J.K. Simmons in talks to join Terminator: Genesis

March 14th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

J.K. Simmons who played J. Jonah Jameson in Sam Raimi’s Spider-Man trilogy, is one of the best ever comic book movie castings. Now according to The Hollywood Reporter, he’s in talks to join another franchise. He’s in negotiations to join the cast of Terminator: Genesis

Their sources say he would play:

“a weary and alcoholic detective who has followed a bizarre case involving Sarah Connor and robots for more than three decades (since 1984, which, not coincidentally, is the year the original movie, directed by James Cameron, was released).”

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. 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.
