The search for the next Terminator is over. Tim Miller and James Cameron have cast Gabriel Luna in the title role of the sixth “Terminator” sequel, Deadline reports. Luna is best known for playing Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider on the ABC superhero series “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” He also starred in the El Rey Network series “Matador” and the movies “Freeheld” and “Transpecos.”

The untitled “Terminator” sequel is the first to be overseen by Cameron since he directed, wrote, and produced “The Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgment Day.” Cameron selected “Deadpool” director Miller to helm the new installment, which will see original stars Arnold Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton return to the franchise as the T-800 and Sarah Connor, respectively. Story details are being kept under wraps, but the film will serve as a direct sequel to “T2,” skipping the timelines of the three sequels.

In addition to Luna, actors Natalia Reyes and Diego Bonita are also joining the cast. “Blade Runner 2049” star Mackenzie Davis was announced as a cast member at the beginning of March. Paramount has already set a November 22, 2019 release date for the film.
