While its creative team is mostly in place, with Deadpool's Tim Miller directing and franchise overlord James Cameron on producer duty, the script for the latest expansion of the Terminator universe has been more in flux. Now the team has hired Captain Phillips and Hunger Games writer Billy Ray to do a pass on it.

Cameron and Miller are planning for the new movie to sidestep all the various movies and TV series produced after the original and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, and want to re-invent the story.

Film series veterans Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton are returning in front of the camera, and the focus will be on a young female hero as the new centrepiece of the series. While the first versions of the screenplay were produced by a writers' room that included Josh Friedman and David Goyer (based from a story by Cameron), Ray will be in charge of getting it in shape.

The search is on for the fresh faces to anchor the new movies, and the film is targeting a July 2019 release.
