Casting Rumor: Miles Dyson’s Son In “Terminator: Genesis”

March 27, 20140 Comments

THR reports that John Boyega (Attack the Block) has not only tested for a role in Star Wars Episode VII, but also for the role of Miles Dyson’s son in Terminator: Genesis.

Doctor Miles Bennett Dyson (Joe Morton) had a key part in James Cameron’s 1991 Terminator 2: Judgment Day. He was the inventor of the neural-net processor which would lead to the development of Skynet, a computer A.I. intended to control electronically linked weapons and defend the United States, but which would later seize control of the world and launch a global war of extermination against humanity.

John Connor and his Terminator intercept Sarah Connor’s attempts to assassinate him, leading to a massive shootout and the eventual death of Dyson when they blow up Skynet headquarters together. You probably remember his son playing with the RC car during the assassination attempt.

This confirms the earlier plot leaks about Genesis pulling a “Back to the Future Part II” and visiting scenes and characters from the earlier films. What role do you think Dyson’s grown up son will play in the grand scheme of things?

Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) is directing from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.

Emilia Clarke is on board to play Sarah Connor and Jason Clarke will play John Connor. Jai Courtney is playing Kyle Reese. Meanwhile, J.K. Simmons plays an alcoholic detective trying to make sense of the events of 1984.

Terminator: Genesis will hit theaters on July 1st, 2015.
