We still have to wait until next summer for the fifth Terminator movie, but now, we're hearing from J.K. Simmons that the flick may be going in a direction pretty similar to the original series...
While 1984's The Terminator was a tragic love story between Kyle Reese and Sarah Connor, Terminator: Genisys is said to connect the events of The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day, which - you might think - means we're in for an action-adventure in which the lead characters attempt to undo the alleged changes to the timeline post T2.
Simmons, however, has revealed that we might be in for more kissing than ass-kicking than we first anticipated. Speaking in a recent interview, he revealed:
I found the script to be really much more intelligent and fun and funny and well-rounded and heart-felt. It's a love story. It's a really interesting script…. That was another movie that ended up being really satisfying on all levels. I have a much smaller part in that, but it was really a fun thing to be a part of.
Obviously The Terminator franchise's main time travel paradox - that John Conner's sidekick is his own father - springs from the first movie's love story between Kyle and Sarah, but that's the last time anything of comparable resonance has featured.
Oh, apart from the most emotional scene in sci-fi, obviously:
Damn it, I promised myself I'd get to the end of this article without crying... Anyway, what do you guys think of Simmons' words?
Will you be pissed if Terminator Genisys is all kissing and no ass-kicking?
