According to Deadline, Gabriel Luna has been cast in Terminator 6 as the newest cybernetic killer to cause trouble for the protagonists.

So, the question remains - will this finally be the Terminator sequel that'll actually work, or is the franchise finally (don't do it, don't do it) terminated?

Luna, who's now playing Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider on Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

"This is a continuation of the story from Terminator 1 and Terminator 2". His performance as Robbie Reyes in S.H.I.E.L.D. conveyed the complexity of the character extremely well, and even though he had a darkness to him, he was still a hero.

The new, now untitled Terminator film will be a direct sequel to the first two films - The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgment Day - and will completely disregard all follow-ups. Joining Terminator 6 will be his biggest cinematic appearance yet, though if he's anything like the other antagonistic Terminator models, I imagine he won't be much of a chatterbox. Considering the art draws heavily on how the Terminators have looked in the past, it won't be surprising if this is close to how Luna looks come next year. Reyes will play a working-class woman in Mexico City caught between the human and machine war.

Hamilton and Schwarzenegger are reprising their roles, but sources say that their parts are relatively brief.

Natalie Reyes (Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas) and Diego Boneta (Scream Queens) have also been cast to star in the film. David S. Goyer (Batman Begins), Charles Eglee (Dark Angel) and Josh Friedman (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles) developed the script, however, Billy Ray (The Hunger Games) has been brought on board to do a rewrite.
