The next installment in the Terminator franchise, appears to be moving one step closer with each passing day. At this time we will just be going by the title Terminator: Genesis, until it is either confirmed or changed entirely.
So, with that, we have just received some major casting news for the latest installment.
According to Deadline, Emilia Clarke (pictured right “Game of Thrones”) will play Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genesis. She will once again be re-teaming with director Alan Taylor, as they have previously worked together on Game of Thrones.
She joins Jason Clarke, who is currently in negotiations to play her son John Connor, as well as joining the previously announced Arnold Schwarzenegger.
According to the site, the story involves a trip into the future, but I guess we will just have to wait patiently for more details regarding the plot as there are a slew of rumors circulating as of late.
The film is set for a release this July 2015.
So, what do you make of Emilia Clarke playing Sarah Connor? Think she can transition into a total badass?
