TERMINATOR: GENISYS Will Tell a Love Story
Terminator: Genisys is sure to include a ton of action and robot killing machines traveling back in time to assassinate people. But there's another story that the movie will tell, and it sounds like it won't just be another hollow big budget large scale action movie. Apparently, it's also going to involve a deep love story.
The news comes from J.K. Simmons (Spider-Man) who is currently making the press rounds for his new film, Whiplash, which is amazing by the way! He has a role in Terminator: Genisys, and he discussed it a little bit in an interview with Coming Soon.
Simmons will be playing an aging, alcoholic detective who has been tracking Sarah Connor for years and has witnessed all of the strange things that have happened to her over the years.
The actor said that he started reading the screenplay expecting your standard "formulaic yadda-yadda-yadda then cut to the stuff blowing up," but he was completely surprised with what it actually ended up being. Here's what he said,
"I found the script to be really much more intelligent and fun and funny and well-rounded and heart-felt. It's a love story. It's a really interesting script…. That was another movie that ended up being really satisfying on all levels. I have a much smaller part in that, but it was really a fun thing to be a part of."
Now, before some of you freak out about this whole love story thing, you've got to remember that at the core of James Cameron's original film we saw a love story about Sarah Connor and Kyle Reese. Of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger was there to cause absolute chaos and kill a ton of people while that story was being told.
The film also stars Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese, Jason Clarke as John Connor, Dayo Okeniyi as Danny Dyson, and Schwarzenegger, who returns as T-800. The movie also includes Doctor Who’s Matt Smith and G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s Byung-hun Lee. The film will be released in theaters on July 1st, 2015.
