Jai Courtney Is Kyle Reese In ‘Terminator: Genesis’; Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke & Arnold Schwarzenegger Also Star
Variety are reporting that Jai Courtney has landed the role of Kyle Reese in the upcoming ‘Terminator: Genesis.’ In the 1984 original Kyle Reese, played by Michael Biehn, is sent back in time to protect Sarah Connor and ends up being the father to the savior of the future, John Connor. Courtney is coming off ‘Jack Reacher’ and ‘A Good Day To Die Hard,’ and will next be seen in ‘Divergent.’ He recently shot the Angelina Jolie-directed ‘Unbroken’ and Russell Crowe-helmed ‘The Water Diviner.’
Emilia Clarke and Jason Clarke are already on board to play Sarah and John Connor, with Arnold Schwarzenegger expected to return to his iconic role. Alan Taylor, who worked with Clarke in the HBO series ‘Game Of Thrones,’ is directing. No plot details have been released yet, but a time travel element is probably expected since Emilia Clarke and Jai Courtney are younger than Jason Clarke.
Ben Kingsley and Alessandra Mastronardi (To Rome with Love) have joined the cast of Anton Corbijn’s ’Life,’ which is now shooting in Toronto. The film tells the story of a freelance photographer, Dennis Stock (Robert Pattinson), on assignment for Life Magazine, and his unlikely friendship with the actor James Dean, played by Dane DeHaan.
Dennis Stock was a young photographer working for the Magnum agency when he received an assignment that changed his life: to shoot a free-spirited actor named James Dean. The gig became a personal journey for both as they traveled from L.A. to New York to Indiana. During the trip, Stock captured now-iconic images of the actor before he was launched to stardom with ‘East of Eden’ (1955).
