Emilia Clarke


The 'Game of Thrones' actress is tapped to play the role originated by Linda Hamilton in the classic movies directed by James Cameron.

"Terminator: Genesis" has officially found its leading lady. Emilia Clarke is confirmed to take on the role of Sarah Connor. She is believed to have won the coveted role against "21 Jump Street" star Brie Larson and "The Wolf of Wall Street" beauty Margot Robbie.

The mother of John Connor was previously played by Linda Hamilton in the classic movies directed by James Cameron. The coveted role was portrayed by Clarke's "Game of Thrones" co-star Lena Headey on its TV adaptation, FOX's "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles".

Jason Clarke is in talks to play John, the leader of human resistance against machines. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to reprise his role as his famous cyborg ally. Garrett Hedlund, Taylor Kitsch and Nicholas Hoult are reportedly vying to play the young Kyle Reese, who will father John.

The script is written by Laeta Kalogridis ("Shutter Island") and Patrick Lussier ("Drive Angry"). Alan Taylor ("Thor: The Dark World") is set to direct the fifth installment of the "Terminator" franchise. The reboot is expected to start production early next year for a July 1, 2015 release.
