According to Variety Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor is in talks to direct the next Terminator movie for Skydance Productions, Paramount and Annapurna Pictures.
Rian Johnson (Looper) and Denis Villeneuve (Prisoners) were also said to have been in the mix, but Alan Taylor is now in negotiations. Thor: The Dark World doesn’t open till October/November but it’s a positive sign if Taylor is being snapped up for big projects already.
Arnold Schwarzenegger has already confirmed that he’ll be starring in the film and shooting will begin early next year. No plot details have been released, but the script is being written by Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) and Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island).
A June 26, 2015 release date is being planned, and it is expected to be the first in a new trilogy.
