After months of rumors and auditions from seemingly every up-and-coming actor in Hollywood, the rebooted 'Terminator 5,' officially titled 'Terminator: Genesis,' finally found its Kyle Reese. Australian actor Jai Courtney landed the role, which will see him appearing alongside franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger and 'Game of Thrones' breakout Emilia Clarke.
In 1991, James Cameron unleashed 'Terminator 2: Judgment Day,' his follow-up to 'The Terminator,' in which Linda Hamilton's Sarah Connor and her son John teamed up with a Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to fight off an advanced machine sent back in time to kill them because they were society's only hope for salvation. The film was a massive success and even won four Academy Awards, including statues for Best Visual Effects and Makeup. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of this action-packed sci-fi classic and see what they're up to now.
Just when you thought franchise-connectivity news was at an all-time high this week -- with 'X-Men: Apocalypse,' its 'Fantastic Four' tie-ins, and every other big-budget property under the sun -- in comes a new 'Terminator' TV series in development with Paramount, said to connect to the upcoming rebooted film series! Hooray for things!
While it's only been a week since 'Veronica Mars' first launched a movie Kickstarter to massive success, already fans from dozens of past TV series have begun asking if their favorites will be next for the Kickstarter treatment. And while Joss Whedon has spoken out about 'Firefly,' and both 'Pushing Daisies' and 'Chuck' seem like viable candidates, what of canceled fan-favorite 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles?' Series show-runner Josh Friedman talks about the Kickstarter possibility inside!
Arnold Schwarzenegger has been presumed to return to his arguably most famous action movie franchise, 'Terminator,' since around the time he was leaving his California Governor's chair. Back then, he didn't have a script to even consider, but now that one is being developed, it seems that in fact he will be back for another installment.
Remember back when Arnold Schwarzenegger had just left the governor’s office and was actively looking to reboot his acting career? Rumors swirled that the ‘Terminator’ star was more than willing to return to the franchise that helped put him on the map for a fifth installment. As it turns out, we might have to thank James Cameron for talking Schwarzenegger down from that ‘Terminator’ ledge.
