Emilia Clarke is Sarah Connor for TERMINATOR Reboot
Said to be one of two finalists for the role last week, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has won the role of Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot. Deadline reports that Clark is set to join the already-attached Arnold Schwarzenegger with Jason Clarke nearly set to play a later version of Sarah Connor’s son, John Connor.
The first in a stand-alone trilogy, Terminator will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are attached to write the screenplay.
Alan Taylor, who has previously worked with Emilia Clarke on the hit HBO fantasy series, is directing the new film, which is slated to hit theaters July 2, 2015. This is a dream collaboration as we have seenthat both Taylor and Clarke clearly work well together. With Clarke showing her tougher side in the latest season of Game Of Thrones I can definitely see her portray the iconic heroine Sarah Connor with ease. The only question now is what stage in her life will we join her at? Then there are the questions such as, how much will this connect with the other films? What version of Arnie’s Terminator will we get in this version? Then there is the most important questions for a lot of fans out there, will Summer Glau make a cameo? Sound out below on your thoughts of the Game of Thrones star inclusion in the Terminator mythology. I think it’s a good omen.
