Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures have hired Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier to work on the new 'Terminator' film
Scriptwriters have been hired for a new 'Terminator' movie.
Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures have taken on Laeta Kalogridis - a friend of 'Terminator' creator James Cameron - and Patrick Lussier to pen the next installment in the sci-fi adventure series, deadline reports.
The pair were commissioned by Skydance's David Ellison to write an original script, based on an idea initiated by Skydance.
Though the movie series' original star Arnold Schwarzenegger's involvement hasn't been confirmed, it was recently claimed he had teamed up with director Justin Lin ('Fast Five') to plan the storyline for 'Terminator 5' which will allegedly take place in a parallel timeline.
The former Governor of California previously admitted he would like to revisit some of his old action film classics, including 'Terminator', 'Twins' and 'True Lies'.
Arnold paid homage to his infamous 'Terminator' line and said acting is where his passion lies, especially since the salary is infinitely better than that of a politician.
He joked: "I didn't take a penny of my salary during my terms. After all, it was petty cash compared to what you make in the movies."
He added: "Thank you all for coming. I'll be back."
