it and totally invested in it. I think it's healthy to have that [skepticism] because you want it to be something [special], you want to keep that eye for quality sharp.

Director: Yorgos Lanthimos
Writer(s): Lanthimos & Efthimis Filippou (both featured in pic above)
Co-Producers: Haut et Court, Faliro House and Lemming Films
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
One of the most exciting filmmakers to emerge on the global film scene over the past five years has been Yorgos Lanthimos, the Greek director, whose last two films, Dogtooth (2009) and Alps (2011) were incredibly strange, original, and undoubtedly haunting in their depictions of worlds severely off kilter (his influence can already be seen in other emerging filmmakers from his native country with 2013’s Miss Violence from Alexandros Avranas bearing a striking resemblance to the bizarre drama of Lanthimos. Several months back, funding was announced from several »

Exclusive: Safe House helmer Daniel Espinosa is in talks with Warner Bros to develop to direct Blood On Snow, which Leonardo DiCaprio is eyeing as a potential star vehicle. This is a two-book series that Norwegian crime novelist Jo Nesbo has written under the pseudonym Tom Johansson. The books, which Knopf will publish in two installments this fall and the following spring, will be produced by Kevin McCormick’s Langley Park (which is bringing Charlie And The Chocolate Factory to Broadway) and DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson Killoran’s Appian Way, which is coming off Best Picture nominee The Wolf Of Wall Street. They will now go out to scribes to draft the tale of a hit man who’s forced to go into hiding after he fails on a job and finds himself on the run with his intended target, who unfortunately happens to be his boss’s wife. Landing Espinosa is a coup. »

"Terminator: Genesis" the first new film in a stand-alone trilogy, has finalized its main cast and will reportedly acknowledge the films of director James Cameron, creator of the 'Terminator' universe with a linking story arc:
According to new reports, "Terminator: Genesis" will see characters time-traveling and finding themselves moving through the events of "The Terminator" and "Terminator 2: Judgment Day". There will also reportedly be a third time period outside of those films, set in the future and constituting a 'home base' for some of the characters.
"Most of it will be done in New Orleans, with some filming in San Francisco and maybe a little in La. The last 'Terminator' was when I was Governor. So I couldn't be in that movie, but now »

Just a few weeks before filming starts on the fifth "Terminator" film, "Terminator: Genesis," the series' original star, Arnold Schwarzenegger is speaking out about the movie for the first time, telling fan site TheArnoldFans.com that he's happy to be re-joining the franchise.
At the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus, Ohio this weekend -- yes, Schwarzenegger has his own annual athletic festival -- the site caught up with the actor, and asked him to discuss "Genesis." Schwarzenegger happily obliged, revealing that the shoot was expected to last between four and four-and-a-half months and would take place primarily in New Orleans, with some filming set for San Francisco and possibly Los Angeles.
"I'm really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn't be in that movie but now I'm back again and they »

“Production is set to start in the middle or in the end of April, it will be a four or four-and-a-half month shoot,” states Schwarzenegger. “I’m really looking forward to that because as you know, the last when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn’t be in that movie but now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film...

(Cbr) Arnold Schwarzenegger is back — well, almost back, returning to his iconic role as the T-800 for director Alan Taylor’s upcoming "Terminator Genesis", which stars the likes of Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke and Jai Courtney. During a recent festival appearance, Schwarzenegger said he expects to begin production on the new "Terminator" movie shortly: “I’m really looking forward to that because as you know, the last time when they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor and so I couldn’t be in that movie but now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film.” “The script is fantastic,” he added, “so I’m really looking forward to this film.” In other "Terminator" news, it appears that Schwarzenegger isn’t the only returning player in the mix.

Some possible story details have leaked from the upcoming Terminator: Genesis movie currently in development at Paramount Pictures. The movie is being directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), and it stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor, and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese. The information that has come to light is from Movie Hole, who says it comes from a very reputable source that they believe is "one-hundred percent on-the-money."
So, if you don't want anything spoiled for you I suggest you don't read ahead. I do have to say though, this sounds like a really cool concept that almost plays out like Back to the Future Part 2 and J.J. Abrams' Star Trek. The movie is described as a fresh reboot of the series, and now let's get into the meat of it...
So apparently Schwarzenegger’s character »

Even though it's headed our way in a little over a year, we still know next to nothing about Terminator: Genesis, the fifth installment in the storied franchise. Today some beans have been spilled. Read on!
First, MovieHole reports that they've learned from a reputable source that the film is being dubbed a fresh reboot but that it will also revisit iconic moments from the first two Terminator films. So, essentially, it's looking like it's going to be a reboot that's tailor-made for fans of the originals, which sounds like music to our ears.
The film will take us back and forward between the future, 1984 (The Terminator), 1991 (Terminator 2 : Judgement Day) and other important and influential time periods in the life of the Connor family. Iconic scenes, including the Terminator's arrival on Earth, will be given a fresh new makeover, making the film both a reboot and its own movie. »

If you are determined to reboot a fractured and scattered movie franchise such as Terminator, there is only one way to tie it all together before moving forward, and that’s with the original cyborg himself. Speaking recently to TheArnoldFans.com at the Arnold Sports Festival, Schwarzenegger took time to tease the upcoming fifth instalment – Terminator: Genesis.
“I’m really looking forward to that because, as you know, the last time they did the Terminator, it was when I was Governor, and so I couldn’t be in that movie. But, now I’m back again and they are very excited about having me in the film, and David Ellison, who has produced all the big movies lately, has plenty of money to do it well. He’s in partnership with Paramount Pictures who are going to release the movie through their distribution. I’m really looking forward to that »

With next summer's Terminator: Genesis, the Terminator franchise is getting a reboot except for the one piece it can't seem to let go: Arnold Schwarzenegger. He was even awkwardly shoehorned into Terminator: Salvation, and now he'll be along for the new installment even though all of the other major characters—Sarah Connor, John Connor, and Kyle Reese—are being playing by new actors. Speaking to TheArnoldFans, Schwarzenegger said, "We start filming in the middle or in the end of April and it will be a four or four-and-a-half month long shoot. We will be filming it in New Orleans with some of it in San Francisco and maybe a little of it in La but most of it will be done in New Orleans." Hit the jump for the full quote from Schwarzenegger as well as some possible details about the script. The film also stars Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, »
