It’s been running around the rumour mill for a while now but today sees Variety confirming that Jai Courtney has been cast as Kyle Reese in the newest reboot – Terminator: Genesis.

The role was made famous by the brilliant, but often overlooked Michael Biehn, a favourite of director James Cameron. Kyle Reese is the soldier who is sent back through time to stop a robotic killing machine from assassinating the mother of the future saviour. We at Thn love the original Terminator and Kyle Reese even featured in our top alternative valentines recently; our passion for Cameron’s work leaves us somewhat dubious about the latest instalment to the series.

I myself am a huge fan of the original two films and am not sure about this casting choice. For me personally, Michael Biehn and Anton Yelchin’s ‘Reese’s’ were both wiry and athletic in build – which fits »
