We reported yesterday that Paramount Pictures will distribute the sequel, with Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures and David Ellison's Skydance Productions providing the financing.

Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) and Laeta Kalogridis (White House Down) are writing the screenplay, and, according to Arnold Schwarzenegger, the script is nearly complete. The actor revealed that he expects to receive the script for Terminator 5, and the Twins sequel Triplets, in the next few weeks.
