In a recent interview Jai Courtney, who will play Kyle Reese in Terminator: Genisys, suggested that the movie would start like The Terminator did, but a new twist will change the plot as it moves along.
Speaking to the Huffington Post Courtney was very tight-lipped and cautious about giving anything away about the movie, stating that he had signed a non-disclosure agreement. The parts of the interview where the journalist tries to get him to talk about the movie are quite hilarious, as it's a series of responses where Courtney is just dodging the questions and letting know why he was bound.
But after being pressed enough, the actor did finally dish about the nature of the movie and how it's "not necessarily a reboot or a sequel."
"t's a big movie as you can imagine; in kind of uh, scale and scope and um, you know it was exhausting, it was really demanding physically but we're telling a really kind of interesting um, story there," he said. "Look, what I can say- we started in a place that we're familiar with from the early films and then circumstances change and it kind of shifts the course from that point, so it's not necessarily a sequel or a reboot."
Courtney had trouble boxing the film but suggested that it is going to take quite an unexpected course.
"I don't even know how you'd brand it correctly," he added. "I mean, we're not remaking one of the earlier Terminator movies and it doesn't necessarily pick up from where we left off."
The new film is being directed by Alan Taylor and Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to reprise his role as the iconic mean machine. Jason Clarke will be portraying the part of John Connor, and Emilia Clarke will play Sarah Connor. Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) will be playing Detective Cheung, who will "arrest Kyle and Sarah when they arrive in 2017."
While it had been suggested that the film will be a reboot, that is not exactly true. It has been reported that Terminator: Genesis will rewind to the first two films in the series and will move back and forth in the plot with the help of time travel scenes.
Terminator 5 is scheduled to release in July 2015.
