Terminator 6 Recruits New Writer, First Plot Details Revealed

After Terminator: Genisys stunk to high heaven, it looked like the iconic sci-fi franchise might finally be over. However, we should have remembered the T-800’s immortal words, as Arnold Schwarzenegger’s robot assassin will be back once again in the upcoming Terminator 6. Previously, original director James Cameron made clear that the new film would distance itself from the past three installments in the series by only acting as a sequel to T2: Judgement Day. Linda Hamilton will even reprise her role as Sarah Connor for the first time since the 1991 sequel.

On top of that, Variety is reporting that the project has just hired a new screenwriter in Captain Phillips scribe Billy Ray. Apparently handpicked by Cameron and Tim Miller, who’s set to direct, Ray will base his script off a story treatment by Cameron, Miller and David Ellison, the founder of Skydance Productions (the

‘Terminator’ Writing Team Adds Billy Ray to Put Final Polish on Script
After assembling a writer’s room earlier this year to tackle the latest installment in the “Terminator” franchise, Tim Miller and James Cameron have brought on Billy Ray to join the team and give the final touches to the latest draft.

Cameron and Miller’s writer’s room included David Goyer, Justin Rhodes, and Josh Friedman. Ray is now coming on to polish the script that is based on a story conceived by Cameron, Miller, and Skydance founder David Ellison.

Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger are returning to the franchise with Skydance and Cameron producing the project. Plot details are being kept under wraps, although Cameron has said that the film will be a direct sequel to “Terminator 2: Judgment Day” since he played no part in the recent installments.

Captain Phillips” screenwriter Billy Ray has been hired to rewrite the new “Terminator” movie for Paramount and Skydance, TheWrap has learned. “Deadpool” breakout Tim Miller is slated to direct, with original director James Cameron producing the film which will disregard all sequels produced after 1991’s “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” The new “Terminator” film will also act as an introduction of a whole new cast of characters. “This is a continuation of the story from ‘Terminator 1’ and ‘Terminator 2.’ And we’re pretending the other films were a bad dream,” Cameron said in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter. “Or an alternate.

The Criterion Collection Will Resurrect Night Of The Living Dead, Silence Of The Lambs With 4K Blu-Rays

The Silence of the Lambs and Night of the Living Dead, two bona fide horror gems, are officially joining the Criterion Collection.

Each film classic will receive a 4K restoration, along with scores of special features, which will be available from February 13th, 2018. Now how’s that for a Valentine’s Day treat?

On a more somber note, news of this re-release arrives at a difficult time for the horror community: Silence of the Lambs director Jonathan Demme passed away back in April, while George A. Romero, the undisputed king of zombies, died in July. Indeed, it was difficult losing two legendary filmmakers in the space of three months, but this posthumous recognition ensures their finest achievements are ushered into the pantheon of great cinema.

Each release will come with different bonus features – Lambs, for instance, includes audio commentary from Demme himself, along with Jodie Foster, Anthony Hopkins and screenwriter

4K Re-Release Of Terminator 2: Judgment Day To Include Brand New Documentary

Skynet is feeling festive – or as festive as a sentient supercomputer can be.

That’s because the Powers That Be are plotting a 4K re-release of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, James Cameron’s timeless classic that originally pummeled its way into theaters all the way back in ’91. And even now, almost 30 years after its arrival, T2 is still widely considered to be one of the best sequels ever made.

So there’s a real sense of legacy coursing through the digital veins of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and on December 4th (December 26th for those in the States), sci-fi fans will be able to go up close and personal with Cameron’s magnum opus with a never-before-seen documentary. Entitled T2: Reprogramming the Terminator, the 55-minute video essay includes interviews with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Edward Furlong, Robert Patrick (T-1000) and James Cameron himself, who showers praise on the visionary work of Industrial Light & Magic.

'Scorpion' Actor Sues Robert Patrick, Producers for Alleged Stunt Gone Wrong

  • TMZ
Robert Patrick did a real number on one of his "Scorpion" co-stars ... at least according to a lawsuit the actor's filed against Patrick and the show.

According to the docs, Patrick -- best known as the T-1000 in "Terminator 2" -- "negligently struck" Fabrizio from behind.

Justice League review

Is Justice League the superhero event of 2017? No. Sadly, it isn’t.

Nb: The following contains a spoiler for Batman V Superman if you haven’t seen it yet.

Politicians mope behind their desks. Flags fly at half mast. A group of thugs upset a table of fruit and veg outside a supermarket. A homeless guy sits on a city pavement, gazes forlornly at the sky while clutching a sign that says, “I tried.” Yes, things have started looking pretty bleak since the end of Batman V Superman, and with its beacon of hope gone, humanity has drifted into a gloomy funk.

To make matters worse, there’s another alien threat on the horizon: the gigantic, horned despot Steppenwolf, who plans to unite three ancient Loot Boxes and unleash a devastating attack on the world. Those boxes don’t contain power, as Wonder Woman portentously explains - they are power.

"Terminator 6" Updates

  • SneakPeek
"Terminator 6", to be produced by James Cameron, directed by Tim Miller ("Deadpool"), starring Linda Hamilton as 'Sarah Connor' and Arnold Schwarzenegger as the 'T-800' machine, will be the first feature in a new trilogy, as a direct sequel to "Terminator 2: Judgment Day":

Cameron said the new trilogy will have "...predator drones and actual discussions...

"...on the ethics of having a robot have its own kill decision possibilities..."

"When I became aware of the fact that I could back into a control position on the rights," said Cameron, "then I started to ask myself artistically, 'Is there anything there?

"Is there anything to be said that I haven’t already said, and that would even be relevant in the 2020's ?

"I thought, 'Well, let’s look at that'. I mean, a lot of the things that were science fiction in 'Terminator' are now around us…

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 4K Ultra HD Release Date Confirmed

To this day, there are a handful of iconic roles associated with the immortal Arnold Schwarzenegger, the most recognizable (arguably) of those being the T-800. Having successfully catapulted the bodybuilder-turned-actor’s career into the stratosphere with 1984’s The Terminator, director James Cameron came back for another round in 1991 with Terminator 2: Judgement Day, sparking endless debate amongst the geek community in the time since as to which film is superior. Personally, I lean toward the original, but appreciate the merits of both.

As time has gone by, several sequels by way of other directors have debuted in cinemas, none of which garnered the acclaim of the first two installments. In fact, both Salvation and Genesys intended on kickstarting new multi-picture arcs, each of which obviously failed to do so. Furthermore, things didn’t go so well on the small screen, with The Sarah Connor Chronicles being cancelled by Fox after only two seasons.

The Punisher: All of the Different Frank Castles Ranked

Ahead of The Punisher on Netflix, Ben Robins ranks all of the different Frank Castles…

In an almost unprecedented act of genius, Marvel’s long lost, secretly loved but consistently butchered anti-hero The Punisher is finally getting his own ultra-violent spin-off series. And with star of just about every crime/drama movie/series in the last few years Jon Bernthal returning to re-don the skull-soaked tee after his first bow in Daredevil season 2, it feels like the perfect time to revisit all of the temporary Frank Castles that came before him.

Because it seems that Bernthal is actually here to stay, something that can’t be said of any of the hard-nosed actors that leapt into the role before him. In fact, Bernthal’s return to the role is the first time anybody has ever played the character more than once in an official context. Although as you’ll soon see,

Oscar Contenders: Hot Tips for Award-Campaign First-Timers
This is the honeymoon time for Oscar hopefuls, when every movie and every individual seem like a potential nominee. But it’s also a stressful period for first-timers, who’ve never been associated with an awards contender and have heard horror stories about the campaign trail.

To all of you hopefuls, congratulations on getting this far and stirring up positive buzz. And don’t worry: Campaigns can be fun. First, congratulations on doing great work. But awards season is long — four more months to go! — and you have some homework assignments:

Why Halloween Is Like Christmas for ‘Lore’ Creator Aaron Mahnke (Exclusive)

Why Halloween Is Like Christmas for ‘Lore’ Creator Aaron Mahnke (Exclusive)
Lore creator Aaron Mahnke wouldn’t necessarily label himself the voice of Halloween (or the month of October), when many fans of all things horror seek out new and classic thrills. But in the third year of the podcast, featuring non-fiction stories about the dark side of human nature about everything from haunted houses to witch hunters narrated by Mahnke, it’s become something of a phenomenon.

“It does feel like people are treating this like a piece of pop culture,” he tells Et of people having listening parties and enjoying it around campfires during October, which he says is the biggest month for downloads of the podcast. (In total, the podcast has accumulated over 96 million listens.) “It’s a pretty surreal feeling.”

This year, Lore, which has now released over 70 original episodes, is even bigger thanks to the expansion of the brand into a book series, The World of Lore, which launched with Monstrous

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says Terminator 6 Will Bring Franchise Back To Its Roots

There are plans for a new Terminator movie that will be released on July 26 of 2019. Unsurprisingly, said movie will be starring Arnold Schwarzenegger in one of his most iconic roles as one of the titular machines called the T-800. However, it is interesting to note that Schwarzenegger has stated that the new Terminator movie will be returning to the basics in a number of other ways, with examples ranging from Linda Thompson reprising her role as Sarah Connor to the new movie being a continuation to Terminator and Terminator 2 but not the three other Terminator movies that
