It was recently confirmed by Arnold Schwarzenegger that he’ll be playing an older version (yes, apparently their skin now ages) of the famous T-800 in the upcoming TERMINATOR: GENESIS. A younger version of that model was also confirmed, with it presumed that Das Arnold’s head would be attached to somebody else’s body thanks to the joys of modern technology. Now comes word that a bodybuilder has been cast to play said younger body, plus some interesting plot details have been revealed for Alan Taylor’s movie.
Aaron V. Williamson is the guy who will be playing the body of the younger T-800. As well as being a bodybuilder, Williamson has also worked as a fitness consultant on movies such as DJANGO UNCHAINED, 12 YEARS A SLAVE and CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER.
In terms of plot, Hitfix has learnt the following:
“The TERMINATOR: GENESIS script folds into the first film in the series. There’s a scene in the script where literally we the see the scene in the first TERMINATOR where Arnold steps out, the punks threaten him, he rips Bill Paxton’s heart out and takes his clothes and wanders off. And as soon as that scene ends, another Arnold Schwarzenegger, who’s older and bearded and a very different version of the Terminator, comes walking in from the other side and plays another scene, right at the scene of that first incident.”
So, if this latest story is to be believed, not only will the T-800’s skin age, it will also grew a beard? Let’s just say that the jury is firmly out on this movie at this point.
Starring Arnold, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung-hun Lee, TERMINATOR: GENESIS is currently scheduled for a 1st July, 2015 release.
