And ACTION! New Terminator star!

HOLLYWOOD, CA (May 1, 2014) – Paramount Pictures and Skydance Productions announced that “Doctor Who” star Matt Smith will join the cast of the upcoming “TERMINATOR” reboot.

Smith will play a new character with a strong connection to John Connor, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger, who “will be back” as well as Jason Clarke, Emilia Clarke, Jai Courtney, J.K. Simmons, Dayo Okeniyi and Byung Hun Lee.

Alan Taylor is directing the film from a screenplay by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. David Ellison and Dana Goldberg of Skydance Productions are producing. Skydance’s Paul Schwake, Annapurna Pictures’ Megan Ellison, Kalogridis and Lussier are executive producing.

Smith is best known for playing The Doctor on the popular “Doctor Who” television series during the 2011-2103 seasons. His other television credits include “Christopher and His Kind,” “Moses Jones,” and “The Street.”

The 11th Doctor takes the TARDIS to Hollywood!

He can be seen next on the big screen in “LOST RIVER,” directed by Ryan Gosling, alongside Christina Hendricks, Saoirse Ronan and Eva Mendes…looking very UN-Doctor like. However I imagine that’s the whole objective behind leaving his beloved Doctor behind and spreading his Thespian wings across the pond to Hollywood!

Not sure I’d get in the TARDIS with this guy! But bravo on stretching his artistic muscles!

The “TERMINATOR” franchise launched in 1984 with Schwarzenegger as the title character and spanned three subsequent films, which have earned more than $1 billion at the worldwide box office.

Paramount will distribute the film worldwide on July 1, 2015.

More details as soon as I get them! Therefore….I’ll be back!
