Even 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.
