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.
