New “Terminator” Cast, Back-To-Back Sequels?

Byung-hun Lee (“G.I. Joe,” “I Saw the Devil”), Michael Gladis (“Mad Men”) and Sandrine Holt (“House of Cards”) have all joined the cast of the action franchise reboot “Terminator: Genesis” for Skydance and Paramount.

Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, J.K. Simmons and Dayo Okeniyi in the Alan Taylor-directed film. The roles for the three new actors are being kept secret, but Lee’s role is said to be a key one.

The film, the first of a proposed new trilogy, aims to be a continuation of the first two James Cameron films and will take into consideration the time passed.

Meanwhile, dropped in an article this past Friday on Deadline (so it’s apparently NOT an April Fool), comes the suggestion that producers are planning a back-to-back nine-month shoot of the second and third installments in this proposed trilogy. A lot though would depend upon Genesis’ box-office returns.
