Is One Of These Two Actresses The New Sarah Connor?

December 5, 2013

Deadline reports that Paramount Pictures and director Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World) want either Emilia Clarke (Game Of Thrones) or Brie Larson to play the role of Sarah Connor in the upcoming TERMINATOR film hitting theaters July 1st, 2015.

Both actresses have tested for the producers and are the frontrunners. Emilia Clarke is at an advantage since she worked with Taylor on HBO’s hit series Game Of Thrones. Meanwhile, Brie Larson has gained some buzz due to her work on the indie film circuit this year with Short Term 12 and The Spectacular Now.

In some new plot details, they report that Kyle Reese, played by Michael Biehn in the original film, will be a character in this version, as will John Connor, so it seems like a jump into the future might be part of the plot line. The completion of this franchise is expected to span at least two films. They are currently casting the Sarah Connor role before Reese and John Connor.

The script is by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to return.
