Arnold Schwarzenegger, who has been playing the titular character since 1984's "The Terminator", is also set to reprise his role for the sixth film. Mackenzie Davis, Gabriel Luna, Diego Boneta and Natalia Reyes have been added to the cast.
Luna will reportedly play the new model of Terminator. Reyes will be playing a young woman named Dani. She is from a working class neighborhood and finds herself caught in the battle between humans and machines. Meanwhile, Boneta is tapped to play Dani's brother. As for Davis, her role is currently unknown.
The plot of the reboot is under wraps but it will reportedly center on a battle between man and machine. The original helmer James Cameron, who is back as a producer, said that the film would be a direct sequel to "Terminator 2: Judgment Day". "This is a continuation of the story from Terminator 1 and Terminator 2," he previously told The Hollywood Reporter.
He added, "And we're pretending the other films were a bad dream. Or an alternate timeline, which is permissible in our multi-verse. This was really driven more by [Tim] than anybody, surprisingly, because I came in pretty agnostic about where we took it. The only thing I insisted on was that we somehow revamp it and reinvent it for the 21st century."
The new "Terminator" movie is set for a November 22, 2019 release in the U.S.
