“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 has the news, reporting that Clarke joins 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.”
Okay well this is interesting, while Jason Clarke is a good actor and I’ve liked what I’ve seen him in, Emilia Clarke is a WAY more interesting casting choice. Most people will know her as Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones and anyone who has watched that show knows how great she is in there. She is not only SUPER gorgeous, but Clarke also has a great screen presence, can be intimidating, commanding and extremely emotive. I feel like she’d be a good fit for Sarah Connor considering what the character stands for, I just hope she does a good job considering how good Linda Hamilton was back in Terminator 1 & 2.
