Terminator: Genesis Casts Latest Sarah Connor
Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke has been cast as Sarah Connor in the Terminator reboot, tentatively titled Terminator: Genesis.
Clarke, along with Brie Larson, tested for the part but sources say that the “Thrones” star was the early favorite. Sources said the studio was also interested in Margot Robbie, but she never read for the part. Clarke’s deal closed Friday.
“Thor: the Dark World” helmer Alan Taylor is directing the film with Skydance and Annapurna co-financing along with the studio with David Ellison producing for Skydance and sibling Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script.
Plot details have not been revealed other than the project serving as the first film in a stand alone trilogy.
“Zero Dark Thirty” star Jason Clarke began negotiations this week to play the iconic role of John Connor, the son of Sarah Connor.
