Alan Taylor’s Terminator Reboot Moves to July 1, 2015

Following recent word that “Game of Thrones” and Thor: The Dark World helmer Alan Taylor is set to direct the Terminator reboot, Paramount Pictures, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures have shifted the film’s release date by one week. Originally planned to hit theaters on June 26, 2015, the film will now grace the big screen on July 1, 2015.

The first in a stand-alone trilogy, Terminator will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are attached to write the screenplay.

The new date puts Terminator up against 20th Century Fox’s Independence Day 2 and a still-untitled Illumination Entertainment animated film.
