J.K. Simmons In Talks For Terminator: Genesis
He'd be a detective investigating Sarah Connor's brush with robo-death

JK-Simmons-In-talks-for-Terminator-Genesis

As various pieces of casting info leak from the pre-production process, the plot of Terminator: Genesis becomes at once clearer and more complex. Director Alan Taylor has found a solid choice to join the ensemble, with J.K. Simmons in his sights.

Acting as a sort of reboot while also using elements from at least The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, the new film will still include central figure Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke) helped by time-travelling soldier Kyle Reese (Jai Courtney) to survive an attack by a cyborg from the future intent on killing her before she can birth human resistance leader John Connor (Jason Clarke). Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has taken every opportunity to talk up his involvement, will be back (no pun intended) as some version of the Terminator, for good or ill, or even both...

Simmons will be a world-weary detective who has been driven to drink by following the bizarre case of the woman who has terrible luck with killer technology across three decades. Within that time frame Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier’s script can explore elements from both of the original movies, plus potentially the others. Recent plot rumours surfaced about twisty, Back To The Future-style visits to the chronology, though nothing has been confirmed.

Filming on this one should be kicking-off soon, in order for the film to make its June 26, 2015 release date over here.

Sarah Connor was only a bad ass in T2, in the original she was an innocent girl next door and as this would appear to be about a young Sarah once again with Kyle Reese going back to protect her in a reboot, alternate universe or whatever they decide to do plot then maybe Miss Clarke might do a good job? Only time will tell, but I'm defo gonna see this. More

The simpering, dead-eyed talent vacuum that is Emilia Clarke cast to play the ultimately supreme bad-ass Sarah Connor? Ugh! I'm going to avoid this at all costs. More
