The upcoming reboot of the Terminator franchise has found the new Kyle Reese...

His career has taken him from Spartacus: Blood And Sand, to being Werner Herzog's henchman in Jack Reacher, through to being one of the very few to escape the shambles that was A Good Day To Die Hard in tact. It looks, though, as if Jai Courtney has found his highest profile role to date, as - confirming earlier rumours - he's been cast as Kyle Reese in the upcoming Terminator reboot, Terminator: Genesis.

He steps into shoes previously worn by Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin, and his casting completes the principal line-up for the new Terminator film. Jason Clarke is set to play John Connor, Emilia Clarke is Sarah Connor, and Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back too.

Photography can't be far off starting, given that the movie has a release date of July 1st 2015.. Terminator: Genesis is set to be the first in a new trilogy, and Thor: The Dark World's Alan Taylor is directing.
