Terminator Genesis begins filming

April 22nd, 2014 by Marc Comments

Like it or not, we’re getting a new Terminator movie and, to be honest, we actually kinda like what we’re hearing so far…

Anyway, Skydance have released this above image on their official Facebook page and, while it’s nothing more than a tease, it does include the legend: RIP Sarah in memory of the late camera assistant Sarah Jones.

So, we like much of the casting, we like the director and we are kind of suckers for Terminator movies, so we’re trying not t be but the excitement is there… lurking, wanting to be 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. 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.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
