Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD‘s Gabriel Luna will be the new Terminator in the upcoming Tim Miller-directed film, according to Deadline.
Natalia Reyes (Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas) and Diego Boneta (Scream Queens) will also star in the new movie. They join Mackenzie Davis (Blade Runner 2049, Halt and Catch Fire, The Martian), Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Linda Hamilton in Skydance’s new Terminator movie, which will begin production this summer.
The new Terminator movie is both set to start a new trilogy of films and also work as a sequel to Terminator 2: Judgment Day, and it will ignore Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines, Terminator: Salvation, and Terminator Genisys. In addition to Schwarzenegger, Hamilton will also return to the franchise as a “seasoned warrior” version of Sarah Connor.
James Cameron, who will regain the Terminator rights in 2019, is producing the new film series with David Ellison of Skydance. The filmmaker originally sold the rights to the original film for $1 to producer Gale Anne Hurd, with the agreement that he would be allowed to direct The Terminator, starring Arnold Schwarzenegger. The first film earned $78.4 million worldwide and was topped by Cameron’s highly-acclaimed sequel, Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which grossed $519.8 million worldwide.
Billy Ray (The Hunger Games) wrote the script, which was conceived by Cameron, Miller, and Ellison. The new movie will hit theaters on November 22, 2019.
