Terminator 5 Casting: Five actors are being considered for the roles of Sarah and John Connor

Nov. 6, 2013by: Niki Stephens

I've been waiting for some sort of news on TERMINATOR 5. I'm excited about the possibility that Alan Taylor (GAME OF THRONES, THOR: THE DARK WORLD) could be the director. He certainly has a lot to say about the production for someone who doesn't even have the job yetor does he? I have a feeling we will know for sure soon enough.

On to the news of the day, the guys over at Schmoes Know have another exclusive this time pertaining to the two other major roles in TERMINATOR-- Sarah and John Connor.

Emilia Clarke (GAME OF THRONES), Brie Larson (21 JUMP STREET), and Margot Robbie (WOLF OF WALL STREET) are being considered for Sarah. Notice another Alan Taylor connection with Clarke being up for a role. There are things I like about both Larson and Clarke. However, I can't say much for Robbie since I am not as familiar with her work. I think Larson has the personality but I wonder about the physicality. For Clarke it's the opposite though I do love me some Daenerys. Fun Fact: Another GAME OF THRONES alumni, Lena Heady played Sarah in TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES.

Boyd Holbrook (THE HOST) and Garrett Hedlund (TRON: LEGACY) have been thrown into the mix for John Connor. I'm not sold on either of these choices but prefer Holbrook who was great in History Channel's HATFIELDS and MCCOYS.

Both ages that are being looked at for the characters range between 20s to early 30s. Does this mean that John is going to go back and talk to his mom before he's born? What does this mean for the Terminator? Where is he at in the picture?

Let us know what you think below!

As it turns out there doesn't really need to be any more Terminator movies so if they wanted to they could just not make this and spend money on something else.

Terminator goes Twilight

Sarah and John Connor are actually a married couple. They're def going for a younger demographic with these choices and having a mother and son in the same age starring in the movie just seems off, especially if you know what happened in the old movies when they sent a guy back in time to save Sarah Connor.

If only. ...

If only the terminator could go back in time and prevent the last Indiana Jones, Glee, Greys anatomy, Pacific rim, Ashtons addition on two and a half, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, and all reality television. I'd live 15 now years.

Prediction!!!!!

They're going to Butterfly Effect the entire franchise!

In the future they have an all out war and John Connor comes up with a plan to send the reprogrammed Arnold Terminator back in time a la events of T2. But knowing how it all plays out, John Connor sends himself back in time to the events of T1 instead and kicks Sarah Connor in the stomach the day after Kyle Reese bangs her. Thus preventing his birth and any reason why the terminators would have ever been created. And then Ashton

Oh and John Connor's best friend is a talking pie!

I guess I'll just have to keep watching T1 & T2 since they're NEVER going to make another movie to top those two.

These are bad choices, especially the females. Off the top of my head I would say Emily Blunt. She's combat ready since she's costaring with Tom Cruise in Edge of Tomorrow and she already played a Sarah Connor type character in Looper. As for the guys they're ok but I don't picture John as a warrior, so I wouldn't go with Garrett Hedlund. He has a soldier look, whereas John is more of a leader and as a teen he was a hacker. Boyd is more believable as John. Besides him, Joel Kinnaman is the

Depends what they're thinking of, really. If they're after a younger Sarah Connor are they sending Terminators back earlier and earlier in her life to screw with the timeline? Otherwise they're in complete reboot/remake territory and I'm not sure how much the existing fans would stand for that. Having said that, if they want to start fresh and make a movie for today's young adults, all bets are off really. It's tough to draw that line - a movie series born in the 80s is likely to become ever

Otherwise they're in complete reboot/remake territory and I'm not sure how much the existing fans would stand for that. Having said that, if they want to start fresh and make a movie for today's young adults, all bets are off really. It's tough to draw that line - a movie series born in the 80s is likely to become ever less relevant to people who are 17+ at the moment. Do you keep propping up the old movie's timeline or just say "let's make the whole terminator concept from scratch so that it makes sense to today's young adult audience". I can appreciate why folks from my generation get pissed about remakes and reboots, but I can see the logic behind it too. I know the great movies from 20+ years ago still exist and anyone can watch them, but if you're talking ongoing franchise sometimes you just have to accept the updates or let it go. Personally, I'm always up for another Terminator movie as I like killer robots. I'm sure there's a smart way to appease most audience members, but original cast members don't get any younger. There comes a point where including the likes of Arnie will just become a millstone around the neck of the franchise, as much as I love his classic movies. Such is life.

Cast it new.

Clearly going for a younger demographic. So they can do what they like with the franchise because the audience won't be as familiar with the earlier films. Or won't really care.

I love Terminator

But I hate that this is happening. It sounds like a reboot. They should have continued the story from Salvation. Salvation wasn't perfect but now we won't get the payoff of the series which is to see John Connor become the savior of mankind and lead the victory over the machines. That's what every Terminator movie has set up and now we won't see it because the series is being rebooted (at least it appears that way).

I agree. Salvation wasn't perfect but it was entertaining and a whole hell of a lot better than T3. I want to see a continuation of the story after Salvation that culminates in John leading a raid on a Skynet compound to get to the time displacement equipment where he sends Kyle to 1984 and an already reprogrammed T-800 back to 1995. Followed by another T-800 barging through the door and blowing John away only for Kate to reprogram that one and send it back to 2003. Now the timeline has come

Now the timeline has come full circle and the studios could do a reboot/sequel that goes back to 1984 because things wouldn't have to match up then because Kyle tells Sarah that he id from one possible future.

If you're going to get young actors for these roles, you could probably do a bit better but you could do soooo much worse, I'm down with these.

Out of the choices I'd go with Margot Robbie for Sarah Connor. I loved her in Pan Am, aside from that though, Scorcese chose cast her int he lead female role in Wolf of Wall Street so you know she's got to be pretty talented and I'm expecting her career will take off once that hits theaters.

From the list I would pick Emilia Clarke for Sarah and Garrett Hedlund for John. But I feel like Hedlund's name gets thrown around alot for a lot of casting choices.

One article after another after another and on and on, they're all remakes, sequels, reboots, book to film adapts, film to tv and vice fucking versa. I'm done, great shame will come to all those who wanted more who couldn't let go and move forward. " Fuck everything Sarah and John and Kyle fought so hard for just keep em coming because I want to buy another house." Not my dollar bills again, these will be for something better than the studio, the actors, everybody else. And again fuck you, I'd

So is this terminator 5, or is it a reboot. Either way, I'm not sure why Sarah and John would be close to the same age, unless there are a lot of flash backs/flash forwards.
After seeing warm bodies, I thought Teresa Palmer would be a good Sarah Conner.

These seem like Fourth Tier Options

I would imagine an awesome property like the Terminator series could get some better talent than this; if they're going big name Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a pretty solid choice for John. If they're going lesser know for John Connor I would be interested in Jamie Bell, Michael Pitt (good T2 John Connor vibe), Hunter Parish (Weeds). I also think Matt Lauria (Friday Night Lights) has big time talent and could be a really cool, fairly unknown choice for John Connor.
I guess if somehow Sarah

I guess if somehow Sarah Connor can be of a similar age I would be interested in Rooney Mara or Mary Elizabeth Winstead.
Personally I would like to see lesser known actors that can act but fit the previous incarnations of their characters. I go with and Rooney Mara and Matt Lauria. Interested to see what my fellow Schmoes think.

And yes Clarke is insanely hot but her build just doesn't scream badass or even whisper it. I wouldn't mind seeing her in a role but she would be horribly miscast as one of the most physically imposing, tough, ass kicking women of all time. But once again she is very hot...felt like I needed to mention that twice...Seth MacFarlane gets big props for pulling that!

Emilia Clarke is stupid hot, but I'm not sure I could see her in the role of Sarah Connor though she is better than the other two choices. I don't really know much about the two up for the role of John Connor though.

People only think Clarke is badass because she has dragons on a TV show. If you look at her, she looks like she hasn't worked out in her life; there is NO muscle mass there. Larson is spunky, I like that choice.
