It’s official: A Good Day to Die Hard co-star Jai Courtney will indeed play Kyle Reese to Arnold Schwarzenegger’s T-800 in Alan Taylor’s Terminator: Genesis, Variety reports.

Courtney now can be seen in Divergent, which opened just last weekend. In fact, potential scheduling conflicts with that film’s sequel Insurgent almost led to the actor to drop out of the Reese role, but now it looks like he’ll be able to shoot both.

Terminator: Genesis details are still mostly under wraps, although it was announced last year that this new film will be the first entry in a new trilogy.

Courtney joins a cast that includes Schwarzenegger, Emilia Clarke, Jason Clarke and J.K. Simmons. Terminator: Genesis is slated to open on July 1, 2015.
