Production is underway on Terminator: Genesis, but still no plot details

04.21.2014

Another major 2015 release has gone into production and we have just slightly more information on it that we do for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII. Namely, we know who will be starring in TERMINATOR: GENESIS.

The production announcement was made today via the official Skydance Productions Facebook page with the following comment.

::SKYNET preparation routines complete.
::Initialization sequence complete.
::Reboot initiating in 03m00s.

Production got underway on the fifth entry in the TERMINATOR franchise and the first one since RISE OF THE MACHINES to feature Arnold Schwarzenegger. This sequel/reboot of the James Cameron-created series is also being planned as the first in a new trilogy that will star GAME OF THRONES' Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor alongside Jason Clarke, Dayo Okeniji, J.K. Simmons, Sandrine Holt, Byung-hun Lee, and Jai Courtney. Revisiting the events of the original THE TERMINATOR, Alan Taylor's film will somehow sidestep some of the events of the existing franchise without ignoring the events. How that works in the screenplay remains to be seen.

Simply getting Arnold Schwarzenegger back into the mix should make TERMINATOR: GENESIS at least a curiosity. Alan Taylor proved he can handle some major action sequences with last year's THOR: THE DARK WORLD, so let's hope that translates to this film as well. TERMINATOR: GENESIS is slated for release on July 1, 2015.

Extra Tidbit: The R.I.P. SARAH on the slate is in remembrance of Sarah Elizabeth Jones, the assistant director killed during production on MIDNIGHT RIDER earlier this year.

Arnold is my favorite action star bar none.
But I really wish Terminator had stopped after the 1st one. There's just too many plot holes involved with time travel. In fact I wish Conan would have become a successful franchise, but the Richard Fleischer directed abomination Conan the Destroyer pretty much killed any chance of that.
I'll go see it to support Arnie. Fans really did Arnold wrong letting Sabotage fall off the charts so early.

Let me see ... A visit to the '50s helped the Terminator killed Sarah Connor's mom, so his dad had to marry someone else, resulting in a much different Sarah Connor but still cursed with the same burden of siring the future John Connor who will now look nothing like either Edward Furlong, Nick Stahl, that Sarah Connor Chronicles kid, nor Christian Bale. The Terminator was stranded in the past until present time, where his biological tissue aged and deteriorates over time, resulting in a much

The Terminator was stranded in the past until present time, where his biological tissue aged and deteriorates over time, resulting in a much older looking T-800. Oh, and he ran for governor of Califauhniah and won two consecutive periods while waiting.

As I said in a previous post. I like the idea of them revisiting past films and trying to change things through time travel, but only if they are going to use the original footage from the first films like BACK TO THE FUTRE did, and the new actors are only playing those characters in the past or future, because otherwise it would be so stupid to try and recreate Cameron's movies with new actors, but keep Schwarzenegger. It will also be really confusing to people.

I drove by the set yesterday and saw some cools stuff. They were filming a big scene at a car wash on Veterans highway in Metairie (suburb of New Orleans). First off, the car wash set was redressed to look very 1950s. I have a feeling that a portion of the movie is going to take place in the 50s. Maybe the T-800 is going back in time to the 50s to kill Sarah's parents. I saw Arnold in full terminator costume wearing the leather pants, leather jacket, and sunglasses too. Arnold also had green

Maybe the T-800 is going back in time to the 50s to kill Sarah's parents. I saw Arnold in full terminator costume wearing the leather pants, leather jacket, and sunglasses too. Arnold also had green dots all over his face. I'm not sure what the dots are for, but I bet they have something to do with making him look younger in post. Either that, or they're going to add battle damage to his face. Also, I think I saw saw Arnold's stunt double, because he was dressed exactly the same as Arnold, and that guy was holding a very old school looking shotgun. It was very similar to the one that Arnold has in the first half of T2. Anyway, I hope my drive-by set visit can help piece together the mystery plot.

I actually used to work in the New Orleans film industry, but that had nothing to do with me seeing the T5 set yesterday. I stumbled on the set completely by accident. I was on my way to get dinner and I drove by the set, so I decided to park and do some snooping.

Although, I do know a few people in the industry down here, maybe I should ask them for some set visits. Jurassic World, Fantastic Four, and Terminator Genesis are all filming in Baton Rouge and New Orleans this summer. I'd kill to see some of those sets up close.

How tall did Arnold look? He appears to have lost some considerable height as he got older

After getting 3 and Salvation, we can take comfort in thinking that it can only go up from here. I hope....

Glad that Slates for Sarah has become a thing. It's always important to remember that a lot of terrible accidents have happened in the making of entertainment and that it's important for everyone to be looked out for.

I'm going to give this one the benefit of a doubt. I enjoyed all the Terminator films, like the cast they gathered for this new sequel/reboot, and enjoyed what Taylor did with The Dark World. Hopefully he can create own storyline, Terminator storyline without disrespecting what Cameron accomplished before with his films.
