First Terminator: Genesis Plot Details Revealed; Schwarzenegger Gives Script Two Thumbs UpEven though it’s headed our way in a little over a year, we still know next to nothing about Terminator: Genesis, the fifth installment in the storied franchise. Today some beans have been spilled. Read on!

First, MovieHole reports that they’ve learned from a reputable source that the film is being dubbed a fresh reboot but that it will also revisit iconic moments from the first two Terminator films. So, essentially, it’s looking like it’s going to be a reboot that’s tailor-made for fans of the originals, which sounds like music to our ears.

The film will take us back and forward between the future, 1984 (The Terminator), 1991 (Terminator 2 : Judgement Day) and other important and influential time periods in the life of the Connor family. Iconic scenes, including the Terminator’s arrival on Earth, will be given a fresh new makeover, making the film both a reboot and its own movie.

The Arnold Fans also reports that Arnold Schwarzenegger is very happy with the Terminator: Genesis script and is excited to reprise one of his most memorable roles. “The movie preparation is going well. The script is fantastic so I’m really looking forward to this film,” says Arnie.

The four-month shoot is set to begin in April, with the film being primarily shot in New Orleans. A July 2015 release is planned at this time.

Jai Courtney will play Kyle Reese alongside Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke’s John Connor.

Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with Paramount with David Ellison producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script, and Alan Taylor will direct.

    Forgive me if Arh-nold’s seal of approval doesn’t inspire confidence in the film. Remember, this is the guy going around porking cleaning women, his bar isn’t exactly high.

      He’s also the guy who did this amazing AMA on reddit a month or so ago.

      In that same AMA, when asked out of all the things he’s famous for what he was most proud of and what he was least proud of he said:

      “I’m most proud that I was smart enough to immigrate to the greatest country in the world where I could accomplish all of my dreams.
      I’m least proud of the mistakes I made that caused my family pain and split us up.”

      That wasn’t a loaded question, and he could have easily said Junior. But he didn’t. He was candid, and honest.

      He made some mistakes, but he’s doing what he can to make right.

      Not to mention his personal life has no real baring on his career.

      Arnold’s seal of approval has got my support. Also The Last Stand and Escape Plan were awesome.

        For all the sarcastic, smarmy comments you give I’m surprised you can’t see a joke when you see one. Of course his private life means nothing, but nothing you say can change the fact the Terminator series needs to die.

        And Escape Plan and Last Stand sucked. Phfft.

        • The Buz

          Aren’t jokes supposed to be funny though? 😛

          Seriously though, I felt the need to comment because whatever your opinion may be about the Terminator series, Arnies personal life should have no baring on it.

          But I agree with you, the Terminator series does need to die.

          Escape Plan and Last Stand are awesome though. Last Stand was better, but I enjoyed the hell out of Escape plan.

      • Debi Moore

        Agree 100%! Plus, if we stopped watching movies or listening to music or admiring art created by people who cheated on their spouses or did anything else we might not “approve” of, there’d be next to nothing to watch or listen to or look at!

        • The Buz

          Honestly, the older Arnold gets the more and more I love him.

          Read that AMA Debi, he seems like such a fun engaging guy. He regularly hangs out at and gives advice to people starting work out regiments.

          • Debi Moore

            Will do!

  • LSD Zombie

    A Terminator Greatest Hits Collection? No thanks.

  • Rottenjesus

    This does not exactly make me optimistic about this project.

    • aliensharkboy

      Fuck reboots?

      • Rottenjesus

        I was trying not to be “that guy” but sure why not?

        • aliensharkboy

          FUCK REBOOTS!
