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.
