“Terminator : Genesis” – or “Terminator”, as Paramount still refer to it, suggesting they aren’t quite convinced ‘Genesis’ needs to be there on the end of the thing – isn’t a reboot, and it isn’t a sequel, actor J.K Simmons (“Spider-Man”) tells Empire.

As per our exclusive story spoilers for the film, “Genesis” is mostly made up of new actors playing old roles. “All the leading characters are characters who have existed in that world – the character I play is new to it.”

Simmons, who worked with director Alan Taylor on some episodes of TVs “Oz”), hints that Schwarzenegger’s playing somewhat of a different role in the film to his red-eyed assassin.

“The script, I think, is very smart, and it’s going to be a wonderful part for Arnold to do”.

The “Labor Day” actor says he was hesitant to even consider the film when it first hit his desk – but he’s clearly been won over.

“I was leery of it when it first came my way, when my agent sent me the idea for it,” said Simmons. “It’s a small part, which they insist gets much bigger in the sequels. But I was very pleasantly surprised by the script itself.

“I’m optimistic that this can be one of those films. Y’know, it’s a big action franchise, but it’s also going to be a really intelligent, entertaining, enjoyable film.”

The movie, currently shooting in New Orleans, stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, yung-hun Lee, Matt Smith, Sandrine Holt and Dayo Okeniyi, and is intended to be the first chapter in a new three-parter.

Some set vids have started to pop up online too – check them out.
