Paramount shelves Terminator sequel and replaces it with Baywatch reboot
Paramount has postponed indefinitely plans for a sequel to Terminator: Genisys and has replaced it in its sequel with the Baywatch reboot.
Although Terminator: Genisys performed respectably at the box office, the studio has now removed a planned sequel in 2017 from its planned releases and put no other release date in its place.
The sequel's spot on May 19th in 2017 has been taken by the big-budget of 1990's megahit TV show Baywatch, which will star Dwayne Johnson, Alexandra Daddario and Zac Efron.
The movie adaptation of Baywatch has been in development for a number of years now, but appears to be finally coming together for a shoot in February.
Johnson will play a older lifeguard who is a stickler for the rules who is forced to team up with a hotheaded young recruit (Efron) in order to save their beach from environmental destruction at the hands of an oil tycoon.
Seth Gordon, director of Horrible Bosses and Identity Thief, will direct the movie which has a script from Freddy Vs Jason writing duo Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.
