Terminator 5 Begins Filming, Considers Name Change

Terminator Genesis - Slates for Sarah
Terminator: Genesis (aka Terminator 5) has begun filming in New Orleans under the direction of Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World alum Alan Taylor. In the official press release from Paramount, the title Terminator: Genesis is not used. Peter Sciretta of /Film rightly points out that the production may be considering a name change. Which wouldn’t be something out of the ordinary: films regularly re-evaluate their choice of title leading up to the release of a film, responding to test screenings and the advice of marketing professionals.

Terminator: Genesis stars Arnold Schwarzeneggar as the titular cybernetic organism, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as John Connor, Jason Clarke, JK Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung Hun Lee.

The photo of the first-day slate above is a tribute to Sarah Jones, a film professional who was tragically killed on the set of Midnight Rider in Georgia. Film and television shows have been dedicating their slates to raise awareness for safety on set. You can follow the campaign at www.slatesforsarah.org.

After a lengthy shoot in New Orleans, the film’s release date is July 1, 2015.
