"Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures have jointly announced they will partner on a rebooted “TERMINATOR” movie, to be released by Paramount Pictures on June 26, 2015.
The first in a stand-alone trilogy, “TERMINATOR” will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (“Avatar,” “Shutter Island”) and Patrick Lussier (“Drive Angry”) are attached to write the screenplay"
There's no mention of how this change will effect Arnold Schwarzenegger's role in the series or if he will even be in Terminator 5 now that this new deal has taken place.
Personally I don't like the sounds of this at all, any Terminator series where T2 never happened wouldn't be worth watching to me.
There's also a video with some more information at IGN
"DNA will know in the next few weeks whether the important DVD/Blu-ray sales have boosted the overall profits on the movie enough to consider a sequel. Tell everyone to start their letter writing and sharing of the film in earnest as this could be the last chance for a number of years or never!"

A small update on Grudge Match, the release date has been pushed from January 2014 to christmas day.
The director of the Dolph Lundgren/Tony Jaa movie Skin Trade has also been revealed:
"Upcoming Dolph Lundgren / Tony Jaa star vehicle Skin Trade has its director and according to a post on Lundgren's Instagram account the job is going to Beautiful Boxer helmer Ekachai Uekrongtham.
It's an interesting choice for while Uekrongtham has showcased action chops and an interest in broader genre film in his past work he's still primarily viewed as an arthouse director and it's a safe bet that he'll push both Lundgren and co-star Tony Jaa harder on the performance side of the equation than normal, which could be a very good thing.
Skin Trade is an international action picture set against the backdrop of the sex trade in Bangkok. Lundgren wrote the initial draft - since worked on further by Universal Soldier veteran John Hyams - with Lundgren producing and starring as an ex cop. Jaa will co-star as Lundgren's Bangkok based counterpart. Beautiful Boxer premiered at the 2004 Berlin film festival before going on a lengthy run that included stops at top tier events in Hong Kong and Locarno."
We also have a new picture of Scott Adkins in Ninja 2 and two fan posters by Daniel:
