Writers Announced For Next Terminator Film

Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures (the new owners of the rights to the Terminator franchise) have revealed that Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will script the next Terminator film, reports Deadline.

Kalogridis’s credits include Avatar, Shutter Island and Alexander while Lussier scripted Wes Craven’s Dracula and My Bloody Valentine.

Annapura Pictures, run by Megan Ellison, won the bidding rights to the Terminator franchise a year and a half ago. Then at the end of last year it was announced that Annapura had forged a deal with Skydance Productions, the company behind such films as Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and Jack Reacher, which happens to be owned by David Ellison, Megan’s brother.
