Arnold Schwarzenegger to Return in ‘Terminator: Genesis’

by Wyatt Gassen on March 19, 2014


Arnold’s back…again! Schwarzenegger has confirmed his return as the infamous T-800, with Jason Clarke (who has starred in such films as John Hillcoat’s Lawless and Baz Luhrmann’s rendition of The Great Gatsby) starring as John Connor. The film will be directed by Alan Taylor, best known for his work on the hit series Game of Thrones and for recently directing Thor: The Dark World, and also stars Jai Courtney, Emilia Clarke and JK Simmons, though casting is currently ongoing.

James Cameron, who directed the second film in the franchise, is a collaborative writer in the newest installation of Terminator films. The actioner is currently in pre-production, with its release predicted sometime in early 2015, and will be shot in New Orleans.
