Deadline.com broke the exclusive news that Emilia Clarke will play Sarah Connor in the reboot of the Terminator franchise. This should have been the obvious choice as the next Terminator film will be directed by Game of Thrones’ Alan Taylor and well... Clarke plays Daenerys Targaryen on Game of Thrones.
Deadline is also reporting that James Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) in negotiations to play her son John Connor. We don’t know much about the film, however it will all tie to a new TV series that is in the works.
“The TV series will follow a critical moment from the first Terminator film (1984) and, where the film’s story goes one way, the upcoming series will take the same moment in a completely different direction. As the rebooted film trilogy and the new TV series progress, the two narratives will intersect with each other in some surprising and dramatic ways”.
