New 'Terminator' TV Series in the Works With 'X-Men' Writers
Terminator may be heading back to the small screen. A new TV series based on the James Cameron-created franchise is currently being developed by Skydance Prods. and Annapurna Pictures.
The television project will be written and executive produced by Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller, who wrote superhero-themed feature films "X-Men: First Class" and "Thor". Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will also serve as executive producers.
The new series will follow a critical moment from the original 1984 "Terminator" movie, but will take it in a completely different direction. Other details are still kept under wraps, but the small-screen version is expected to have intersecting narratives with the upcoming film trilogy which is also in the works.
Paramount, Skydance and Annapurna team up for the rebooted trilogy, with the first film slated for a July 2015 release. Kalogridis and Lussier will write the movie. No official cast is announced for the movie yet, but Tom Hardy was said circling the role of John Connor.
Emilia Clarke, Brie Larson and Margot Robbie were rumored eying the role of John's mother Sarah, while Garrett Hedlund, Taylor Kitsch and Nicholas Hoult were mentioned as the potential actors to play young Kyle Reese, who will father John.
The sci-fi film franchise, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger as the title character, has spawned a TV spin-off, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles", which aired in 2008-2009. Lena Headey and Thomas Dekker starred as Sarah and John Connor respectively.
