Well, Edward Furlong might be back but not in the way fans would have anticipated. It looks like a British boy by the name of Jude Collie has landed a role in Terminator (2019) and could possibly be undergoing the Brett Azar treatment to bring a CGI young John Connor to the new Terminator movie (guess work). If this is true we will also make the guess that we may see Sarah and John hit the road from the events of the steel mill or some form of a flashback/nightmare but if they dare change the ending of Terminator 2: Judgment Day (Uncle Bob lives)… we were promised a canon sequel so the the studios wouldn’t be stupid enough to alter T2’s story- but would they? Let’s pray this is a well executed minimal flashback scene.

Edward Furlong is extremely popular in regard to fans of Terminator 2 but again TheTerminatorFans.com are NOT fans of CGI or digital human characters and this feels like Genisys nostalgia overload mark 2.
The real Edward Furlong is currently in rehab and we just don’t know how to feel about this new Terminator movie if Jude Collie is playing Edward Furlong’s character. This just seems to spoiler laden this early on and it just ruined something that could have been a pleasant surprise in the movie.
The other option is Jude is playing the son of John Connor and the fact he shares a similar likeness to Furlong and the same haircut could be the family connection or a total misdirection. Seeing as Jude is from England he would need to do a hell of a good imitation of an American accent to be able to become a convincing leading role in the new Terminator trilogy and to step into the sneakers of a young Edward Furlong. Is John Connor’s son the new savior? Oh man, this movie is just becoming kinda weird and has way too much going on already. It’s a good thing that there are questions to ask but are they really the sorts of questions we want to be asking and is it way to early to be asking them?
This is just causing unease to say the least, maybe it’s just best to shrug it off at this stage; throw our arms in the air and simply say “whatever, we’ll see”.
This was all supposed to be top secret…
Jude’s entertainment agents Brown & Mills Entertainment LTD posted the following on the 24th of May from Facebook with an image from the set of Terminator (2019)
Guessing that top secret is kinda screwed now…
We do have to say we were pleasantly surprised the movie thus far did not have a child actor in it but will Jude be a new real Connor character or a CGI nostalgia character? Terminator Fan Alexander House speculates to us on Facebook that this could be young Kyle Reese. Do you have any more theories?
