Paramount in Talks to Distribute Next TERMINATOR Film

     June 11, 2013

Moves are being made with regards to the next Terminator film.  If you’ll recall, the rights to the franchise were put up for auction in 2011, at which point Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures picked up the rights to produce the next installment in the series.  Very little movement has been made since that time, but Megan’s brother David Ellison (True Grit, Star Trek Into Darkness) singed on to be the financial and creative partner on the project via his Skydance Productions banner last December, and the Ellison siblings tapped Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) to start working on a script for Terminator 5 earlier this year.

Now The Wrap reports that Paramount Pictures is in talks to acquire distribution rights to the next Terminator pic, which makes perfect sense given that Skydance has a strong partnership with Paramount.  Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to return for the next film, and with distribution nearly settled, we should start seeing firm movement towards production on Terminator 5 very soon.
