Some more release schedule changes are being announced as Paramount has decided to take their in development sequel to last summer’s Terminator Genisys off their calendar. The film had been scheduled for a May 19, 2017 release, one week before the recently moved Star Wars: Episode: VIII was original scheduled to hit theaters.
Into the recently vacated May 19th spot, Paramount is dropping in their remake of Baywatch which is set to star Dwayne Johnson.
Even with Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the franchise in his iconic role as the robotic killer from the future, Terminator: Genisys only cleared $440.6 million at the worldwide box office , with just an anemic $90 million at US theaters.
Although the studio has not outright announced the cancellation of the project, it can not be a good sign. Ten months before the release of Terminator Genisys, the studio had announced plans for two sequels, staking out the May 2017 date as well as a date June 29, 2018 for the third film. To date, though, the studio has not announced any creative personnel attached to the sequels.
