Terminator 5

The highly controversial, but no less impressive, Terminator: Genysis seems to be pulling out all the stops for this third time’s the charm attempt to make a bigger, better franchise for the cyborg saga. The seemingly ambitious project  looks to re-write Terminator history so that this fifth installment is neither a remake or a reboot, while at the same time it recasts the classic roles from the 30-year-old film to tell a new story that takes place inside the original film. Only Arnold Schwarzenegger remains of course, he will play the older, yet still bad ass, T-800. Here’s the weird thing, in the last trailer, the film revealed what looked like a pretty big spoiler. And now, in the new poster and TV ad, it seems as if Genisys is doubling and tripling down on the spoilage. The good news, at least in the case of the TV commercial, is that it’s Japanese. So you’re fairly unlikely to see it if you’re hoping to avoid spoilers.

I hate to say this, but this new information about Terminator: Genisys actually has me intrigued. I know! I’m so gullible. Anyway, we’re starting to get some legitimate plot details about the next phase in the Terminator franchise, Genisys, which comes out next summer and, if all goes according to plan, it will be the first in a new trilogy of Terminator films. A lot has remained unknown about the film, including where in the Terminator timeline the movie will fit, and what role Arnold Schwarzenegger‘s paradoxically Old Terminator will have in it, but this new information from a very reliable source makes me wonder if that Terminator resurgence just might be in the cards after all. Or, you know, gullible. (more…)

Whether you like it or not, there will be yet another Terminator movie coming our way. And while the last installment to hit the big screen was sans Arnie, Terminator: Genesis will not only be bringing the ex-Governator back to the franchise, but recasting the main roles as well. Now some more details are leaking between the cracks, potentially telling us a bit about what to expect from the new flick. (more…)

There’s some more news out on the Terminator 5 front. Nope, it’s not another Sarah Connor casting tid-bit or who the new John Connor/Kyle Reese might be. This time around it’s all about the title. Word around the Internet water cooler is that Arnold, director Alan Taylor, and the other creative powers that be involved in Terminator 5 have settled on a production name for the movie. Could it make the cut to the big screen? (more…)

Okay. So we know that Terminator, which is either the fifth film in the Terminator series or some combination of a continuation or reboot of the franchise, is currently in production under the combined auspices of Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions, and Annapurna Pictures. We also know that the film is being written by Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry), and that Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor is in some state of negotiation to get behind the camera for the project. Now there’s one more thing we know, it will now be released on July 1st, 2015 instead of June 26th, 2015.

So what does this buy the film in terms of calendar advantages? No one can say. As it stands now, Terminator will now open the same long weekend as Independence Day 2, which means that the two sci-fi titans will now go head-to-head on the July 4th long weekend in 2015. The previous release date would have given Terminator a couple of days to build momentum over ID4-2, so maybe Paramount and its partners want to make Fox, the studio behind ID4, blink and move their own expensive sequel out of the way in what is already a very crowded Summer 2015 playing field. So what’s the plan? Your guess is as good as there’s I bet.

More news as it develops.

terminator-1984-linda-hamilton-michael-biehn

At Nerd Bastards we’re no strangers to weird movie rumors, we deal with them on a daily basis, but this latest tidbit concerning Terminator 5 really boggles the mind.

Comic Book Movie is reporting that, in addition to Arnold Schwarzenegger, original Terminator co-stars Linda Hamilton and Michael Biehn are also being courted by the film’s producers. No word on exactly what their status is: Are they negotiating? Has the offer been merely extended? Is this for a full-on supporting role, or are they only going to cameo? Who knows.

As I’m sure you know Hamilton and Biehn had pretty pivotal roles in The Terminator. She played Sarah Connor, mother of humanity’s future savior John Connor, and he played Kyle Reese, a soldier from the future sent back in time to protect Sarah, and, inadvertently (by design) father her child. It would seem unlikely that Hamilton and Biehn would be appearing as Sarah and Kyle though, so could something else be afoot?

Naturally. Remember that rumor about Terminator 5 taking place in the 1950s and is about a grizzled old man (Schwarzenegger) who protects Sarah Connor’s parents from an all new, more deadly Terminator played by Dwayne Johnson? Hamilton and Biehn be recast in this provocative new setting too, although they may still be too old to play Sarah Conner’s parents. Of course all this is merely rumor, and everything about the production of Terminator 5, with the exception of its existence, should be taken with a grain of salt.

But what do you say Bastards, want to see a Terminator reunion of Schwarzenegger, Hamilton and Biehn? Sound off below.

Taylor to Move On From Thor to Terminator?

Thor-2_-alan-taylor

The scuttlebutt has been good for the upcoming sequel Thor: The Dark World, which suggests that director Alan Taylor was able to capitalize on the promise of the first film and potentially deliver something great. But can he do it again? Paramount Pictures and Annapurna Pictures are hoping so as Variety is reporting that Taylor has signed up to direct the next installment of the Terminator series, another franchise with potential, but one that needs even more help than Thor.

To recap the situation, Paramount and Annapurna are the latest companies to acquire the Terminator rights and try to launch a compelling film series that might capitalize on the two, original James Cameron-filmed Terminator movies. For a while it seemed that Fast & Furious filmmaker Justin Lin would get the job done, but out of a list that reportedly included Ang Lee, Rian Johnson and Denis Villeneuve, it seems that Taylor has emerged victorious.

But what sort of Terminator will Taylor make? There was a script by Laeta Kalorgridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) that, according to rumor, was about a terminator (to be played by Dwayne Johnson) who is sent back in time to the 1950s to kill Sarah Connor’s parents, and the Good Samaritan (to be by played by Arnold Schwarzenegger) who comes to their aid. It’s unknown how true that rumor is, but Taylor could either proceed with that story (if it is true), or throw out any current script development and start again from scratch.

Along with Thor: The Dark World, Taylor has directed the films Palookaville, The Emperor’s New Clothes and Kill the Poor, along with several episodes of Game of Thrones, The Sopranos, Mad Men and Homicide: Life on the Street.

What do you Bastards think? Excited to see what Taylor can do with Terminator? Are you even excited about another Terminator movie at all? Sound off below.
