Jason Clarke In Talks To Play 'John Connor' In TERMINATOR: GENESIS

Yep, it seems that really is the title they're going with. Anyway, Aussie actor Jason Clarke (Lawless, Zero Dark Thirty) is in negotiations to play the lead role of resistance leader John Connor in Alan Taylor's new Terminator flick. Read on for more.

According to Deadline, Jason Clarke, who we will see next in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, is in "early talks" (although depending on who you ask, it's a done deal) to play John Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot(?), which we recently found out would be subtitled "Genesis". The site also names Game Of Thrones beauty Emilia Clarke as the frontrunner to play Sarah Connor, but mention that Brie Larson is still in the mix. Now obviously this means that John and his mother will both be from different timelines, and the general consensus is that it must be John who travels back much the same way Kyle Reese (Michael Biehn) did in James Cameron's original - although that character is apparently in this new movie too! It's all a bit of a mystery for now, but we know Arnold Schwarzenegger is expected to return in some capacity. Paramount has set a July 1, 2015 release date.

He's honestly been great in everything I've seen him in. This could be good. Really good.

But Zero Dark Thirty was a horrible movie, made to push the lies of the government onto the dumbed down masses.
Reasonnnn - 12/11/2013, 8:47 AM
Lawless, The Great Gatsby and especially ZDT...this guy is legit actor, one of the best working right now to be honest

I loved brotherhood.

So this time John will be older then his mother that's weird. As for Jason he is a great actor in the movies I've seen him in. I just hope that lots of terminators end up in the past. Because if I can't get to see a great future war movie at least make the one in the past awesome.

This FRANCHISE SUCKS - just give us the Man vs Machine WAR!!!!! we dont care about the time travelling aspect anymore thats why we have X men. So an older John conner is going to go back intime and save the teenage version of his mom so stupid....better bring the Men in Black memory eraser because what this does is totally negate every Terminator film....

John Travolta is currently having himself rubbed down by a 18 year old male Masseuse.

I'd kick stars n' stripes in the bollocks for agreeing with the old man, but I'm fairly certain it'd cause a dimensional rift of some sort.

"Just.. don't hit the face. I'll play fair, if you do"

this is suspicious.

Those are the words FrenchCipher would use.

Let this series just die please. I'm getting tired of reboots/remakes.
FantasticSpidey - 12/11/2013, 9:37 AM
I dunno. Doesn't seem like John Conner to me. Great Actor though.

Wait-- you don't like tea, either? I think we found some common ground.

I might even let you borrow my ex. Good luck keepin' up with her, by the way.. you'll need it.

Giddy up, cowboy.

Heh, I'll call the french one "Le Chiffre".
TheIronStomach - 12/11/2013, 9:52 AM
I've actually met the guy. It was in Boston about 5 years ago in line at a Dunkin Donuts. I am a big fan of his work, especially in Showtime's "Brotherhood".
Totally humble down to earth guy. He said he hardly ever gets recognized (After 'Zero Dark Thirty' I imagine that changed). He's been in lot lately, I always catch him in small roles, in Lawless and Great Gatsby.

I think joining a franchise in denial of the fact its no longer relevant is a bad career move though. I don't doubt his abilities but bad writing and forced story kills all good performances.
TheOtherOne - 12/11/2013, 9:54 AM
Shit, I haven't met Gusto yet... Your universe's version can't be that much different right?
TheOtherOne - 12/11/2013, 10:00 AM
Well, we ain't too far apart then.
I'm guessing you have a stable job, a family and live in the gleaming metropolis Detroit as well?
jerryblake - 12/11/2013, 10:01 AM

i'm sure you're not

- stalking people
- lock them in your dungeon
- threatening them with your turtle
- threating them with your dildos
- dress up as a tranny on sunday night
- take meth
- drink a lot
- wonder what happened on sunday night once you weak up
on saturday morning

Jerry What sort of megalomaniac are you describing?
Umm... I got a pet turtle, does that count? And when I was a kid I always wanted to live in a castle and castles have dungeons...
