According to The Hollywood Reporter, Byung-hun Lee, who played Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe movies, has been cast in a key role in Alan Taylor’s Terminator: Genesis. Also joining the cast are Michael Gladis (Mad Men) and Sandrine Holt (House of Cards).
The reboot of the franchise being produced by Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions will bring back Arnold Schwarzenegger in the title role with Jai Courtney playing Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke playing Sarah Connor. Dayo Okeniyi is playing Danny the son of Miles Dyson, the Cyberdyne engineer largely responsible for the birth of Skynet. J.K. Simmons is playing a detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades.
The idea is to thread together ideas from the previous movies to relaunch the story of a cyborg from the future sent back to prevent computers from gaining sentience and turning on humanity.
The film will be released July 1, 2015.
