Is Terminator: Genesis the Title of the Upcoming Reboot?

Aside from those pesky rumors that Terminator 5 will focus on a young Sarah Connor, with both Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson vying for the role in a story that will change the events seen in the original 1984 The Terminator, as the machine arrives in the past to hunt her down before she becomes pregnant, not much is known about this upcoming reboot from Annapurna Pictures and Paramount.

Today, the usually reliable Production Weekly sent out the following Tweet, which confirms that the production offices for the Alan Taylor directed reboot are up and running, and that they have what may be the official title: Terminator: Genesis.

None of this has been confirmed by the studio just yet. The director himself has yet to be officially confirmed by Paramount or Annapurna. It is known that this will kick off a new trilogy that will reinvent the original Quadrilogy. Arnold Schwarzenegger is returning as The Terminator, but its not known in what capacity, or how he will affect the storyline this time out.

What do you think of that new title? Genesis means 'origin' or the beginning. Are we getting a straight up origin story of some sort? Is that necessary at this point? Why are they taking us all the way back to square one? Is that what you, as a fan, want to see?

Terminator Genisys comes to theaters July 1st, 2015 and stars Emilia Clarke, J.K. Simmons, Jai Courtney, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Matt Smith, Jason Clarke, Byung-hun Lee, Douglas Smith. The film is directed by Alan Taylor.

    I agree was a stupid ending well at least the ending b4 the end, lol , it was all kinda like "ok cool this may actually lead to something new" but then we en up finding "NOTHING"
    As realistic as that may sound, i think it should of gone at least 15 more mins and we actually find clues. or a much better ending.
    Like every1 else, i agree 1-2 were the best, while 3 was a nice lil "upgrade" as far as special f/xs but story/direction was so pointless.. then 4 was a whole diff story. almost to the point that it didnt seem like a terminator film at all.

    A reboot? why bother, a prequel, why bother? another TERMINATOR film, why bother? Arnold, why bother, i liked the idea McG pitched about seeing a possible army lieutenant being the image of the TERMINATOR, but meh passed giving a sh*t tbh

    @therealGoku don't get me wrong, I don't hate the guy, I just don't want him back in certain films. Though I do wonder about this film at times, I just don't want it to fail like the last one.

    I respect everyone opinion but there's no terminator without Arnold. I say write the story where he's old and human and the rock is the terminator lol @evilwhitemale@instead8909

    Another idea that could work if done right, could be that Arnold is...Kyle Reese. rather than play the "bad guy" he could play the good guy who comes to save sarah as seen in the first film.

    As much as i would like another terminator-film i just rather that they pull the plugs on this and reboot the whole thing with a much better direction, twist, younger cast, and just give us a new film every 2 yrs rather than every 4-5 yrs,
    If Arnold wants to return, let him have a small role, maybe be somebody's dad like sarahs or something, but the new terminator will be sum1 else.
    And they need to stop replacing John Connor, that sh*t pisses me off, just stick to 1 kid, i understand they go from past to future at times and cant have him young on both ends, but when your not doing that just let the same actor return for 1, 2 and 3, then replace him with a much older actor, i think bale did great but i wouldnt want him back. for some reason his vision doesnt add up to the kid from t2. same thing with t3,
    Other than that, it should be great.

    James Cameron better produce this, and get his head out of his ass in Avatar. And why are they calling this a reboot that Arnold Schwarzenegger is in the film.

    I predict this movie will be great regardless of the title. Based off what Alan Taylor has said. About going back to the first and second films, how they were. Let's just hope the script is good
