Lee Byung Hun’s role in the new “Terminator: Genesis” film, after having been kept a secret since the announcement of the movie, seems to have been revealed.

On May 28, according to various Korean news sites, the “Terminator: Genesis” cue sheet was revealed to the online community, reports Soompi.

The cue sheet, headed with “VISTA 2ND UNIT,” lists the shooting calls, locations, and cast players. Lee Byung Hun’s character description was listed as “Cop, T-1000.”

T-1000 is the famous antagonist previously played by Robert Patrick in the 1991 film “Terminator 2: Judgement Day.”

It is a cyborg created from “liquid metal,” capable of shapeshifting and nearly impervious to damage, due to its liquid properties. If it is true the Lee Byung Hun is indeed playing the liquid terminator T-1000, he will most likely have a large role in the film, increasing the anticipation of his fans for the movie.

The actor will wrap up filming for “Terminator: Genesis” in about a month, after which he will return to Korea.

The film, which is stated to premiere next summer, is the story of a young Kyle Reese, Sarah and John Connor’s father. It is a reboot on the regular series, and will be made as a trilogy.

Alan Taylor, who directed “Thor: Dark World", will direct "Terminator: Genesis". Lee Byung Hun also stars alongside big names like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Emilia Clarke.
