20 February 2014

2014: the year Jai-net becomes self-aware.

Jai Courtney, who played John McClane’s son in A Good Day To Die Hard, is set to play John Connor’s dad in the forthcoming Terminator reboot.

Courtney has signed up to play Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis, a reboot to the classic sci-fi action franchise originally made famous by James Cameron and Arnold Schwarzenegger.

Kyle Reese, the father of John Connor after he travels back in time and sleeps with Sarah Connor, was originally played by Michael Biehn in the first two films, and by Anton Yelchin in Terminator Salvation.

In this new film, Emilia Clark (Game of Thrones) will play Sarah Connor, and Jason Clarke will play her son John.

Most details are still being kept under wraps, but Schwarzenegger is heavily rumoured to be making an appearance - possibly as a cameo in a Terminator factor.

Terminator: Genesis is set to be released to cinemas on June 26th, 2015.
