Paramount Unveils Plans for New 'Terminator' Trilogy CBS News

After "Terminator" star Arnold Schwarzenegger famously vowed that he would be back, Paramount has announced that the "Terminator" franchise will indeed be back.

CBS News reports: "The franchise is getting a reboot, Paramount announced Thursday, with three new films set to roll out soon. There's no official word on whether Arnold Schwarzenegger, 65, will resume the title role, but according to the Los Angeles Times, insiders say the actor is expected to be involved in the films in some way."

The original "Terminator," released in 1984, and its sequels have made more than $1 billion in box office receipts, the piece notes. The movies star Schwarzenegger as a virtually indestructible robot assassin.

"The studio says it will release the new 'Terminator' in July 2015, more than three decades after 'The Terminator' hit the big screen," the story reports. "It's being produced by Annapurna Pictures, which is also behind 2013's 'Zero Dark Thirty.'"
