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.
