Heat Vision has more casting for the latest Terminator.

Says the site, Byung-hun Lee, who played Storm Shadow in the G.I. Joe movies (pictured), has been cast in a key role in Terminator: Genesis, the reboot of the sci-fi action franchise being made by Skydance and Paramount.

Also joining the cast are “Mad Men” actor Michael Gladis and “House of Cards’” Sandrine Holt. The trio join stars Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, and Arnold Schwarzenegger and supporting players J.K. Simmons and Dayo Okeniyi in the movie, which is being directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World).

The project aims to be a continuation of the James Cameron classics and is trying to tie all the threads and even take into consideration the time passed. For example, Schwarzenegger is back as Terminator cyborg and his older appearance will be explained. Okeniyi is playing the son of Miles Dyson, the Cyberdyne exec played by Joe Morton in the Terminator: Judgement Day whose character was a little boy in that movie. (Clarke is portraying Sarah Connor, Courtney will be Kyle Reese and Clarke is John Connor.)

The site teases that Lee’s role is being kept locked down, but it promises to be a doozy.

    This article is a little troubling too me…
    I look forward with great anticipation to see this franchise move forward….
    however my problem is that i really dislike super hero or comic book superhero big budget action movies… Exception to the rule was i thoroughly enjoyed “Thor” pt1 but I couldnt stomach Thor The Dark World…Hated it for a plethora of reasons…
    Now this is the(Thor.2) director slated to Captain the Terminator franchise next film….
    say it aint so !!!!
    Not in the hands of CGI comic book men…
    I know people will call me hater but i dont like were this is going already…
    They can have a stellar cast but if this film plays out like Thor2 .. Then to me its dead in the water…
    god i hope not..
