Jai Courtney Will Play 'Kyle Reese' In TERMINATOR: GENESIS

Jai Courtney Will Play 'Kyle Reese' In TERMINATOR: GENESIS

It seems Jai Courtney (Jack Reacher, A Good Day to Die Hard) has beaten other front-runner Boyd Holbrook (Gone Girl) to the final major role to be cast in the upcoming Terminator reboot; Kyle Reese. Read on for more details.

Last week we found out that casting for the key role of Kyle Reese in Alan Taylor's Terminator flick had come down to two front-runners, and now Variety report that Jai Courtney will be the one to take a crack at the machines alongside Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) as Sara Connor and Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) as her their son John. Yes, the character's ages definitely imply we're in for quite a bit of time hopping, but aside from that, specific plot details are still under wraps. Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with the studio, with David Ellison producing for Skydance. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script. Terminator: Genesis will be released July 1, 2015.

I don't like this casting choice.

This guy? Wasn't he in the last "Die Hard" movie?

No love for Varo? Damn, I think he is a good choice, a bit beefier of a guy than I expected for Kyle Reese.

LOL @ Bravado

"Jack Reacher" is the only one I've seen that you have listed. And I don't even remember him in that one.

Really bad news...I didn't like him anywhere he played.

Jai Courtney? Really???

Who is this guy?
ImTheDoctor - 2/19/2014, 10:38 AM
Well, I guess I won't be seeing this terminator movie....
ALegendaryPanda - 2/19/2014, 10:39 AM
I thought he was really good in Spartacus.

Could've been worse....

While we are on this subject, they are showing T2: Judgment Day on TV tonight. Can't wait to watch it for the first time in years! Forgot how awesome it was.
ALegendaryPanda - 2/19/2014, 10:48 AM

Nah he was the dude who played Varro in season 1.

ALegendaryPanda - 2/19/2014, 10:49 AM

The Terminator is the best movie in the franchise. The rest, in my opinion, have just gradually gotten worst. Judgement Day was good, but not as great as the first. Rise of the Machines was alright, but it wasn't as good as Judgement Day and Salvation is just about decent.

I have low expectations for this movie but the best of luck to them. You never know, though. The movie could actually turn out to be pretty good. I doubt it, but there's always that chance.

Slap the kid dammit, Slap'em!
MisterBabadook - 2/19/2014, 10:57 AM
I'm not a huge fan of this guy. Jack Reacher I felt was dragged down by him and I can't really blame him for Die Hard.
Pasto - 2/19/2014, 10:58 AM
Whats up with the expression 'Tough titties'? What woman has tough/hard breasts?
dannramm113 - 2/19/2014, 10:58 AM
I have faith this week revert back to TT and T2, staying away from Salvation and Ride

They keep grooming these really bland, faceless actors to be the next action hero go-to. Watching Jai Courtney is about as boring an experience as you cab have.
MrCBM56 - 2/19/2014, 11:00 AM
IS the comment section fixed?
TheClemster - 2/19/2014, 11:00 AM
Oh boy
MrCBM56 - 2/19/2014, 11:00 AM
IT IS!!!!!
MrCBM56 - 2/19/2014, 11:01 AM
Oh yeah, back on topic. This is not a good actor. Buh bye!
CherryBomb - 2/19/2014, 11:02 AM
I like him. He's super hot.
But I feel like I've seen him everywhere lately. I always the character as being the unsuspecting underdog hero type, not some guy who's built like a wrestler.

If most of you feel it ended after "T2", then why waste your time trolling on this article? Seriously, do your lives hold no other merit?
Pasto - 2/19/2014, 11:04 AM
My back, OUCH!
Optimist18 - 2/19/2014, 11:05 AM

Yeah, and assholes like you have fun abusing it.
Pasto - 2/19/2014, 11:06 AM
Ha! Knew someone would say because he's hot he's good for the role.....my back HURTS!

How can they "time hop" I always thought the time travel in those movies was a one way ride.
