Director Tim Miller and Producer James Cameron have cast Gabriel Luna in the title role of the sixth TERMINATOR sequel. Luna is best known for starring as Robbie Reyes/Ghost Rider on the ABC action superhero series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Natalie Reyes (Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas) and Diego Boneta (Scream Queens) have also been cast to star in the film. Both Linda Hamilton and Arnold Schwarzenegger, two of the franchise staples, will return, joined by Mackenzie Davis from The Martian and Blade Runner 2049.

Reyes is best known for her starring role in Sony’s hit Latin American Series Lady, La Vendedora de Rosas and as one of the stars in Peter Webber’s Netflix original film Pickpockets. She is represented by Vision Entertainment.
Boneta’s first feature film was the musical Rock of Ages with Tom Cruise, and he recently appeared in the Netflix sci-fi thriller The Titan with Sam Worthington, another Terminator vet. Boneta is also the playing the lead in Netflix’s Spanish language biopic Luis Miguel, playing the famous Latin American singer, which debuts April 23. Boneta is repped by UTA and Grandview.
