Concept Art by David Woodland >"Paramount Pictures and Marvel Entertainment present the epic adventure, "Thor", which spans the Marvel Universe from present day Earth to the realm of Asgard.

Thor is cast down to Earth by his father Odin (Anthony Hopkins) and is forced to live among humans. A beautiful, young scientist, Jane Foster (Natalie Portman), has a profound effect on Thor, as she ultimately becomes his first love. It’s while here on Earth that Thor learns what it takes to be a true hero when the most dangerous villain of his world sends the darkest forces of Asgard to invade Earth." Thor - was directed by Kenneth Branagh, from a screenplay written by Ashley Edward Miller, Zack Stentz and Don Payne. The film stars: Chris Hemsworth, »
Due to be released in Summer 2015, the anticipated Terminator reboot has been on the cards for a good few years, and now it looks like it’s finally coming together nicely.
Following last month’s news about actresses testing for the role of Sarah Connor, Production Weekly’s Twitter has revealed that the title for the fifth instalment in the franchise is set to be Terminator: Genesis.
The reboot is set to be a time-spanning story that sees Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his role as the eponymous Terminator, tasked with protecting Sarah Connor as she grows up. So, naturally, ‘Genesis’ seems like a very appropriate subtitle.
Brie Larson (Short Term 12), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), and Margot Robbie (About Time) were reportedly amongst those testing for the role of Sarah Connor, with Garrett Hedlund’s name thought to be on the short list for the part of Kyle Reese. »

Push The Sarah Connor Chronicles out of your memory because there's a new Terminator TV show in the works. Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures (who are behind the feature reboot) are bringing "Terminator" back to the small screen and have hired "X-Men: First Class" writters Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and executive produce.
Here's where things get interesting. Variety is reporting that the project will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film — where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming television show will take that same moment in a completely different direction. I have to admit that if the show plans to spin off c [Continued ...] »
There can be no doubt that the Terminator franchise is one of the most disappointing despite its well-known standing and beloved earlier instalments. Terminator 3 was a definite step down from its predecessors and Terminator Salvation isn’t even worth discussing. Yet there’s still interest in the franchise continuing with the hope that it can be rebooted and taken in a new direction with the weight of the other films holding it down. Part of this new direction involves the creation of a new TV series that will, hopefully, tie in to the planned rebooted trilogy. Personally, I won’t be holding my breath.
Perhaps the best thing to come out of the Terminator franchise in the last several years was Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. It was a short-lived TV series that had a warmer welcome than Salvation. Yet it never found a large audience to keep it going. »

The Terminator franchise is expanding beyond the already-confirmed big-screen reboot, with Skydance and Anapurna planning a new TV series to be created in conjunction with the next film. The new series is being written and produced by Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, while the writers of the new film, Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, will also be involved as executive producers. The new film and new series are expected to share an interlinked narrative, which is expected to take the franchise in a new direction to the one...

The Terminator franchise is heading back the big screen. Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are now looking to bring Terminator to television as well. Word is that a new series is in development and it will tie into the Alan Taylor film. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the pair behind X-men: First Class and Thor, will provide the script for the pilot. The franchise was previously brought to television as Terminator: The Sarah Connor whi… »
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. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each »

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 »
Back in July, word began to spread that the Bad Robot team were on the hunt for new writers to tackle the third Star Trek film, or at least take some of the load off regulars Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, who have become prolific producers and looked to step back a little. Then, it was Thor duo Ashley Miller Zack Stentz in talks (they have another job), but nothing ever solidified. Now, however, largely unknown scribes J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay have been hired instead.In a more surprising turn of events, Kurtzman will be stepping away entirely from this one, leaving Orci to work with the new pair on the film. Orci is the bigger Trekker of the pair, however, so perhaps he's more keen to keep close to the series. Paramount is hoping that this new film will be ready to leave cine-space dock in 2016 to »
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 »

We already know that a "Terminator" reboot trilogy is currently in the works. But now comes word that the plan is to also create a new "Terminator" TV series, to be written by "Thor" and "X-Men: First Class" writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller. The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first "Terminator" film (1984). 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. It's still not clear when the TV series will air. But the first installment in the reboot is set to hit theaters on July 1st, 2015. »
There's a new Terminator TV series going into development! Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are not only teaming to bring us the new movies, they will also be developing the TV series as well.
Producers have hired Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller to write and executive produce a new series, which will be in conjunction with the new feature films being released.
According to THR, 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 some surprising and dramatic ways."
This sounds like a pretty epic undertaking. Kind of like what Ron Howard wanted to do with the adaptation of »

Remember a few years ago when it was announced that Stephen King's The Dark Tower would be getting not only a series of big-screen movies, but a TV show that would show a whole side of the epic story that the film's would not? Well that ended up never happening, but brother and sister super producers Megan Ellison (Annapurna Pictures) and David Ellison (Skydance Productions) must have liked that idea, because now they're applying it to their coproduced reboot of The Terminator. THR is reporting that Annapurna and Skydance have hired Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller (writers of the previous Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles series) to write and executive produce a new show that will coexist with the new film series. And not only that, but they've offered us our...

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 »

A Terminator TV show is heading our way, because somehow the planned reboot of the movie just won't be enough to satiate fans. Producers for the upcoming fifth film announced today that Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller — who also worked on the previous terminator TV show, The Sarah Conner Chronicles — will write and executive produce this new series. There's no network attached yet, and details are scant except that the show will focus on a "critical moment" from the 1984 original movie. So much terminating! »

We’re interested to see if they share any cast members as well.
