It has been a while since we have had any solid Terminator 5 news. revealed over the weekend that Alan Taylor (Game of Thrones, Thor: The Dark World) has had casting auditions for the role of Sarah Connor, a young Sarah Connor mind you. 

Thus far Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (Don Jon) and Margot Robbie (About Time) have emerged as front runners for the part. 

“Director Alan Taylor has already started screen testing the actresses for the role of young Sarah Connor in the prequel, in which Arnold Schwarzenegger will reprise his role as the title character. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Clarke and Larson will be tested next week, while sources tell the publication that producers are also interested in Robbie”.

What do you think Maniacs? Is a time trip back really necessary for the Terminator franchise?

I thought the rumored plot was that the Machines send a Terminator back to attack Sarah's parents or something and Arnold plays either a family friend or grandfather who fights to protect them. That could possibly work. But Arnold is now simply too old to be a T-800 again.

I don;'t know how you'd make sense of an older looking Terminator model. Do T-800 come in different models Unlimited (T1), a slimmer Standard (T2 & T3), and Factory Certified/Used (new T5)?

It's up to us to bury this Franchise if they don't go ahead with Terminator 5. If not, means we have to wait 10 more years to finally see the Resistance Destroy Skynet once and for all. Don't know about you but I'm not getting any younger. I Just can't go through a whole new Reboot with this shit!

 I would go for Amelia Clarke, just so two Game of Thrones actresses would have played Sarah Connor.

I guess they will use de-aging cgi tech on Arnold then?  I bet that will be the new trend.  Did not look quite right in X-men 3 for Magneto and Prof X.

I have always liked the Terminator movies, but this sounds a little crazy. A young Sarah Conor, not sure how that would work out. I actually liked salvation because it was a new story with no time travel, I would like to see a part 2 to salvation, a more origanial story. The time travel angel is overused in the Terminator movies.

I just wish they would make up their minds with this franchise. First, we were going to get a sequel that led up to Kyle Reese being sent to1984, which would have tied up the film series nicely. Then we were going to get a reboot, starting from scratch. Then they decide  to do a prequel, which really makes no sense.
