'Game Of Thrones' director Alan Taylor in talks to reboot 'Terminator'

Arnold Schwarzenegger has said 'I'll be back' for the fifth movie, which is due in June 2015

Alan Taylor, director of several Game Of Thrones episodes and next month's Thor: The Dark World, is set to take on the new Terminator movie.

According to Variety, Taylor is "in talks" to direct the reboot, which has been given a release date of June 26, 2015.

Paramount Pictures announced the reboot in June and and revealed that it will be the first in a new stand-alone trilogy of Terminator movies. The reboot has a script by Laela Kalogrodis (Shutter Island and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) though no plot details are known at the moment.

Paramount has yet to confirm what role - if any - Arnold Schwarzenegger will play in the film though the actor has said on several occasions this year: "I'll be back."

Schwarzenegger originated the iconic role in 1984's Terminator and returned for 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day and 2003's Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines. A fourth instalment, Terminator Salvation, followed in 2009 without Schwarzenegger, who was then serving as Governor of California.
