According to Production Weekly, Alan Taylor and Paramount’s upcoming ‘Terminator’ movie is to be titled ‘Terminator: Genesis.’ Very little little is known about the project to date. The latest (unofficial) info surrounding the film was that Taylor and the studio are looking closely at Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson to play the role of Sarah Connor. Connor was played by Linda Hamilton in the classic movies directed by James Cameron. The character is the future mother of John Connor, who grows up to be the leader of the human resistance in the war between humanity and cyborgs.
Both actresses have tested for the producers, and are said to be the frontrunners. Emilia Clarke apparently has an edge, and that would not be surprising. Before Alan Taylor helmed ‘Thor: The Dark World,’ he directed Clarke in HBO’s ‘Game Of Thrones.’ She, of course, plays the awesome dragon-commanding heroine Daenerys Targaryen in the HBO series, and has demonstrated the mettle to capably play one of the screen’s most formidable heroines. Expect more casting news shortly.
