Is The Fifth Terminator Film Heading To Paramount?


It is being reported by The Wrap that Paramount is currently in negotiations to secure the distribution rights for a fifth Terminator film. The film is being produced by Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures as well as David Ellison’s Skydance Productions.

Megan Ellison paid more than $20 million in 2011 to acquire the rights for a new Terminator film. However, she must make a film by 2019 before the rights revert back to the creator of the franchise, James Cameron.

Her brother David is the man responsible for such films as Star Trek, Mission: Impossible, and the upcoming World War Z.

The last news that The Wrap reports being released was that Laeta Kalogridis (Avatar) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) were writing the script for the fifth film.

    This series just seems done to death and uninteresting at this point. That last one with Bale was decent, but its just more of the same.

    Please no more terminator. Judgement day was perfect. Then t:3 came along with cartoony violence, lame jokes and tones of CGI. Then salvation happened- literally, the moment that T:4 finished. Let the franchise rest please.
