Since acquiring The Terminator franchise, Paramount has been firing on all cylinders to get everyone’s favorite human-killing robot moving again. With their foot slammed against the pedal, we now have a release date in sight. Read on for details.
From the Press Release
Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures, and Paramount Pictures have jointly announced they will partner on a rebooted “TERMINATOR” movie, to be released by Paramount Pictures on June 26, 2015.
The first in a stand-alone trilogy, “TERMINATOR” will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are attached to write the screenplay.
Launched in 1984 with star Arnold Schwarzenegger as the title character, “TERMINATOR” spanned three subsequent films, which have earned over $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
David Ellison most recently executive produced, along with his partners at Paramount, World War Z, Star Trek Into Darkness, G.I. Joe: Retaliation, and Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol. A fifth installment of the Mission: Impossible franchise is in active development, along with a 3rd film in the G.I. Joe franchise, among other films.
Megan Ellison most recently produced the Academy Award®-nominated Zero Dark Thirty and The Master and executive produced Spring Breakers via her Annapurna Pictures banner and has David O. Russell’s American Hustle, Spike Jonze’s Her, and Bennett Miller’s Foxcatcher set for release later this year.
