Alan Taylor in Talks to Direct TERMINATOR 5

We've known for months now, through the passionate fight of Megan Ellison and Annapurna Pictures, that a new "Terminator" film was on the way. Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis have been penning the script and the metal machine himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger, is attached to star in an unspecified role. Now it appears that a director has also been eyed.

Alan Taylor, who is helming the upcoming anticipated sequel "Thor: The Dark World", is the frontrunner to direct the fifth installment. Prior to becoming part of the Marvel family, he is best known for his work on the hit HBO show "Game of Thrones". He feels like a good fit as he has proven he is good with rich and complex worlds, and the "Terminator" world has always been known for its gritty and dark tone and cool visuals.

The movie will be the first of a standalone trilogy, and we anticipate the title to be changing as well to give it an independent feel from the rest of the franchise. While no official plot details have been confirmed, it was revealed a few months ago that the story might follow Sarah Connor's parents, and that Schwarzenegger is a human assigned to protect them in the 1940s and '50s. The terminators were then created from his vision, since he did such an incredible job protecting the family.

Do you think Taylor is a good fit? Let us know in the comments section below!

"Terminator 5" will hit AMC Theatres on June 26th, 2015.

    I see one that's great enough to stand on his own in a flick and I see two generic Super Heroes below him played by descent actors that will suck of no fault of their own. DC Entertainment and Zack piss off Snyder have destroyed any chance of a good Superman flick. It's generic and badly delivered to screen. What a tragedy to finally get to see the big 3 on screen after all these years only to watch them in piss poor dark generic looking outfits and rewritten backgrounds. FAILURE! DC Entertainment needs to pull their heads out of their asses and give us something good besides Dark Knight and Batman. To my point GO MARVEL!!!!!! May we all be laughing at DC Comics in the end for playing this awful prank on the true fans.

    Marvel has nothing to worry about. DC Entertainment has already killed Superman in this so called "Man of Steel" series of movies. Does anyone recall how the first one sucked? That movie in no way other then title had the tone of Superman. DC has shot themselves in the foot far before the release date against Marvel that knows how to build on charactors, respect them, and the fans. Before all this bull crap with revamping I was 100% behind DC Comics. They have proved one bad film over another that Batman is the only one in the JLA they can get right. This knockoff Superman is and was terrible! Wonder Woman will be just as bad or worse being that DC Comics likes to screw around with her origin and costume the most out of any DC charactor since creation. They simply just don't know what the heck they are doing or how to stay true to the roots of these heroes who have endured for 70 plus years. MOS2 may make it at the box office but mark my words it will not in any way be because it's a great flick. Just the hopefuls having to justify to themselves right and wrongs of the contents. It will suck! Line up for Captain America 3 and catch this flick in the red box.

    I've got a Baby Ruth in my coat pocket somewhere... just waiting to eat it. Maybe I'll put in a blender on puree.
