Even if audiences didn’t flock to see Arnold Schwarzenegger in The Last Stand, they might be a lot more interested to see Schwarzenegger re-team with the guy who helped define him as an action star.

Paramount, Skydance and Annapurna Pictures have just announced that Terminator 5, potentially starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, will be released June 26, 2015. It’s being framed as the first film in a new trilogy.
The press release refers to the film as a “reboot” and says the trilogy will “stand alone” from the first four films. That suggests, unlike what we’d heard in the past, this new film won’t be in the same timeline as the James Cameron classics, or the less classic Jonathan Mostow and McG films.
