Next Summer the classic Terminator franchise, which started with James Cameron’s The Terminator back in 1984, will see a new feature-length release, called Terminator: Genesis. It is the fifth installment in the franchise, and will see the return of Arnold Schwarzenegger as the lead man (read: machine) in a soft reboot of the franchise.
Arnie will star alongside Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard), Matt Smith (Doctor Who), and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash). The movie will be a sort of “reimagining” of the first film, and will be directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World).
Although not much has been revealed regarding the film’s plot, exact character details or the timeline it will follow, a few recent set photos (see below) have been posted online. The only other grounded piece of information about the new Terminator is its title.
However, according to a new report from Bleeding Cool, it appears Terminator: Genesis might not even be the film’s title. The site’s sources have revealed that the movie will end up being titled simply Terminator, rather than having a subtitle. The name change seems to push the idea of being more reboot than sequel, but is not official at this time.
With San Diego Comic Con coming up in a few weeks, it’s very possible that Paramount will offer up a few new details about the movie. Until then, stay tuned for more news about Terminator, and see it in theaters on July 1st, 2015, directed by Alan Taylor.
