Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has just been cast as Sarah Connor, previously played by Linda Hamilton in James Cameron’s first two Terminator movies; The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. She’ll be under direction of Alan Taylor, who directed episodes for Thrones and recently Thor: The Dark World.
News of cast and crew being assembled for this new Terminator series has been slow but steady. It was announced only after the release of Terminator Salvation but was met with underwhelming praise from critics and fans. Originally distributed by Sony, it has been bought by Paramount and will be under production of Skydance and Annapurna Pictures (who helped produce The Master, Killing Them Softly and Zero Dark Thirty).
Jason Clarke is in talks to play John Connor and Arnold Schwarzenegger will return as the iconic T-800. The movie’s plot are still kept under-wraps but it is slated for a summer 2015 release.
