We are one step closer to more Terminator movies. Last month we learned that Megan Ellison’s brother, David Ellison, had come aboard the project to co-produce the next installment of the franchise through his Skydance Pictures banner alongside Megan’s Annapurna Pictures, and now the producers have tapped a couple of writers to start work on the script. Deadline reports that Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier will write the script for the new Terminator film, though further details are being kept under wraps.

Kalogridis is best known for Shutter Island and Alexander. Lussier, was responsible for writing 2011’s Drive Angry and received a “story by” credit on Dracula 2000, which he also directed. Megan Ellison has confirmed that it will indeed be rated R. Hopefully this is just the beginning of Terminator news.
