“Game of Thrones” star, Brie Larson and Margot Robbie are frontrunners for the lead
With “The Terminator” reboot being prepared for release in 2015, director Alan Taylor is auditioning actors in his search for the best fits. For the role of Sarah Connor, Taylor has set his sights on three actresses: “Game of Thrones'” Emilia Clarke, Brie Larson from “21 Jump Street” and Margot Robbie from “About Time.”Sarah Connor is the lead female character in the movie, a warrior and the mother of John Connor, the leader of the human resistance in the war against robots. In James Cameron's “Terminator” series, Sarah Connor was played by Linda Hamilton. For the new "Terminator" movie, Taylor reportedly believes that Emilia Clarke is perfect for the role, as she’s said to be really close to getting it.
Alan Taylor, director of “Thor: The Dark World,” is also trying to decide between Garrett Hedlung (from “TRON: Legacy”) and Boyd Holbrook (from Stephenie Meyer's “The Host”) for the role of Kyle Reese, father of John Connor and time traveler that fights the Terminator.
For the role of John Connor, humanity's savior, Alan Taylor is strongly considering Tom Hardy, villainous Bane from “The Dark Knight Rises.”
As promised, Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back to play his iconic role as the Terminator robot. Schwarzenegger appeared in the first “Terminator” movie from 1984, in the follow-up from 1991 “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” and in “Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” from 2003.
“Terminator 5” is said to be “the springboard for a new trilogy of Terminator films,” according to The Mirror. The “Terminator” franchise was acquired in May, 2011 by Annapurna Pictures, who decided to produce another trilogy in collaboration with Skydance and Paramount.
The last movie, “Terminator Salvation” had the lowest ranking from the series and was the only movie in which Schwarzenegger did not appear, a brief CGI sequence not included. “Terminator 5” will be renamed and is scheduled for release in July 2015.
