Dawson will portray Kokoro, who is described as “an advanced AI and Japan’s answer to Skynet, if brought online, Kokoro will be endowed with the same power as Skynet. Kokoro must calculate for itself: is humanity the plague Skynet believes? Or are human beings worth saving?” Holland will portray Malcolm Lee, “a genius computer programmer and father of three who is haunted by haunted by prophetic nightmares of an apocalyptic future.” Mizuno will play Eiko, “a resistance fighter sent back in time to stop Malcolm from launching Kokoro.” Dowd will protray The Prophet, a “philosophical guide for the human resistance who shpeherds survivors into an unknown future.”

Here’s the official description:
