Zero Dark Thirty's Jason Clarke in talks to play John Connor in Terminator: Genesis

12.11.2013

In addition to some casting news, it looks like the fifth installment of THE TERMINATOR now has a fancy new title: TERMINATOR: GENESIS.

I haven't really let the title soak in but I've never been up in arms over any title from the franchise. Just give me a good movie.

On to the other half of the news, Jason Clarke (ZERO DARK THIRTY, THE GREAT GATSBY) is in talks to take on the role of John Connor, "the leader of the rebellion against the Skynet artificial intelligence system bent on wiping out the human race." I'm just going to throw this out there: Clarke was a great bad guy in WHITE HOUSE DOWN which is one of the best/worst movies to come out last year.

GAME OF THRONES' Emilia Clarke is still in the lead to play Sarah Connor with Brie Larson holding on to what may be a distant second. I liked the idea of ORPHAN BLACK's Tatiana Maslany for the role as well.

There's no additional word on the plot. The only thing that Deadline throws out there along with the above said news is that "Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to reprise his signature cyborg role in a film that involves time travel into the future."

Alan Taylor (GAME OF THRONES, THOR: THE DARK WORLD) is set to direct TERMINATOR: GENESIS with a release date of July 1st, 2015.

I would rather have the cast from the second movie reprise their roles, and throw in Michael Biehn as well, but that's not gonna happen. I REALLY hope this turns out well. I would love to see a great film, and a great tv series as well.

will you look at clark's face? nothing heroic going on in there. more suited to a serial killer role. i watched him in white house down and i kept wondering why he's still alive and not killed in the background 15 minutes after the shit hit the fan.

I'm still not sold on the idea of the reboot at all, but Jason Clarke as John Connor I can see. I think he's a great actor who did very well in Zero Dark Thirty and who made for a cool villain in White House Down (yes, I liked White House Down).

Nah.. I've would have gotten someone else. He looks too much like a villain. He looks as though he should be playing the terminator and not John Connor.

..and again, Emily Blunt should be playing Sarah

Jason Clarke would be a solid John Connor. I am very much enjoying the casting possibilities of this film so far.

Underrated actor. He deserved more praise for his role in Zero Dark Thirty and he would be an interesting Connor.

Seriously...

...I like the guy but they couldn't get Edward Furlong or Nick Stahl back as John Connor? At least we'd have some semblance of continuity. I'm not throwing Bale in the ring because I just can't see him coming back. In all honesty all I truly care about is seeing Arnold as the Terminator again.

I'm more concerned with the actual Terminator. Has it already been decided that Arnold will fulfill the role? I'd like some clever way of making that happen, but I'm not feeling very optimistic.

wrong...all kinds of wrong

Look dude is a good actor, but I am not looking for a receding hair line with a giant forehead that looks like he has been sitting on his couch eating munchies the last 10 years. I wish they could have kept Bale, but they are ruining this whole thing. They might as well cast the girl who just became wonder woman, my god!
