UPDATE: Tom Hardy Wanted By Director Alan Taylor For 'John Connor' Role In TERMINATOR 5

<font color=red>UPDATE:</font> Tom Hardy Wanted By Director Alan Taylor For 'John Connor' Role In TERMINATOR 5

THR have confirmed that Emilia Clarke, Brie Larson and Margot Robbie will test for the role of 'Sarah Connor' in Terminator 5 next week, while also offering an update on the actors being looked at for 'Kyle Reese'. It also sounds like Alan Taylor is keen on The Dark Knight Rises' Tom Hardy for 'John Connor'!

Yesterday, Schmoes Know reported that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) were set to audition for the role of Sarah Connor in Terminator 5, and The Hollywood Reporter has now confirmed that the former two will indeed be testing next week. Robbie meanwhile has just "surfaced in connection with the role". The site adds that Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) IS on the short list for the role of Kyle Reese, but Boyd Holbrook (The Host) is NOT. Meanwhile, Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor's dream actor for the role of 'John Connor' is said to The Dark Knight Rises' Tom Hardy, but a meeting hasn't taken place as of yet. Arnold Schwarzenegger will also return, "as a Terminator robot in a time-spanning story that sees him tasked to protect Sarah Connor as she grows up." How do you guys feel about this news? Sound off with your thoughts below!

"Christopher Nolan's memorable Bane in The Dark Knight Rises"

Sure he is....

WTF [frick] this movie i like Hardy BUT he's already mad max
santoanderson - 11/8/2013, 5:50 PM
Good god, how many actors are going to play John Connor before they let this damn series die?
maninfinesuit - 11/8/2013, 5:58 PM
Another flavour of the month actor playing John Connor. How about we just get back Edward Furlong and throw some continuity in this bitch?
patriautism - 11/8/2013, 6:07 PM
@maninfinehat Obviously you haven't seen Furlong lately or you wouldn't have suggested him.

The dude needs well, a lot of work before he can play anyone that isn't a drug addict, partially homeless, or KD Lang

I'm confused with this series by now.
thewonderer - 11/8/2013, 6:09 PM
Tom Hardys Bane is a pop culture icon now. No gave a flying [frick] about Bane before Nolan revisioned the character.

[frick] the haters.
BIGBMH - 11/8/2013, 6:20 PM
I stopped having faith in the creative direction of this movie when I found out it would feature Sarah Connor. Move forward and finish the story. Don't try to reinvent things. It's just going to screw this franchise up more.
TheYoungMan - 11/8/2013, 6:22 PM
So Batman and Bane will have both played John Conner if this ends up happening.

And lol @ Dev7. Troll somewhere else.

This movie makes no sense. Plain and simple
JDUKE25 - 11/8/2013, 6:41 PM
They're making more??? Ugh...
BANE5000 - 11/8/2013, 6:41 PM
If Hardy plays him , I wouldnt have a problem with it

But here's an idea...How about Sabastian Stan as John Connor and Tom Hardy as Reese or even vice versa, Stan as Reese and Hardy as Connor.
Jobu - 11/8/2013, 6:44 PM
John Carter playing John Conners sperm donor sounds like a really great idea.
Jobu - 11/8/2013, 6:52 PM
Arnold Schwarzenegger will also return, "as a Terminator robot in a time-spanning story that sees him tasked to protect Sarah Connor as she grows up."

Why do I get the feeling half this movie will be the two of them taking turns changing each other's diapers.

Hollywood still too damn scared to showcase a "war" in films, there hasn't been a real war movie since Saving Private Ryan(which is what the final Terminator film should be), to give us a John Connor who's actually a general and making tough decisions, to see how he forced Skynet into desperation to point where they send Terminators back to kill him and his mother, to tie up loose ends and show us how Reese got sent back in addition to his relationship with Connor. But we wont get that, we'll get a watered down piss poor imitation/reboot that lacks the dread of the first film and try's to call itself "Terminator".
DVonShakari - 11/8/2013, 7:02 PM
Schwarzenegger is done!! I wonder who they'll model the new Terminator after? how about Arnold's love-child he had with his maid??? Beef that kid up...he's already got a killer jaw line....
Timerider84 - 11/8/2013, 7:06 PM
I'm starting to agree, they need to end this, just reboot the series. Have Dwayne Johnson as the Terminator but use a different model, because Schwarzeneger will always be the T-800 model 101. There is NO Terminator 5, only Terminator "insert whatever"
Timerider84 - 11/8/2013, 7:09 PM
@ SlaveMasterFlexXx and I want James Cameron back!!!!
l0rdleg0las - 11/8/2013, 7:14 PM
of all the Reese candidates I like Kitsch the most as an actor; But he doesn't fit the part. When I think of Kyle Reese I see Biehn as what Reese most looks like. Because of that I say go with Hedlund.
mctrinket - 11/8/2013, 7:30 PM
Isn't this franchise dead yet?
Mike89 - 11/8/2013, 7:30 PM
IMO this franchise is dead. They already ruined the ending of T2 with T3 and, Dont even get me started on that Piece of shit Terminator Salvation i literaly walked out of that jumbled mess. Unless James Cameron has any sense in his head to fix this franchise i have no interest in this movie.
ALmazing - 11/8/2013, 7:42 PM
I'm looking forward to not watching this monstrosity.
DVonShakari - 11/8/2013, 7:44 PM
Reboot this damn franchise already!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or come up with an original story!
Inhuman - 11/8/2013, 7:54 PM
They need to stop calling this Terminator 5 because if this was T5 we would have Bale coming back to play Connor and we would finally see how Connor becomes the leader of the Resistance and defeats the machine and finish the story that was established in T1. Instead were getting a stupid reboot.
SuperCat - 11/8/2013, 8:00 PM
He's already playing Mad Max. He should concentrate on making that franchise successful.

alecwright - 11/8/2013, 8:36 PM
Love Hardy, but let's put this franchise out of it's misery already.
Wolf38 - 11/8/2013, 8:59 PM
I am concerned. This franchise needs to me FORWARD. I don't imagine that there are hardly ANY potential viewers who want to see a Terminator (Arnold or otherwise) go back in time and deal with a pre-adult Sarah Connor. That basic scenario has been done to death.

As someone else said, this film should show a the war really progressing, see the T and Kyle being sent back, from the perspective of the future.

I like Hedlund and Hardy.
Wolf38 - 11/8/2013, 9:02 PM
And no Rock. I might actually cry inside if that happens.
BlackIceJoe - 11/8/2013, 9:02 PM
Why can't the movie just be about the future war? I really wanted one like what was shown at the beginning of T2.

There was Terminator Salvation but I was not a fan of that depiction.

So I would like a Terminator film like James Cameron wanted. But because the technology was not where he wanted it to be he brought the Terminators back in time. Now is the time for that movie.

Danbojohnj - 11/8/2013, 9:42 PM
Complete reboot,none of this T5 rubbish.
AUSSYACE - 11/8/2013, 9:52 PM
Lets just start the series off fresh now...

Get new actors and sign em up for 3 movie deals and that's it...

Simple Really...
yinyangpalms - 11/8/2013, 11:11 PM
We need new ideas not old ones. This is like bringing back the Ford Pinto or the Atari 2600.
Old outdated idea for a movie 30 years ago.
Rheynger - 11/8/2013, 11:20 PM
Does everybody forget about the arm that was in the gear in t-2? Because there is one loose end...
Morbius - 11/9/2013, 12:09 AM
Just bring back BALE!!!!!!!!!!!!
PeterDarker121 - 11/9/2013, 12:12 AM
EFF another 200 MILLION DOLLAR movie; bring back 'The Sarah Connor Chronicles' TV SHOW because they left a lotta brothas HANGIN' when they canceled it....
mgeoff88 - 11/9/2013, 12:35 AM
That sounds kind of interesting.

I still think they should make a Terminator movie about Skynet sending back a Terminator to try and kill Kyle Reese's father.

Take the focus off of Sarah and John Connor for once.
dracula - 11/9/2013, 12:42 AM
forget a reboot give us a sarah conner chronicles movie
