That's right, folks, we've got a new Sarah Connor in Emilia Clarke (pictured)! Deadline reports that Clarke will play Sarah Connor in the TERMINATOR reboot, re-teaming with director Alan Taylor, who has worked with Clarke in the HBO series "Game Of Thrones". Clarke joins Jason Clarke, who is currently in negotiations to play her son John Connor. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also back in his signature cyborg role—saw that coming!
Emilia Clarke's breakout role came in "Game of Thrones" and she has quickly become one hell of a presence on screen so I'm glad to see that she got the nod for the role of Sarah Connor. Filling these shoes is certainly not going to be easy but I think she'll surprise a lot of people who don't watch the popular HBO series—it also doesn't hurt that she's easy on the eyes!
We still have no idea on what the film is going to be about, but what we do know is that TERMINATOR: GENESIS is the first installment in a stand-alone trilogy. Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with Paramount with David Ellison producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script. Right now the film is eying a July 2015 release, so hopefully we'll have more on this one soon!
