Movies Alan Taylor In Talks To Direct TERMINATOR 5 written by Sean Gerber September 6, 2013 If, as expected, Thor makes it out of THE DARK WORLD alive, he’ll be kept busy when he rejoins The Avengers in AGE OF ULTRON. Now, the director of the THOR sequel, Alan Taylor, may have found his next adventure. Variety reports Taylor is in talks to direct the fifth installment of the TERMINATOR franchise. In light of the occasional, inexplicable comments that THOR: THE DARK WORLD is in some kind of trouble, consider this a vote of confidence in what Taylor has accomplished in his first venture into franchise filmmaking. Paramount Pictures is very eager to resurrect the cybernetic franchise after it stalled with TERMINATOR: SALVATION in 2009. Paramount has more to gain from TERMINATOR since acquiring Warner Bros. Pictures’ share of the pie as part of the deal that allowed WB to say in the Christopher Nolan business for INTERSTELLAR. It is unlikely that Paramount would have much faith in Taylor unless the studio was hearing good things about THOR: TDW. Typically, Marvel is not known for brining directors back to direct sequels, as Jon Favreau (IRON MAN) and Joss Whedon (MARVEL’S THE AVENGERS) have proven to be exceptions, not the rule. With that in mind, it is wise for Taylor to lineup another big franchise for a major studio and continue flexing his directorial muscle.
