Nicholas Hoult and Garrett Hedlund reportedly both passed on the role.

Based on the ages of the characters and the actors being discussed, more prominent time travel appears to be key to the storyline compared to the recent Terminator films. No plot details have been released at this time.

Arnold Schwarzenegger is set to play a role, but may not be the only Terminator model featured.
