With Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his role as the titular Terminator in Paramount’s 2015 reboot of the mega-popular franchise, it’s looking like the series may be able to find its way back on track after all. But who will fill out the other iconic roles? That’s what we’re here to talk about today.
As reported by Deadline, “Game of Thrones” star Emilia Clarke (pictured) and The Spectacular Now‘s Brie Larson are still being considered for the role of Sarah Connor. Paramount and director Alan Taylor are apparently looking closely at both actresses, who have tested for producers and are the current frontrunners.
The plan is to cast the Sarah Connor role before Kyle Reese and John Connor, both of whom will be characters in the new film.
Stay tuned for more details about this developing story!
Set for a July 2015 release, the latest Terminator will be the fifth installment of the storied movie series, which began in 1984 as an indie distributed by Orion. Schwarzenegger starred in all but the last one, 2009’s wretched Terminator Salvation, in which he made only a digitally processed cameo.
The film’s plot details have not been revealed other than this is the first installment in a stand-alone trilogy. Skydance and Annapurna will co-finance along with Paramount with David Ellison producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier penned the script, and Alan Taylor will direct.
