Alan Taylor in Negotiations to Direct TERMINATOR 5

     September 5, 2013


Word has it that director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World, Game of Thrones) is in negotiations to helm the Terminator reboot.  If a deal goes through, the longtime TV director could potentially have more massive features to add to his resume as the fifth installment in the Terminator franchise is expected to be the first film in a standalone trilogy.  No studio confirmation has come across as of yet and no new plot details are available on the rebooted film.  Star Arnold Schwarzenegger has said he’ll return in one fashion or another, and none-other than Dwayne Johnson has been rumored to appear as well.  Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions has Terminator slated for a June 26, 2015 release date.

    A good script. a good script. A good script.

    Call Jim Cameron for that

    • jack

      Cameron has said time and again that he’s completely done with terminator…there are other talented writers out there

    • Josh Ochoa

      Cameron is only good with a writing partner; Avaturd had terrible dialogue and was way too cliche

      • Jason Richards

        Yeah, lets forget all the other great movies he wrote because he wrote one film you didn’t like.

      • Josh Ochoa

        Titanic has a bad script too. T2, True Lies and Aliens he had a writing partner for and yes they’re good. Just saying he needs someone to bounce ideas off and keep him in check.

      • GunzOfNavarone

        That’s true, William Wisher put a lot into the T2 script yet James Cameron never acknowledged him.

    • GunzOfNavarone

      After the script he turned out for Avatar, I wouldn’t be turning to him for anything.

        Avatar is, a revolutionary movie, not by its “amazing” script , but by its innovative approach, which has managed to make people live magical moments at the edge of the daydream.

        Jim is a genius. he is always pushing the technical boundaries to their ultimate limits.
        He is also a genius when it comes to story telling. He makes you care about all his characters. the guy knows his job.

        strange days, Terminator, Aliens, Abyss, True Lies,

        I loved Avatar, even though the story wasn’t original. But at least he knows how to turn simple stories into magical moments.

        And if you didn’t watch avatar in 3D, then you didn’t see Avatar. Just saying.

      • Raptor Jesus

        Yeah, I remember when I was 12 years old. Everything was very exciting.

      • tarek

        And now you are 70, and you find everything bland…I pity you

  • axalon

    Hopefully Dwayne Johnson will appear in this, he’s really the only capable actor around whose physique can closely match Arnold’s.

  • Jamesy

    Interesting choice, lock the script first…script script script then see what the director can do with it.

  • what@

    I am NOT Interested in a REMAKE of Terminator. NO!

    Terminator 5, I would be though.

    I wish Cameron would get involved, but pretty sure he won’t. But just another reason for me to take the summer of 2015 completely off.

  • Raptor Jesus

    Reboot? Prequel? Sequel? Reimagining? WTF are they doing here?
