New, 28 comments

It was announced earlier this year that a new trilogy of Terminator films were on their way, but just who was going to be behind the camera had been up in the air. Variety is now reporting that Alan Taylor is in negotiations to direct the first film in the new series. If you're not familiar with Taylor's name, you certainly know his work. The filmmaker has an extensive history in television, having directed episodes of The Sopranos, Mad Men, and Game of Thrones, and also directed the upcoming Thor: The Dark World.

While plot details are thin at the moment, the script for the first new film was written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry). Paramount is producing alongside Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures, and according to Variety's report the project had also looked at directors Ang Lee and Rian Johnson before deciding upon Taylor. The untitled Terminator film is currently scheduled for release on June 26, 2015.
