John Boyega linked to Terminator: Genesis role

Attack The Block's John Boyega is seemingly on the wishlist for both Star Wars: Episode VII and Terminator: Genesis

John Boyega's impressive turn in Joe Cornish's Attack The Block has - a year or two on - resulted in him being quite an in-demand actor. Boyega is already on the shortlist, apparently, for Star Wars: Episode VII. And it's now being reported that he's potentially being lined up for a role in Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesis too.

The role in question ties Terminator: Genesis back to Terminator 2, as he'd be playing the son of Miles Dyson. Dyson was, of course, the Cyberdyne engineer who was ultimately heavily responsible for Skynet doing what Skynet did.

Given that Star Wars: Episode VII and Terminator: Genesis are set to shoot at the same time, a tug of war for Boyega's services may well ensue. We'll keep you posted as we hear more.
