Emilia Clarke is the new Sarah Connor
Hot off the heels that Jason Clarke would be the new John Connor, we now have official word that ‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke will be the new Sarah Connor. A while back, it was revealed that Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson were the final two candidates for the coveted role, but it looks like Clarke won out. For those of you doing the quick math or wondering how a 26 year-old is going to be the mother to a 44 year-old, remember that the Terminator franchise is all about time travel, so I’m sure it will make sense somehow.
This new Terminator film is set to be the first in a trilogy and Arnold Schwarzenegger himself is set to star in at least the first one. Details are sketchy at best, but more information should come along with additional casting announcements. I’m guessing a new Terminator is sent back to kill an even younger Sarah Connor, with a parallel story taking place in the future, but again, we don’t anything for sure. The first film is set to be directed by Alan Taylor, who also directed Emilia Clarke in ‘Game of Thrones’. (Deadline)
