‘Game of Thrones’ star Emilia Clarke confirmed for ‘Terminator Genesis’

Paramount and director Alan Taylor reportedly have selected their Sarah Connor by casting the Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke.

Terminator close up photoDeadline reports that the deal is done after much speculation, Clarke “will play Sarah Connor in the Terminator reboot, re-teaming with director Alan Taylor, who has worked with Clarke in the HBO series Game Of Thrones.”

Clarke plays the dragon-commanding heroine Daenerys Targaryen in that massive HBO series, and is probably the most sympathetic of all vying to rule. Daenerys started as a shy sister of an mostly annoying king brother, but has evolved into a strong character.

This transition ties nicely to the lead character, made famous by Linda Hamilton in the original Terminator films.

Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is rumored to be the strong candidate to play her son, John Connor, the leader of the rebels against the machines.

Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hudlund has been rumored for one of the roles.

There is also news that there’s going to be a new TV series that will tie into the film.

Terminator: Genesis is currently set to open on July 1, 2015.
