Filming for the TERMINATOR Reboot Just Kicked off in New Orleans

Principal photography for the still-unnamed Terminator reboot/sequel thing just kicked off in New Orleans today, with director Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Thor: The Dark World) at the helm.

In this morning’s press release from Paramount, producers Skydance Productions wanted to remind us all that the next installment in the franchise was actually happening after months of furious casting for the very hush-hush project from Avatar and Shutter Island writer Laeta Kalogridis and Drive Angry writer Patrick Lussier. To recap, Arnold is back, joined by Jason Clarke as Kyle Reese, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, and Jai Courtney as John, while J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi, and Byung Hun Lee round out the cast.

The shape of the movie is still up in the air, but recently, Schwarzenegger sat down with Chris during the Nerdist Podcast to tease out some details about his involvement in the film.

The film hits screens July 1, 2015.

    Maybe his sagging skin oozes off his body in this one.

  2. vismund says:

    its Terminator: Genesis that was announced months ago…

  3. Squirly says:

    @Dustin, don’t quote me on this, but I think time travel might be involved.

  4. Dustin Hertel says:

    K so, let me get this straight…. a 44 year old Kyle Reese hooked up with a 26 year old Sarah Conner to have a 28 year old John? WTF?

  5. Dude says:

    I’m pretty sure it’s titled “Terminator: Genesis”

  6. Lisa says:

    IMDB has it that Jai is playing Kyle Reese and Jason Clarke is playing John Connor… I trust the Nerdist reporting team, but admit I am a bit confused.
