The actual specifics of how the chronology-twisting Terminator: Genesis plot will work may still be locked in a vault guarded by two cyborg exoskeletons, but details on casting are now arriving faster than Sarah Connor can run. The latest names added to the list include House Of Cards’ Sandrine Holt, G.I. Joe’s Byung-hun Lee and Mad Men veteran Michael Gladis.
They’re joining Emilia Clarke (Sarah Connor), Jason Clarke (John Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese), Dayo Okeniyi (Danny Dyson, son of Miles), J.K. Simmons (a detective investigating the robo-madness) and some young whippersnapper named Arnold Schwarzenegger (the T-800) in the film, written by Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis with Alan Taylor getting ready to direct.
As for the newcomers to the cast, The Hollywood Reporter wasn’t able to find out their roles, but Deadline reports that she’s Detective Cheung, who arrests Sarah and Kyle when they show up in 2017. Talking of dates, the film is set to materialise in our cinemas on June 26 next year.
