With filming on Terminator: Genesis officially underway, we learn a couple new details.
The first sees bodybuilder Aaron Williamson playing a version of the T-800 Terminator (possibly younger) as Williamson took to his Facebook to let the news be known. Apparently, the post was meant to be just for his friends and family, but somehow it leaked online:
Thanks to an amazing team of people who help me get better each week, both physically & creatively, I’ll be playing a T-800 (Terminator) in the upcoming production ‘Terminator: Genesis’. I’m extremely grateful & motivated as this new chapter begins to take shape.
In addition, Aaron Williamson is said to have posted the following image of himself as a T-800 (it's unknown if it's official).
It's also being stated that three timelines will be featured in Terminator: Genesis as apparently Arnold Schwarzenegger mentioned it to The Nerdist.
The Terminator fan site, Terminator Fans, has details that Terminator: Genesis looks to feature the time periods of 1984, 2017 and a later future war date possibly 2027-2029.
"Terminator Genesis" has a July 1, 2015 release starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke as Sarah Connor, Jason Clarke as John Connor and Jai Courtney as Kyle Reese.
