Don Johnson and Robert Rodriguez team for Terminator-esque sci-fi thriller

If anyone deserves a big comeback, it's Don Johnson. The charismatic actor, who only acted in a small handful of productions in the early-to-mid 2000's, has seen quite a resurgence lately, appearing in Tarantino's DJANGO UNCHAINED, Robert Rodriguez's MACHETE and "From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series", as well as Jim Mickle's COLD IN JULY just to name a few. He'll soon be working with director David Gordon Green by writing and starring in the football tale SCORE, but it's another project that's more up our alley that has piqued our interest.

Speaking with Grantland, Johnson revealed that he has a new sci-fi project in the works with Robert Rodriguez, stating...

I’m doing a thing with Robert Rodriguez that I wrote. It’s about a guy who essentially becomes the Terminator in the 21st century. He’s an NSA experiment that’s gone terribly wrong. They’ve injected him with nanorobots to give him the computing power and destructive abilities of Deep Blue. And with all that power, he goes off the fuckin’ grid. And I’m an ex-NSA operative who went crazy in the Balkans, and they come get me out of the loony bin to get this guy.

That sounds rather interesting, especially with the TERMINATOR comparison. I'm completely down to hear more about this project, especially with Rodriguez onboard in some capacity (perhaps even directing?).

We'll keep our ears to the ground for more on this project (including a title) and will keep you posted, so keep checking in.
