created 12/06/2013 - 2:39pm
Paramount is kicking off a new Terminator franchise in 2015, and now it's being reported a new TV series is in development which will connect to the movies.
The producers behind the new Terminator franchise are also behind the new TV show, which follows Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles that ended four years ago.
It's said that both the new movie and TV show will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984), but each will go in a different direction and eventually will intersect with each other in surprising and dramatic ways (via THR).
Thor and X-Men: First Class writers Zack Stentz and Ashley Miller will write and executive produce the new Terminator TV series.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is said to be back for the new Terminator movie franchise with Alan Taylor (Thor 2) on board to direct. It's not stated if Schwarzenegger will be involved with the TV series.
Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larson are said to be up for the role of Sarah Connors in the new Terminator movie that has a July 1, 2015 release.
