For the past year or so, we’ve been following the progress of the upcoming sequel/reboot of the Terminator franchise. This one will ignore all sequels after T2: Judgment Day, which would immediately nix all sorts of needless convolution.

Though despite the fact that this is a franchise that’s been wrung out about as much as a franchise can, this is a project that’s moved forward rather quickly. James Cameron is set as producer and Deadpool director Tim Miller is set to helm. More and more, it seemed like it had gained all the momentum it needed, but it looks like it hasn’t gone quite fast enough.

According to THR, Paramount has pushed back the release date for the film from July 26, 2019 to November 22, 2019. This is just under four months and is proof of some of the work that still needs to go into it. Had they wanted to hit that July date, they would have had only a few more months in which to begin shooting. As it stands, this gives them just enough time to iron out the script and set the production schedule, which is probably a good idea. No word yet on if the June 19production date will be moved, but it seems like it’d be a good bet that they will.

Over the past month or so, we’ve had casting confirmations that include the returns of franchise vets Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Additionally, Mackenzie Davis was hired as the “face” of the new franchise.

As of right now, this November release date has put them up against a currently-untitled Fox/Marvel movie.

What do you think of this delay? Does it have you worried that the film won’t happen? Let us know your thoughts down below!
