Hunger Games actor joins new Terminator

Hunger Games actor joins new Terminator

Dayo Okeniyi is set to star in the upcoming “Terminator” reboot.

Reported by Deadline, Okeniyi will play the lead in the first film of the trilogy, “Terminator: Genesis”, which is due to begin filming soon in Louisiana. The second and third instalments are set to be shot back to back after the first wraps up.

John Boyega was also a favourite for the part which Okeniyi ultimately nabbed.

He will play genius Danny Dyson, son of braniac cyborg developer Miles Dyson who appeared in “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” played by Joe Mortin. Danny holds the key to Skynet, the thing that makes the whole intelligence system possible.

Other leads include Emilia Clarke (Sara Connor), Jason Clarke (John Connor), Jai Courtney (Kyle Reese) and, of course, Arnold Schwarzenegger will play the Terminator.

The pic will be directed by Allen Taylor and is set to be released in July 1, 2015.
