Are you ready for it? Another pounding by the machines? Well, get ready for another Terminator series to hit our TV screens, after seeing Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles a few years back.

The producers that are behind the brand new trilogy are working on a series that will extend the story of the movie that is currently in development.

It has not been said as to what storylines they will use, but it has been mentioned that it will follow a plot moment from James Cameron’s 1984 original. Instead of carrying along the same lines though, they will be throwing it in a completely different direction altogether.

Plans are being made as well, so that the series will intertwine with the new movie(s) at different points.

For a while now, we have been wondering whether Arnold Schwarzenegger would be returning to the franchise at all, after leaving us to become the governor of California and having to be made from computer generated imagery in the last movie.

The news on the series at the moment is that Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor and the producers are narrowing in on an actress to play Sarah Connor.

After reports that Michael Bay “apologised” for elements of Transformers, he has bit back with a statement to say that he did not apologise.

On his official blog, Bay has says, “No I did not ‘apologise’ for any of the Transformers movies… I did not say I shot the last three movies ‘less cool’ than the new fourth instalment.”
“I was talking specifically about camera style and tone, of the first movie compared to how I shot the new instalment with a very big scale, cinematic style.”
“I was very specific in saying the first Transformers was shot in a ‘generic suburbia’ area, not trying to be cool with any cinematic flashes. I wanted it to feel like this could happen in any backyard in the United States.”
Let’s hope that Transformers: Age Of Extinction is as good as he says it is.
