Jai Courtney to play Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genesis

February 19th, 2014 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

It was just last week that we got word that the role of Kyle Reese was down to Jai Courtney (A Good Day to Die Hard) and Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl).

Well now, Variety are reporting that the role played by Michael Biehn in James Cameron’s original Terminator, now belongs to Jai Courtney.

Courtney will join Arnold Schwarzegger as the signature cyborg, Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke as Sara Connor and Zero Dark Thirty’s Jason Clarke as her son John Connor in the film that will be directed by Thor: The Dark World  helmer Alan Taylor.

The film will be released July 1, 2015.
