Production Starts On "Terminator: Genesis"

Production has now started on director Alan Taylor's new "Terminator" movie "Terminator: Genesis", the first feature in a new stand-alone "Terminator" trilogy:

"The way that the character is written, it's a machine underneath," actor Schwarzenegger said about returning to the franchise. 

"It's this metal skeleton. But above that is human flesh. And the Terminator's flesh ages, just like any other human being's flesh. Maybe not as fast. But it definitely ages."

"Terminator deals a lot with time travel, so there will be a younger T-800."  

"And then what that model does later on when it gets reprogrammed, and who gets ahold of him. So it will be all kinds of interesting twists in the movie..." 

Terminator: Genesis opens June 26, 2015 in a stand-alone trilogy, acknowledging the films of director James Cameron, creator of the 'Terminator' universe with a linking story arc, starring Schwarzenegger, "Game Of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke as freedom fighter 'Sarah Connor' and Jason Clarke ("Zero Dark Thirty") as 'John Connor', for director Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World"). 

"The Terminator" released in 1984, was inspired by themes and premises by science fiction author Harlan Ellison, then scripted by James Cameron and Gale Anne Hurd, with direction by Cameron.

In the first film, The 'Terminator' is sent back in time from the year 2029 to 1984 to kill 'Sarah Connor' (Linda Hamilton). 

'Kyle Reese' (
Michael Biehn), a soldier from the future, is sent back in time to protect Sarah, so that her unborn son can lead the future resistance forces.

Three sequels were produced including "Terminator 2: Judgment Day" (1991), "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" (2003), and "Terminator Salvation" (2009).

The TV series spin-off, "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" aired in 2008.

In 2008, "The Terminator" was selected by the Library of Congress for preservation in the United States National Film Registry, being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant."
