Emilia Clarke to Play Sarah Connor in Terminator: Genesis

Chris Savage

Emilia ClarkeThe 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?

          3 was alright. I thought Salvation was decent.

          stop sniffing glue. 3 was horrid and salvation was a POS. Gee, conner needs a heart transplant you say? well let’s just throw this tarp up here next to this chopper to perform a 20+ hour surgery that requires a team of heart specialists and a massive array of support equipment to keep the patient alive. We don’t have any of that you say? well shit, a combat medic, this swiss army knife, and a few band aids is all i need. pfftt, what a waste of money that movie was. The only somewhat decent part of that movie were the subtle throwbacks to part 2 that amounted to about 90 seconds of screen time.

        Yah but come on its Hollywood they just need to make fresh ideas instead of rehashing the same storys

        I didn’t mind the last two so much. Obviously not up to par with the first two, but still not as bad as the Transformers or similar other Hollywood “sci/fi” flicks.

        isn’t she dead by now, i mean in that POS that was three john conner explains that mom bit the farm after making it to aug ’97, when he’s still a kid.

        I still enjoy the terminator movies damnit!!

        I personally like all of them…. Its entertainment not a documentary, geez who cares if the surgery is realistic or not?? I guess machines rising up to wipe out human life and time travelling are much more believable than an ill equipped heart transplant……
