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 »

Director Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World"), will helm the new "Terminator" feature, titled "Terminator: Genesis", to be released by Paramount June 26, 2015, as the first film in a new stand-alone trilogy.
Annapurna Pictures purchased the rights to the "Terminator" May 2011, with the stipulation that if nothing is done with the property by a specific date, screen rights would revert back to "Terminator" co-creators James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd.
"The Terminator" released in 1984, was inspired by themes and premises by science fiction author Harlan Ellison, then scripted by Gale Anne Hurd and Cameron, with direction by Cameron, after producer Roger Corman passed on the project.
Michael Biehn played 'Kyle Reese', a soldier from the future sent back in time to protect Sarah.

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 »

Is Terminator: Genesis the Title of the Upcoming Reboot?
Aside from those pesky rumors that Terminator 5 will focus on a young Sarah Connor, with both Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson vying for the role in a story that will change the events seen in the original 1984 The Terminator, as the machine arrives in the past to hunt her down before she becomes pregnant, not much is known about this upcoming reboot from Annapurna Pictures and Paramount.
Today, the usually reliable Production Weekly sent out the following Tweet, which 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.

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.As for what plotlines the show will 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, »
The thing is, Terminator already has a bunch of time travel going on, the very thing that is going to revitalize the X-Universe.
So, in honor of a bunch of crazy new time travel, let’s look at the current state of the Terminator Timelines. They are many and they are confusing.
[Author's Note: Tweet screencaps are read bottom to top].
I archived this conversation because you do Not f*ck with Terminator timelines.
In order to discuss how this works, we’re going to be discussing a certain version of time travel that I will now try to explain in the simplest way possible: bullet’d assumptions:
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. (Interestingly, Clarke's fellow "Game of Thrones »

Over the past month or so we've heard plenty of speculation surrounding casting on the upcoming Terminator reboot from director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), and it seems that Paramount Pictures has now identified the front runners to step into the shoes of Sarah Connor, with Deadline reporting that the studio is "looking closely" at Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larsen (Short Term 12) for the role.
Both Clarke and Larsen have previously been mentioned as candidates for Sarah Connor, while Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) have also been said to be under consideration. Meanwhile Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) is said to be Taylor's pick for John Connor, the leader of the Resistance, and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) have been mentioned with regards to Kyle Reese. »

The action franchise heading back the big screen in 2015, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are now looking at bringing Terminator to television as well. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that a new series is in development that 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 Chronicles" (which also featured script work by Miller and Stentz). The new series is said to split from the timeline of James Cameron's 1984 original in a way that will allow it to connect back to the upcoming big screen reboot.

Paramount Pictures and director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) are in the middle of casting actors for the upcoming "Terminator" reboot and are in talks with Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) to play the role of Sarah Connor. Both actresses have tested for the production and are the current frontrunners. Deadline says that Clarke may end up getting the role, mostly because Taylor directed her on HBO's "Game of Thrones." Regarding the plot of the reboot... Kyle Reese, the character played by Michael Biehn in the original film, will appear in the new movie as well. So it seems that time-traveling will be part of the story. Arnold Schwarzenegger is already on board to reprise his role. »

Though most of the Internet is understandably focused on the news of the casting of a new Wonder Woman today, there’s also been a little bit of chatter going on focusing on yet another modern icon of feminist strength and womanly power. According to Deadline, some casting progress has been made on that Terminator reboot that Annapurna Pictures is putting together alongside director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World). To be more specific, it’s looking like they’re getting pretty close to finding their Sarah Connor. It’s probably a good thing that Taylor and company have decided to tackle the problem of finding a new Sarah Connor first, because other than Arnold Schwarzenegger’s performance as the hulking killer cyborg in James Cameron’s first Terminator film, the most iconic character to come out of the entire Terminator franchise is likely the young mother-to-be who is targeted for death in that first film.

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!

While many of us are still grumbling over Paramount's Terminator reboot, casting for the project is firing up with two of Hollywood's most buzzed about ingénues facing off. Deadline reports Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson are at the top of director Alan Taylor's short list of actresses for the role Sarah Connor. Both have reportedly auditioned before the pic's producers. But Linda Hamilton's combat boots will be pretty hard to fill, even for two such talented starlets. Clarke was first mentioned in connection with the project in early November. But back then, she was reportedly contending with The Wolf of Wall Street's Margot Robbie for the role. While Robbie may still be in the running, she's not mentioned in the Deadline piece, but Clarke is said to have the edge over Larson. Frankly, between the two Clarke seems the more obvious choice.
