Eleventh Doctor (or Twelfth, I guess if you're really counting) Matt Smith has just joined the Terminator franchise reboot currently titled Terminator: Genesis. According to the Skydance Productions official Twitter as well as news outlet Deadline, the actor has boarded the film for an undisclosed role... and sadly, it won't be a Doctor Who/Terminator crossover for all those fan-fic writers out there who had both ears immediately perk up at the sound.
I have to say, I'm apprehensively optimistic about the new film. The casting sure is spot-on with a whole lot of great leads stepping into roles. But then again, Terminator: Salvation had a pretty killer cast too and look out that turned out. Also worrisome is the "Robocop Effect" that might be in place with this new film, as the studio is apparently advocating for a PG-13 rating.
How are you feeling about the new film and the potential that it might have? Excited? Pessimistic?
