Paramount Pictures has reportedly acquired the rights to distribute “Terminator 5” (T5) and that production may begin next year. The script had numerous rewrites, the latest coming from Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to star. At one point Justin Lin was attached to direct, but he dropped out to helm “Fast and Furious 6”. Maybe he can come back? It would make sense as to why he didn’t want to do FF 7. “Terminator Salvation” the last Terminator film to be released, starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington.

“Terminator Salvation”, which starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington disappointed a lot of fans. But a new “Terminator” film is moving forward and it now has screenwriters…one should get you excited and one should have you worried. Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis are penning the script. The good news is the latter did work on “Shutter Island”. The bad news is the former did work on “Drive Angry” and “My Bloody Valentine 3D”.

This is a piece of news that I really hope leads to nothing. But, the LA Times is reporting that Warner Brothers is in the very early stages of exploring a possibility of making a prequel to “The Shining”. Yes, that one. The classic Stephen King novel turned into a classic film from director Stanley Kubrick and starring Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Scatman Crothers and Danny Lloyd. According to the report, writer/producer Laeta Kalogridis (“Shutter Island”, “Avatar”) and her partners Bradley Fischer and James Vanderbilt would produce the new film.

Please let this just pass. Please. WB wouldn’t do something like this would they? I mean, that’d be like Hollywood making a sequel to “Raging Bull” without Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro right? Oh, boy. We’re in trouble.
