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. »

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. »

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 »
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 »

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.
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.
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,

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.

"Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke and "21 Jump Street" actress Brie Larson are said to be the two names left that are vying for the lead role of a young Sarah Connor in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot at Annapurna Pictures.
Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World") is onboard to direct the project, and Paramount and Taylor are reportedly aiming to cast the Sarah Connor role before locking down the John Connor and Kyle Reese roles.
Clarke is said to currently be the front runner, and has had experience working with Taylor on HBO's "Game of Thrones". At last report Tom Hardy was being eyed to play human resistance leader John Connor.
Both casting possibilities have a nice simpatico - Clarke's Thrones co-star Lena Headey played Sarah Connor in the "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" TV series, while Hardy's "The Dark Knight Rises" co-star Christian Bale played John Connor in "Terminator Salvation »
