The 5th installment in the Terminator movie franchise seems to be moving along nicely, with the most recent news being Paramount entering talks in order to snag the distribution rights for the movie. Before that, progress has been slow, or quiet. Or both. At least, since Skydance signed on to become partners with production company Annapurna last December.
On the script side, Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier are currently doing their part writing a script. Should Paramount’s deal go through, we may see an announcement regarding the assigned director. The last name attached to the director’s chair was Justin Lin, but his Fast & Furious gig forced him to bow out of the project. However, now that Lin has finished his Fast & Furious commitments and with Terminator 5 being delayed, there is a big chance that he’ll return to the project.
