In a genius bit of casting by Paramount Pictures and director Alan Taylor, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is now officially on board to play 'Sarah Connor' in the upcoming fifth instalment of the franchise which is apparently titled Terminator: Genesis. Check it out!

Emilia Clarke's name was brought up several times when the shortlist for the actresses being looked at to play 'Sarah Connor' in Terminator: Genesis were reported, but Deadline now confirms that she's signed on to play the character. It apparently came down to her and Brie Larson, with both actors auditioning for producers. This reunites Clarke with Game of Thrones director Alan Taylor, while it's thought that the actress will be joined by Dawn of the Planet of the Apes star Jason Clarke as 'John Connor' in a storyline which the site says, ""involves a trip into the future." Variety adds that Garrett Hedlund, Nicholas Hoult and Boyd Holbrook are being looked at for 'Kyle Reese'. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also set to return. How do you guys feel about this news?

She would have been a better Lois Lane.

Sounds like someone is pissed off about the Galdot as Wonder Woman complaints?

Paramount wanted Brie Larson and Alan Taylor wanted his GoT gal Emilia Clarke. I guess he won.
typicalfanboy - 12/13/2013, 3:51 PM
she fine. i guess they are doing the end of the sarah connor chronicles where john goes to the future, but this time sarah goes to the future and meets an adult john and possibly reese?
JasonBlue - 12/13/2013, 3:55 PM
Smart choice, she's very likeable.
Reasonnnn - 12/13/2013, 3:59 PM
Daenerys Stormborn, The Conqueror, The Mother of Dragons...and now The Mother of the Leader of the Resistance (of the's on point!)

Terminator ruin already don't care anymore.
HellsHammer - 12/13/2013, 4:09 PM
No! Boo!
leXheX - 12/13/2013, 4:09 PM
Very nice! Now I've seen both Sarah Connors nude;)
symbiotics - 12/13/2013, 4:11 PM
I'm still trying to understand where in time is this going to happen, the has more or less the same age that Linda Hamilton had when she did the first Terminator, so is this gonna be before that? it's very weird, the only way it could work is if they develop some sort of alternate timeline, which could also explain why Reese is alive again
sameoldthing - 12/13/2013, 4:11 PM
She's a cutie.
This Sarah Connor isn't the tough chick from the T2 version.
Omarvls - 12/13/2013, 4:11 PM
BvS or Trinity or Justice League will destroy this movie in 2015
Ocelot - 12/13/2013, 4:12 PM
Just show us the war! dammit, just show us the damn war!. This will probably be worse than Salvation.
Platinum - 12/13/2013, 4:13 PM

Something like this in the movie could probably make it worthwhile. lol
Joementum - 12/13/2013, 4:15 PM
Hopefully this will improve her acting for GoT season 5
DelTorite - 12/13/2013, 4:18 PM
Alan Taylor probably bangs her.
TheFox - 12/13/2013, 4:18 PM
Wooo! They're not doing a stupid post-Judgment Day movie (which would be just about the most boring, drab, unappealing timeframe to set the films in)!

Wooo! They're casting someone decent as Sarah Connor!

Wooo! Arnold's back!

Hell, this film is actually starting to look a bit appealing...

ManofSteel23 - 12/13/2013, 4:20 PM
if this is a young sarah connor, then she will obviously be the scared women from the first film and... if she goes into the future how would she not remember that if this is the sarah connor before the very first film,unless they use the whole memory wipe shite
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 4:22 PM

She terminated my pants.

I kinda like her in this role.


JorL5150 - 12/13/2013, 4:27 PM
she can emancipate my proclamation.

Kalessi !!!! :)
The13thDoctor - 12/13/2013, 4:33 PM
Ironic since Lena Headey AKA Cersei Lannister was also Sarah Connor in the short lived TV show :P
TheOneAboveAll - 12/13/2013, 4:44 PM
Lena Heady was a great Sarah Conner... I wonder if they will swap experiences or stories about playing Sarah Conner later on?
Kingalanlvsyou - 12/13/2013, 4:48 PM
@The13thDoctor its a coincidence, not irony
Namor - 12/13/2013, 4:48 PM
Stubner - 12/13/2013, 4:49 PM
She would have been a dynamite Sue Storm.
Kingalanlvsyou - 12/13/2013, 4:52 PM
@13 it would be ironic if Emilia was in fact a terminator and was sent back in time to kill Lena Hedley
typicalfanboy - 12/13/2013, 4:52 PM
i love how hollywood won't let anything die without milking the bejeezus out of it.
InfiniteMonkey - 12/13/2013, 4:53 PM
Will we see her naked?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sephiroth - 12/13/2013, 5:02 PM
@crashrendar lol agreed
TheOneAboveAll - 12/13/2013, 5:07 PM
If Alan Taylor is feeling generous gods be graceful she will disrobe
ManCalledSting - 12/13/2013, 5:13 PM
Cool, she's absolutely gorgeous. Looks great naked too!
Starlight - 12/13/2013, 5:15 PM
So, maybe Sarah and Kylee from TERMINATOR 1's "age" travelling into the future this time and meeting their SON?...
ComicFan523 - 12/13/2013, 5:18 PM
Clarke's a good choice for Sarah Connor, although I'm not sure how necessary this movie is. Salvation was pretty meh.
Mrsinister - 12/13/2013, 5:27 PM
Awesome!!!!! I just got super excited for this movie!
Scorpion8125 - 12/13/2013, 5:41 PM

I close my eyes and see her naked every day.
