Variety had an exclusive story that Thor: The Dark World and Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor is talks to helm a Terminator film.
“Sources tell Variety that Taylor is in talks to direct the rebooted “Terminator” film for Skydance Productions, Paramount and Annapurna Pictures. All the studios and reps had no comment on the news”.
The odd part of the story is that this would not be a continuation of the Terminator franchise but a “stand alone” story. There was no news if Arnold Schwarzenegger would be attached to this project. Though Arnold has said he will be back.
It seems like a step in the right direction. Thor: The Dark World really is Taylor's trial under fire for a big cinematic release.
THOR: THE DARK WORLD (in Digital 3D and RealD) arrives November 8, 2013.
