TERMINATOR Distribution Rights Head To Paramount; Producers Now Attached
Despite Arnold Schwarzenegger's recent claims that work is still moving ahead on a fifth instalment of the Terminator franchise, it's been a long time since we heard anything concrete. Well, it is now being reported that Paramount want the rights and that two well-known producers are attached.
The Wrap reports that Paramount Pictures are now in negotiations to acquire the rights to distrubite the highly anticipated fifth instalment of the Terminator franchise. Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) were hired to pen the screenplay back in January, although plans for Justin Lin to direct fell apart before that due to his commitments to Fast & Furious 6 (he was said to still be open to working on the project and is now free after deciding not to return for the next part of that franchise). What we DO know however is that Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures and David Ellison's Skydance Productions will produce the film and that it is hoped that production can begin as early as next year. How excited are you guys for this movie?
