The upcoming TERMINATOR flick which will be directed by "Game of Thrones" and THOR: THE DARK WORLD helmer Alan Taylor has just gotten a new release date. Today, word has come in that Paramount Pictures will release the new TERMINATOR film on Wednesday, July 1, 2015. The new date puts TERMINATOR up against 20th Century Fox's INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 and a still-untitled Illumination Entertainment animated project—so it's going to be pretty damn crowded, but I can't imagine TERMINATOR being too worried when it comes to box-office numbers. We are still unsure if we'll be seeing the big man himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, in the new film, but he has said in past interviews that he will be back!
The first in a stand-alone trilogy, TERMINATOR will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (SHUTTER ISLAND) and Patrick Lussier (DRIVE ANGRY) are attached to write the screenplay.
