'Terminator 5' Official Title Revealed?

The Terminator franchise has been dormant since 2009, but that will change in a big way in 2015.

Terminator Salvation was intended to kickoff a new film trilogy set in the aftermath of Judgement Day (the date when A.I. Skynet gained self-awareness and declared war on humanity), but director McG's installment - certainly not a total bomb with a $371 million worldwide take on a $200 million budget - just didn't get enough love from the fanbase for distributor Warner Bros. to justify continuing that movie thread, four years ago.

Annapurna Pictures (American Hustle, Her) currently owns the Terminator rights and intends to reboot the series on the big screen - with Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his iconic role and Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) directing - in addition to launching a new television series, which shall have direct ties with the cinematic reboot in the hope of avoiding introducing continuity discrepancies (something that happened with the Sarah Connor Chronicles TV show that aired from 2008-09 and the previous Terminator movies).

Taylor's reboot may have an official title, going by this Production Weekly Tweet:
