Briefly: It was a long, hard-fought battle, but the star of Jack Reacher and A Good Day To Die Hard has emerged victorious. Now he just has to fight a bunch of killer robots.
Jai Courtney has been cast as Kyle Reese in Alan Taylor‘s Terminator: Genesis, a 2015 reboot of James Cameron’s blockbuster franchise. (It’s the role made famous by Michael Biehn in Cameron’s original.) He’ll join Arnold Schwarzenegger, who plays the killing machine, Jason Clarke as his son John Connor, and Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, who Reese is sent into the past to protect. If you want to know if the plot details this time around are all the same as in Cameron’s first film, address questions to Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, who wrote the script. [Variety]
