ALAN Taylor is being lined up to direct the next instalment in The Terminator franchise.

According to sources quoted by Variety, the man behind several Game of Thrones episodes and the upcoming Thor: The Dark World is in talks to helm the reboot.

As yet, plot details have not been revealed other than to say that the new film is being envisaged as the first in a stand alone trilogy.

It is still unknown what part Arnold Schwarzenegger will play even though the actor has said in past interviews that he will be back.

Taylor is believed to have beaten off stiff competition from several other high-profile names, including Ang Lee and Looper‘s Rian Johnson.

The as-yet untitled Terminator film is currently scheduled for a June 26, 2015 release in the US, pitting it against the new Star Wars film, the Avengers sequel and Batman vs Superman.
