Terminator: Genisys star J.K. Simmons says it's a 'love story'

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong The reboot/sequel of Terminator will be a must see for many movie fans, and one of its stars, J.K. Simmons, has revealed a few teasers regarding the movies plot.

J.K. Simmons is the star of upcoming release Whiplash, which won the Jury and Audience awards at this years Sundance Film Festival. Critics have raved over his performance in Whiplash, so it is no surprise that we're all pretty excited to see how he performs in Terminator: Genisys. recently spoke with Simmons on his role in Whiplash, but also got a few nuggets of information regarding his role in Terminator, a part he seemed very excited about. Simmons said;

"It’s a gigantic movie and that was such a surprise when they sent that to me and asked me to do it. I thought ‘Well, obviously it’s a gigantic movie and on that level, it’s something most actors would want to be a part of, but is it just going to be the formulaic yadda-yadda-yadda then cut to the stuff blowing up?’ But 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. They got great actors. I wrapped that in August, so 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."

Simmons also states that a major of his work in Terminator: Genisys is alongside returning star, Arnold Schwarzenegger;

"Yeah, most of my stuff was with Jai Courtney and Emilia Clarke and Arnold was very involved — or rather, I was involved in a fair amount of stuff with Arnold. I spent very little time actually with Jason Clarke, but yeah I got to work with all four of the leads of the film. From the table read on, I was just favourably impressed by everybody’s work. Also everybody’s attitude and what they brought to work with them every day and how there was no BS and diva tantrums. It was a good experience overall."

Terminator: Genisys opens on the 1st July 2015. Alan Taylor directs from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier.
