Brie Larson and Margot Robie also linked with Sarah Connor role
Game Of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke is being lined up for a new Terminator movie, according to reports.
Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen on the HBO show, has been linked with the role of Sarah Connor in the planned reboot of the sci-fi franchise, although Deadline also reports that Short Term Twelve actress Brie Larson and Margot Robie have also been discussed for the role.
Clarke is thought to be the favourite for the part due to her previous work with Game Of Thrones director Alan Taylor, who will helm the project. Paramount Pictures announced the reboot in June and and revealed that it will be the first in a new stand-alone trilogy of Terminator movies. The reboot has a script by Laela Kalogrodis (Shutter Island and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) though no plot details are known at the moment.
Paramount has yet to confirm what role – if any – Arnold Schwarzenegger will play in the film though the actor has said on several occasions this year: “I’ll be back.”
Schwarzenegger originated the iconic role in 1984’s Terminator and returned for 1991’s Terminator 2: Judgment Day and 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines. A fourth instalment, Terminator Salvation, followed in 2009 without Schwarzenegger, who was then serving as Governor of California.
