The Terminator 5 casting race is starting to heat up even more, with a new report that reveals Emilia Clarke is the front runner for the Sarah Connor role, with Brie Larson also a top contender. We reported last month that both actresses were in contention for the role, alongside Margot Robbie.
Emilia Clarke reportedly has the edge over Brie Larson since the actress previously worked with director Alan Taylor on the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, where she plays Daenerys Targaryen. Both actresses have tested for the coveted role, although it isn't known when a final decision will be made. Brie Larson is coming off of critically-acclaimed performances in Short Term 12 and The Spectacular Now. Emilia Clarke will next be seen on the big screen in Dom Hemingway.
With Arnold Schwarzenegger set to reprise his role as the titular Terminator in Paramount's 2015 reboot of the mega-popular franchise, it's looking like the series may be able to find its way back on track after all. But who will fill out the other iconic roles? That's what we're here to talk about today.
As reported by Deadline, "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke (pictured) and The Spectacular Now's Brie Larson are still being considered for the role of Sarah Connor. Paramount and director Alan Taylor are apparently looking closely at both actresses, who have tested for producers and are the current frontrunners.
The plan is to cast the Sarah Connor role before Kyle Reese and John Connor, both of whom will be characters in the new film.
Stay tuned for more details about this developing story!
Set for a July 2015 release, the latest Terminator will be the fifth installment of the storied movie series, »

There’s still a whole lot we don’t know for certain about the upcoming Terminator 5, otherwise known as Terminator (2015). However, Arnold Schwarzenegger is confirmed to reprise as the titular killing machine (even though he’s now 66 years old), drawing from a screenplay written by Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) that will reboot the sci-fi franchise’s convoluted timeline, in order to setup for a potential new stand-alone movie trilogy.
Alan Taylor has left news of him directing the film as “rumor” for the time being, though that hasn’t prevented the Thor: The Dark World helmer from saying that – in the purely-hypothetical situation that ...

With a new entry in The Terminator series on its way, fans are pretty anxious to see their beloved franchise get back on track and back to business. Some of them even have some pretty neat ideas on just whom Arnie should do battle with in the next entry in the franchise.
Case in point: a new Facebook petition to get Jean-Claude Van Damme a role in the new Terminator film! In retrospect, this could actually work. Not the petition maybe, but if you think about it, Van Damme plays great bad guys, and he's proved that he still has it. Honestly, we're all for this.
Jcvd himself caught wind of this movement and released the following response. "This is amazing! Thanks to the wonderful fan group behind this nice page. The fan-made CGI galleries you have created are incredible. Answering your questions, I would definitely love to join The Terminator franchise with Mr. »

Earlier in the week we heard that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (21 Jump Street) and Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) are under consideration for the role of Sarah Connor in director Alan Taylor's (Thor: The Dark World) upcoming Terminator reboot, with Boyd Holbrook (The Host) and Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy) also up for John Connor.
Well according to The Hollywood Reporter, there's truth in the rumours that Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson are set to test for Sarah Connor, while Garrett Hedlund is actually under consideration for the part of Kyle Reese, with Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) also said to be in the mix. However, Taylor has apparently identified his number one candidate for John Connor, with the site reporting that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to succeed his The Dark Knight Rises co-star Christian Bale in »

With a new entry in The Terminator franchise on its way, fans are pretty anxious to know who, if anyone, from the original series will be coming back to do battle with the machines. Today we have a clearer picture.
THR reports that director Alan Taylor (the truly badass Thor: The Dark World) is prepping to begin testing actors and actresses for the sci-fi feature project, which is being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures, and Skydance Productions. The testing will begin next week, with Taylor seeing Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now), as well as another actress vying for the part of young Sarah Connor. Margot Robbie’s name has also surfaced in connection with the role.
Taylor will also be searching for his young Kyle Reese, the man who will father John. Those actor tests will occur at a later date, but insiders say Garrett Hedlund »

Patrick Lussier and Laeta Kalogridis are writing the script for the film which is said to be the first of a new trilogy, and is allegedly revolving around John Connor going back in time to save a young version of his mother Sarah from a Terminator.
SchmoesKnow is the one reporting the rumor today, saying that Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones"), Brie Larson ("21 Jump Street") and Margot Robbie ("The Wolf of Wall Street") are up for the role of Sarah, while Garrett Hedlund ("Tron Legacy") and Boyd Holbrook ("The Host") are in the running for John.
How solid is this? Frankly all five names are likely on the "potential casting list" of various projects in development (Hedlund in particular has either just missed out, »

Today we have a report that actresses Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Brie Larson (Short Term 12) and Margot Robbie (About Time) are up for the coveted Sarah Connor role, while Garrett Hedlund (Inside Llewyn Davis) and Boyd Holbrook (Out of the Furnace) are in contention to play John Connor.
What's interesting is that the male and female actors being considering for this mother-son duo are all roughly the same age, which could hint that there are several time jumps within the sequel.
Back in June, an unconfirmed report revealed that the story would take place in the late 1940s or early 1950s, with Arnold Schwarzenegger playing a human sent back to protect Sarah Connor's parents, before she was even born, »
Exclusive: Mythology Entertainment, the growing production company run by Brad Fischer, Laeta Kalogridis and James Vanderbilt, has hired Jon Silk to the post of executive vice president of Production and Development. He will help the two-year old company handle a growing volume of film, TV and theater projects, and he will hunt for more properties to develop. Silk comes there from Lin Pictures, where he was senior vice president of Production and co-produced Gangster Squad. He was a former director of Development at Benderspink and started as an assistant to producer Scott Rudin. “Jon is an extraordinarily talented executive whose experience, relationships and taste we have long admired,” said the Mythology founders. “We couldn’t be more excited to welcome him to the Mythology team and look forward to working together with him as we continue to build our slate and company.” Mythology most recently produced the Roland Emmerich-directed White House Down for Sony, »

"I'm still officially going to call it a rumor. I'm under the personal policy to say it's a rumor" he tells Slashfilm this week whilst out doing the "Thor" publicity rounds.
"We all love the first two [Terminator movies] and I actually went back and watched them again and my respect level only went up. I think there is another famous franchise that had a wonderful beginning and then turned a little bananas.

Last month, we reported that Alan Taylor is in talks to direct Terminator 5. While doing press for his Marvel Phase Two sequel Thor: The Dark World, the filmmaker wouldn't confirm that he has signed on yet, although he did say that talks are progressing.
"Funny thing was it came out really early, a reminder of what the blogosphere can do. I had one conversation, didn't tell anyone and then all of a sudden, Boom, it was online the next day. So my agent said, 'You probably should know [this is gonna come up].' It's progressed a lot since then, but I'm still officially going to call it a rumor. I'm under the personal policy to say it's a rumor."

Paramount has announced that Terminator 5, from Skydance and Annapurna Pictures, has been re-scheduled to July 1st, 2015.
Summer 2015 appears to be the biggest blockbuster season ever, so it is only natural for the movie studios to tinker with release dates as much or little as possible to get the most of the box-office.
Walt Disney Pictures started the machine by moving Edgar Wright’s Ant-Man from November to July 31st, 2015 and took Joachim Rønning and Espen Sandberg’s Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales off the 2015 calendar completely. Then Universal Pictures also made their move when they announced that Jurassic World will be released on June 12th, 2015. Now it’s time for Paramount Pictures to play around with their biggest title of the 2015 season.
Nonetheless, it is an interesting move from the studio. Being only a five day shift, the title is re-scheduled from a weekend without »

Paramount Pictures announced today that its highly-anticipated sequel Terminator 5 has moved up five days from June 26, 2015 to a Wednesday opening on July 1, 2015. As of now, it is the only movie slated for release on that date, although, ID Forever - Part 1 and an untitled animated project from Illumination Entertainment are scheduled for release two days later on July 3, 2015. However, we reported earlier this month that ID Forever - Part 1 may be pushed to a 2016 release date.
Arnold Schwarzenegger is attached to star, although no plot details have been confirmed, except that this is the first of a stand-alone trilogy. We reported in June that the actor will play a human who is sent back through time to protect the parents of Sarah Connor »
It’s not even 2014 yet but we figured it’s a perfect time to share the news that the Terminator is due to return in July 2015 to the big screen for its reboot. Why an iconic brand is already due this is sensibly unknown but logically it can set itself for a whole new franchise.
We’d like to think it’s an artistic twist on the story and who can knock progress but, at this stage, it’s a strange concept. However, it’s all due to happen and we’re expecting a whole new trilogy from Paramount that’s kick off on July 1st, 2o15. I suppose the advantage of calling a date so early is that you hope to grab the big Sci-fi spot for the summer and hope it all goes according to plan.
According to our various sources, the only other definite at the moment »

Terminator may be back with Game of Thrones' Alan Taylor at the helm. The director of the upcoming Thor sequel via Disney, is in talks to helm the latest Terminator film for Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures, sources have told Variety. There are no details on the plot at this time, and whether Arnold Schwarzenegger will have any part in the film at all, although that's highly unlikely. David Ellison produces via Skydance alongside Annapurna's Megan Ellison. The script comes from Patrick Lussier (The Eye, Scream 3, Drive Angry, Apollo 18) and Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island, Pathfinder, Alexander). »
When we talked to Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor at the D23 event last month, he admitted he was tired after a long production and editing process. But it doesn't look like the Game Of Thrones veteran is scaling things down for his next film. If anything, he’s going even bigger, entering talks to take on the new Terminator movie.According to Variety, Taylor is chatting with Paramount, Skydance Productions and Annapurna Pictures about the project, which is still largely secret.So far what we mostly know about the new take is that Terminator 5 (or whatever they call it) will essentially reboot the mythology and launch a new trilogy, though of course that could all change by the time it hits the screen. Arnold Schwarzenegger keeps insisting he’ll be back, though we don’t yet know in what capacity that will be.Laeta Kalogridis and »
Alan Taylor, who is putting the finishing touches on Thor: The Dark World, has been targeted as the director of The Terminator reboot being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance. Taylor is in negotiations to direct the movie, which is hoping to restart the franchise created by James Cameron that helped launched the career of Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played a killer cyborg from the future.

What we know about the upcoming new Terminator movie, which is sometimes referred to as a reboot and sometimes as a sequel, could fit inside a single lightbulb at the "Tech Noir" nightclub. The movie is happening, and now has a director and everything, but details about the story are nonexistent, as writers Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier work on the script. But now that Game of Thrones and Thor: The Dark World veteran Alan Taylor is on board, we may have our best hint yet at where the next Terminator film is headed-- and I'm not sure I like it. Few franchises have transformed as much over their lives as the Terminator films, which started with 1984's The Terminator as a slick, sci-fi tinged thriller and eventually turned in 2010's Terminator: Salvation, which involved a CGI Arnold Schwarzenegger and a robot heart transplant. The great leap into big »
The trouble behind-the-scenes of Marvel’s Thor: The Dark World doesn’t seem to have scared off Skydance Productions, Paramount and Annapurna Pictures as director Alan Taylor is negotiations to helm the forthcoming Terminator reboot/sequel. There is no plot details currently available but the film will have a screenplay by Drive Angry’s Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. The James Cameron-created futuristic cyborg franchise is to receive a reboot of sorts and the beginning of a new trilogy that is expected to still feature Arnold Schwarzenegger in some capacity.
This new project is expected to shoot next year with a summer 2015 release date currently eyed. We’ve yet to see if Taylor can make the step up from television hit series like Game Of Thrones to blockbuster movies but we’ll soon find when his Thor sequel is released on the 30th October.

Alan Taylor's is a director whose profile is on the rise, with stellar work on Game of Thrones under his belt and Thor: The Dark World nearing release. After that, he's in need of a new project and it would seem that Paramount, Skydance and Annapura Pictures have something in mind for him.
It's being reported that Taylor is in talks to direct the Terminator reboot for them, which would be quite the challenge. Not only would he be facing the inevitable scepticism that surrounds reboots but he'll also be in charge of one of the larger franchises in cinema.
