Terminator Reboot In Talks with Mackenzie Davis to Lead Franchise


Actor Mackenzie Davis may expand her sci-fi filmography with a role in Skydance Media's upcoming Terminator movie.

The actor, who is probably best known for her role as Cameron Howe on AMC's Halt and Catch Fire, is in negotiations to join the production, according to Variety. Davis already has a string of sci-fi outings under her belt, including an appearance in Blade Runner 2049 and The Martian. Davis also starred in the "San Junipero" episode of Black Mirror, which won a Golden Globe.

It's currently unclear what role Davis might end up playing in the film, as little is currently known about the upcoming reboot, which will see franchise creator James Cameron return as a producer. The new movie will do away with the events of every film after Terminator 2: Judgement Day and will feature an all-star cast that includes original Sarah Connor Linda Hamilton. The movie is set to spawn a new trilogy with new characters, provided it fares well at the box-office. It's possible that Davis will play one of those new characters.
