Jai Courtney joins Terminator: Genesis

Terminator: Genesis has cast its Kyle Reese, with Jai Courtney signing on to join Alan Taylor’s new take on the well-loved sci-fi series.

Earlier this month we discovered that the casting process had narrowed the field down to just Courtney and Boyd Holbrook , and now Variety reports that the former has won out.

Courtney takes on the role made famous by Michael Biehn in the original film, and will line up alongside Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke as Sarah and John Connor respectively.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is also scheduled to return in what is set to be the first instalment in a brand new Terminator trilogy, although specific plot details remain limited at this stage.

Directed by Taylor, Terminator: Genesis will open in the UK on 26 June 2015. Have your boots, clothes and motorcycles at the ready…
