The Upcoming Terminator Reboot Plans Television Series Tie-in

The action franchise heading back the big screen in 2015, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures are now looking at bringing Terminator to television as well. The Hollywood Reporter today brings word that a new series is in development that will tie into the Alan Taylor film. Ashley Miller and Zack Stentz, the pair behind X-Men: First Class and Thor, will provide the script for the pilot.

The franchise was previously brought to television as “Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles” (which also featured script work by Miller and Stentz). The new series is said to split from the timeline of James Cameron’s 1984 original in a way that will allow it to connect back to the upcoming big screen reboot.

Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance will produce the series alongside Dana Goldberg and Marcy Ross. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will serve as executive producers.

The new Terminator movie is scheduled for a July 1, 2015 release.
