Jai Courtney & Boyd Holbrook Eyed For Kyle Reese Role In ‘Terminator: Genesis’; Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke & Arnold Schwarzenegger Star
Deadline are reporting it’s between Jai Courtney and Boyd Holbrook to play Kyle Reese in the upcoming ‘Terminator: Genesis.’ In the 1984 original, that character, 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.’ Holbrook’s upcoming films include the David Fincher-directed ‘Gone Girl,’ the Scott Frank-helmed ‘A Walk Among The Tombstones’ and the Gavin O’Connor-directed ‘Jane Got A Gun.’
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 the guys eyed for the Kyle Reese role are younger than Jason Clarke.
THR have caught wind that writer-director Jonathan Levine is set to re-team with his ’50/50′ stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen for an Untitled Xmas Comedy. Sony beat out several studios to nab the project, which is on the fast track for a summer 2014 start. The film revolves around three childhood best friends who reunite in New York City for their annual tradition of going out on Christmas Eve. Gordon-Levitt and Rogen will play two of the best friends, with the third lead role still to be cast. Levine penned the screenplay.
The project also reunites the ’50/50′ trio with Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane, whose company Mandate Pictures – now named Good Universe – produced and co-financed ’50/50.’ Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Pictures also is onboard to produce Xmas. ’50/50,’ which centered on a 27-year-old man’s (Gordon-Levitt) struggles after a cancer diagnosis, became a critical hit and was nominated for a best picture Golden Globe. The film cost $8 million and earned $39 million worldwide.
With ‘Non-Stop’ on the horizon, Universal Pictures has teamed with Key & Peele for a brilliant new sketch featuring their Liam Neesons-loving valets.

During a transatlantic flight from New York City to London, U.S. Air Marshal Bill Marks (Neeson) receives a series of cryptic text messages demanding that he instruct the government to transfer $150 million into an off-shore account. Until he secures the money, a passenger on his flight will be killed every 20 minutes. ‘Non-Stop,’ which reunites Neeson with ‘Unknown’ director Jaume Collet-Serra and producer Joel Silver, co-stars Golden Globe Award winner Julianne Moore, Lupita Nyong’o, Scoot McNairy, Nate Parker, Anson Mount, Michelle Dockery, and Corey Stoll.

Dr. Will Caster (Depp) is the foremost researcher in the field of Artificial Intelligence, working to create a sentient machine that combines the collective intelligence of everything ever known with the full range of human emotions. His highly controversial experiments have made him famous, but they have also made him the prime target of anti-technology extremists who will do whatever it takes to stop him.
Variety bring word that ‘Game of Thrones’ (Daario Naharis) star Ed Skrein is set to succeed Jason Statham in the reboot of the ‘Transporter’ franchise. Skrein previously starred in Ben “Plan B” Drew’s critically acclaimed crime drama ‘Ill Manors.’ “We searched everywhere to find a fresh face who had the potential to become an action movie star and we’ve found the right match with Ed Skrein, who’s not only a great actor but also has enough charisma and physical stamina to play Frank Martin (the ‘Transporter’s’ leading role) with brio,” EuropaCorp CEO Christophe Lambert told the outlet.
Although plot details are still kept under wraps, Christophe Lambert said the first installment of the ‘Transporter’ reboot will return to the French Riviera, the site of the first movie. He said the writers, Bill Collage and Adam Cooper, have given more depth to the character of Frank Martin, whose job is to transport goods and ask no questions. For instance, the movie will explore Martin’s relationship with his father, whose role will be played by a prominent actor.
