However it turns out, good, bad or indifferent, we all know that Star Wars is going to be the big genre flick to see in 2015. Right now, casting is also coming down to the wire on another genre blockbuster coming in the summer of ’15, Terminator Genesis, which will be a prequel.
The Terminator prequel, which is titled Terminator Genesis, is coming together pretty quickly for a July 1, 2015 release date. Lately there’s been a lot of speculation as to who will play the two most important roles, John and Sarah Connor, and at least one of those roles has finally been filled…
Terminator 5 is currently being scheduled for a July 1, 2015 opening, and the big casting decisions of course will revolve around who will play John and Sarah Connor. Several big names have been mentioned to play Sarah, and the producers would love Tom Hardy to play John. But now the news has hit that another actor who’s a little more under the radar may get the Connor role.
The big screen adaptation of World of Warcraft and Terminator 5 are on the fast track to get made, and casting for both movies is coming together fast. Both were set to come out in 2015, but now World of Warcraft has moved to early 2016 to get out of the way of Star Wars, as any movie would.
When we heard the news that Megan and David Ellison, who are the kids of Oracle founder Larry Ellison, had bought the right to The Terminator, we weren’t sure if the movie would ever get the green light. The rights deal lasts until 2018, so Megan and David have to get the movie made by that point before The Terminator slips out of their hands. This apparently won’t happen because it looks like Terminator 5 is indeed up and running, and casting has already begun.
It may not be the smartest idea in Hollywood, but at least it’s a little smarter than Batman Vs Superman. Yes, it looks like another Terminator movie is indeed moving forward, and now it’s moving up to one of the biggest blockbuster periods of the year: Fourth of July weekend.
Within the next few years, we may actually have a new Terminator film because Larry Ellison’s kids, Megan and David, currently own the rights to the character. They have until 2018 to get another Terminator film made before the rights lapse, and current plans have a new movie in the works for a June 26, 2015 release at Paramount. (If The Terminator does indeed get rebooted, it will make 2015 a very packed genre year with Avengers 2, Star Wars, and Batman Vs Superman.)
