Nice! J.K. Simmons will be joining the cast of Terminator: Genesis. Per THR, “According to sources, Simmons will 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).”
I dig everything about this except for the practically obligatory alcoholic crutch.
Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script. In theaters July 1, 2015, Emilia Clarke is on board to play Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke will play John Connor. Jai Courtney is playing Kyle Reese. Arnold Schwarzenegger will also return in his iconic role. Alan Taylor is directing.
