Lee Byung Hun to Play the T-1000 Terminator in “Terminator: Genesis”?
Lee Byung Hun’s role in the new “Terminator: Genesis” film, after having been kept a secret since the announcement of the movie, seems to have been revealed.
On May 28, according to various Korean news sites, the “Terminator: Genesis” cue sheet was revealed on online community. The cue sheet, headed with “VISTA 2ND UNIT,” lists the shooting calls, locations, and cast players. Particularly of note was Lee Byung Hun’s character description, which was listed as “Cop, T-1000.”
T-1000 is the famous antagonist previously played by Robert Patrick in the 1991 film “Terminator 2: Judgement Day.” It is a cyborg created from “liquid metal,” capable of shapeshifting and nearly impervious to damage, due to its liquid properties.
If it is true the Lee Byung Hun is indeed playing the liquid terminator T-1000, he will most likely have a large role in the film, increasing anticipation of his fans for the movie.
The actor will be wrapping up filming for “Terminator: Genesis” in about a month, after which he will return to Korea.
The film, which is slated to premiere next summer, is the story of a young Kyle Reese, Sarah and John Connor’s father. It is a reboot on the regular series, and will be made as a trilogy. At the megaphone is Alan Taylor, who directed “Thor: Dark World,” and starring in the film alongside Lee Byung Hun are Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke.
