May 3rd, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced today that Doctor Who star Matt Smith will join the cast of the upcoming Terminator reboot!

All we know is Smith will play a new character with a strong connection to John Connor.

Smith is best known for playing The Eleventh Doctor on the popular Doctor Who television series from 2010 to 2103. He can be seen next on the big screen in Lost River, directed by Ryan Gosling

The Alan Taylor directed reboot is 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. More recent additions to the cast include Byng-hun Lee (G.I. Joe: Retaliation), J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man), Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) and Dayao Okeniyi (The Hunger Games).

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 1st, 2015.
