THR has reported that three writers have signed on for the third Star Trek film, in the J.J. Abrams-rebooted series. One is the returning Robert Orci, and the other two are J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay. While Orci’s work is fairly well-known, including the first two Trek films, Mission: Impossible 3, The Legend of Zorro, Cowboys & Aliens, and more, Payne and McKay are relative newcomers. Their biggest credit, to date, was that they wrote the script for Boilerplate, a robot film that Abrams has been developing for some time. Of note, this will be the first of the new Trek films that isn’t co-written by Alex Kurtzman.

Though they were on TV in one form a few years ago with the under-seen and underrated Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, it would appear the machines are ready to launch another assault on our small screens, and we have Annapurna Pictures and Skydance (not Skynet) Productions to thank for it. The producers behind the planned new Terminator trilogy are working on a series to extend the story of the film currently in development.X-Men: First Class / Thor writers Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz (whose TV credits include Fringe and The Sarah Connor Chronicles) will act as executive producers to launch and guide the new show, alongside current Terminator film script bods Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.What plotlines will the show use? That info has not yet been released, for obvious spoiler reasons, but Deadline reports that it'll follow a plot moment from James Cameron’s 1984 original, yet spin »
Details on the forthcoming new Terminator film suggested it was going for the reboot route as opposed to another sequel. While Arnold Schwarzenegger remains attached to the film, recasting roles for Sarah Connor and time-travelling protector (and impregnator) Kyle Reese may hold clues to the new direction for the Skydance and Annapurna Pictures production of the classic James Cameron-creation. Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor is set to direct the sci-fi epic, with Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson said to be the final two remaining and fighting it out for the role of unborn resistance leader’s hunted mother.
We’re now hearing Taylor’s sequel/reboot has an official title of Terminator: Genesis as well as a brand new series not connected to the cancelled Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The new show will be used as a tie-in to the upcoming film and will split »

Sure it's Saturday and everyone's out shopping and stuff, but we're here keeping an eye on things for you as always! Next up is a tidbit from Production Weekly, who confirms that the production offices for the Alan Taylor directed reboot are up and running...
...and that they have what may be the official title: Terminator: Genesis.
Set for a July 2015 release, the latest Terminator will be the fifth installment of the storied movie series, which began in 1984 as an indie distributed by Orion. Schwarzenegger starred in all but the last one, 2009’s Terminator Salvation, in which he made only a digitally processed cameo.
The film's plot details have not been revealed other than this is the first installment in a stand-alone trilogy. Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with Paramount with David Ellison producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script, »

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.
As he always promised he would, The Terminator came back in a big way this year with announcements regarding both a big screen reboot, set for 2015, and even a series of upcoming video games...

Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller ("X-Men: First Class," "Thor") are penning and executive producing the series. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, who are writing the upcoming film, are also executive producing the series.
The series is said to "follow a critical moment from the original 1984 Terminator movie, taking it in a completely different direction that the film."
The reboot film is expected to be tied to the original 1984 film as well. As both the trilogy and series progress, the two narratives will be designed to ultimately intersect.

A new Terminator TV series is being made.
The series is expected to diverge from the original 1984 film, taking it in a completely different direction at a pivotal moment.
Although casting rumours for the movie reboot have emerged, plot details are unknown.
However, it is likely to follow the same pattern as the TV show as the two narratives are said to have been designed to overlap.
This will not be the first time that the Terminator franchise makes the crossover to the small screen.
“Terminator” continues to make good on its “I’ll be back” promise — this time, with a new TV show.
Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures — the shingles behind Paramount’s 2015 “Terminator” reboot — have teamed to develop a fresh “Terminator” television series, hiring “X-Men: First Class” scribes Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and exec produce.

Skydance and Annapurna expect the new “Terminator” TV series and rebooted “Terminator” film franchise to have intersecting narratives, as well.
This won’t be the first time that »

Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures, the companies behind the upcoming Terminator film trilogy, are expanding the franchise to television with a TV series to be done in conjunction with the first rebooted Terminator film slated for release in 2015.

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.
It appears the plan for Terminator 5 is not just to reboot the famed Arnold Schwarzenegger franchise on the big screen but on TV as well. Skydance and Annapurna are planning a new television show that will be executive produced by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier who are writing Terminator 5. The series will be written and run by writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller who wrote Thor and X-men: First Class. Details about Terminator 5 are being kept secret, but according to Deadline, both »

The Terminator 5 casting race is starting to heat up even more, with a new report that reveals Emilia Clarke is the front runner for the Sarah Connor role, with Brie Larson also a top contender. We reported last month that both actresses were in contention for the role, alongside Margot Robbie.
Emilia Clarke reportedly has the edge over Brie Larson since the actress previously worked with director Alan Taylor on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, where she plays Daenerys Targaryen. Both actresses have tested for the coveted role, although it isn't known when a final decision will be made. Brie Larson is coming off of critically-acclaimed performances in Short Term 12 and The Spectacular Now. Emilia Clarke will next be seen on the big screen in Dom Hemingway.
With Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his role as the titular Terminator in Paramount's 2015 reboot of the mega-popular franchise, it's looking like the series may be able to find its way back on track after all. But who will fill out the other iconic roles? That's what we're here to talk about today.
As reported by Deadline, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke (pictured) and The Spectacular Now's Brie Larson are still being considered for the role of Sarah Connor. Paramount and director Alan Taylor are apparently looking closely at both actresses, who have tested for producers and are the current frontrunners.
The plan is to cast the Sarah Connor role before Kyle Reese and John Connor, both of whom will be characters in the new film.
Stay tuned for more details about this developing story!

There’s still a whole lot we don’t know for certain about the upcoming Terminator 5, otherwise known as Terminator (2015). However, Arnold Schwarzenegger is confirmed to reprise as the titular killing machine (even though he’s now 66 years old), drawing from a screenplay written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) that will reboot the sci-fi franchise’s convoluted timeline, in order to setup for a potential new stand-alone movie trilogy.
Alan Taylor has left news of him directing the film as “rumor” for the time being, though that hasn’t prevented the Thor: The Dark World helmer from saying that – in the purely-hypothetical situation that ...

With a new entry in The Terminator series on its way, fans are pretty anxious to see their beloved franchise get back on track and back to business. Some of them even have some pretty neat ideas on just whom Arnie should do battle with in the next entry in the franchise.
Case in point: a new Facebook petition to get Jean-Claude Van Damme a role in the new Terminator film! In retrospect, this could actually work. Not the petition maybe, but if you think about it, Van Damme plays great bad guys, and he's proved that he still has it. Honestly, we're all for this.
Jcvd himself caught wind of this movement and released the following response. "This is amazing! Thanks to the wonderful fan group behind this nice page. The fan-made CGI galleries you have created are incredible. Answering your questions, I would definitely love to join The Terminator franchise with Mr. »

The ultimate and award-winning retrospective on the A Nightmare on Elm Street franchise, Never Sleep Again (review), is getting ready to hit Blu-ray this January; and if you've never seen it or just want to see it in hi-def, here's the chance you've been waiting for!
Be warned: This is the same exact cut with the same features from the Collector's Edition DVD. There's nothing new, but honestly, what else could there possibly be left to say? It covers it All, and the remake in no way warrants mention.
Look for it online and in stores on January 21st, 2014, via Image Entertainment!

Earlier in the week we heard that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) are under consideration for the role of Sarah Connor in director Alan Taylor's (Thor: The Dark World) upcoming Terminator reboot, with Boyd Holbrook (The Host) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also up for John Connor.
Well according to The Hollywood Reporter, there's truth in the rumours that Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson are set to test for Sarah Connor, while Garrett Hedlund is actually under consideration for the part of Kyle Reese, with Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) also said to be in the mix. However, Taylor has apparently identified his number one candidate for John Connor, with the site reporting that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to succeed his The Dark Knight Rises co-star Christian Bale in »

With a new entry in The Terminator franchise on its way, fans are pretty anxious to know who, if anyone, from the original series will be coming back to do battle with the machines. Today we have a clearer picture.
THR reports that director Alan Taylor (the truly badass Thor: The Dark World) is prepping to begin testing actors and actresses for the sci-fi feature project, which is being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures, and Skydance Productions. The testing will begin next week, with Taylor seeing Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now), as well as another actress vying for the part of young Sarah Connor. Margot Robbie’s name has also surfaced in connection with the role.
Taylor will also be searching for his young Kyle Reese, the man who will father John. Those actor tests will occur at a later date, but insiders say Garrett Hedlund »
