Now that they've decided on a title, it seems that casting is kicking off on the upcoming Terminator reboot, now officially known as Terminator: Genesis. According to reports, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby and the upcoming Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is in final negotiations for the role of John Connor, the leader of the Resistance.
At this point, it's unknown how big of a role John Connor will have in the reboot, with previous reports suggesting that the film will focus on Sarah Connor, with Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke said to be the front-runner to take over from Linda Hamilton (and fellow GoT star Lena Headey), but still facing some competition from Brie Larson (Short Term 12). Earlier rumours had suggested that Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) was being tapped for John Connor, while Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult »

News has been coming out of the Terminator camp hot and heavy recently, and it was just this past weekend that we found out the film has officially been named Terminator: Genesis. But who's going to be playing iconic character John Connor? I'll be right back, and then I'll let you know...
Just kidding. Read on for the skinny!

While we've been reporting on who might be playing Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot, Terminator: Genesis, we might have an actor for her son…Her much older son. According to Deadline, Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) is in talks to play John Connor, the robot-killing messiah-figure of the post-apocalyptic future. As we previously reported, Brie Larson (Short Term 12) and Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) are the frontrunners for Sarah Connor, and since they're both younger than Clarke by about two decades, there's clearly some time travelin' going on. I really hope that at one point, John Connor yells at his mom, "You're not the boss of me!" and runs to his room. Hit the jump for more. Terminator: Genesis is set for July 1, 2015. There's also a TV series in the works that will be based on the new movie. Last month, we reported that Tom Hardy was »

After hearing that a new Terminator TV series would like lead into the film franchise reboot at Paramount Pictures, we have our first official cast member in talks. The film is officially titled Terminator: Genesis (which sounds like a generic Resident Evil sequel title), and Deadline reports Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, The Great Gatsby, Zero Dark Thirty) is in early talks to play John Connor, the future leader of the revolution against the intelligence Skynet system and its army of cyborg soldiers wiping out humanity. No plot details have been revealed, but this reports says time travel to the future will happen. Otherwise, Emilia Clarke of "Game of Thrones" is currently the frontrunner to play Sarah Connor, but Brie Larson is also in the mix after the two names were revealed to be on the shortlist a few weeks ago. We were hoping maybe the »

This raises an interesting question about the potential story line, with the 44-year-old Jason Clarke playing the son and the 26-year-old Emilia Clarke and 24-year-old Brie Larson in contention to play his mother. Is John going back in time to save Sarah? Or will we see flashbacks? While no story details have been confirmed, the plot reportedly involves time travel into the future.
Jason Clarke is fast emerging as an outstanding acting talent.

Emilia Clarke of “Game of Thrones” and Brie Larson are up for the role of Sarah Connor. While Clarke has long been believed to be the front-runner, sources tell Variety that the two re-tested this week for the role, which may show that Paramount, Skydance and Annapurna are still undecided on who will play the part.
That decision is suppose to come by week’s end as it is expected that the studio will then test men — including Garret Hedlund and Nicholas Hoult — for the role of Kyle Reese sometime next week.
“Thor: The Dark World” helmer Alan Taylor is directing the film with Skydance and Annapurna co-financing along with the studio. David Ellison is producing for Skydance and Megan Ellison producing for Annapurna. »

According to Deadline, the search for a John Connor is now over as Terminator: Genesis has cast Jason Clarke in the lead role. Said to be a reboot, the film will be scripted by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier, with Alan Taylor behind the camera. Other than that, details on this one are pretty scarce. We do know, however, that casting for the role of Sarah Connor is currently underway and the frontrunners are Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson.
Though not a household name just yet, Clarke is well on his to the A-list. Starting with 2012′s Lawless, the actor has been on the rise ever since, snagging big roles in Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gasby and White House Down. He’ll also be seen in upcoming high-profile projects like Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Terrence Malick’s Knight of Cups.

We might still be waiting to hear about the new Sarah Connor (Emilia Clarke is said to be the front-runner, with Brie Larson still in contention too), but "Terminator 5" has found her on-screen son. While Tom Hardy was said to be the target for the role of John Connor (played by Edward Furlong, Nick Stahl and Christian Bale in the previous films), Skydance and Annapurna Pictures' reboot, "Terminator: Genesis," it's the actor's co-star in "Lawless," and the upcoming "Child 44," Jason Clarke who's won out, according to Deadline. The Australian-born Clarke's become an increasingly in-demand actor after his breakout role in "Zero Dark Thirty" last year: he popped up in "The Great Gatsby" and "White House Down" this year, plays the human lead in next summer's tentpole "Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes," and will star with Jake Gyllenhaal, Josh Brolin and John Hawkes in Baltasar Kormakur's "Everest. »

I guess you could assume a little about what Terminator 5, or Terminator: Genesis as it will apparently be called, as Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty) has reportedly landed the role of John Connor. Meanwhile, Emilia Clarke ("Game of Thrones") and Brie Larson (Short Term 12) are on a short list competing for the role of Sarah Connor. Considering John is Sarah's son and Jason Clarke is 44-years-old while both Emilia Clarke and Larson are both in their mid-20s it suggests just where exactly in time the franchise reboot may take place. Sounding as if a future John Connor may be sent back to save his mother. The film is already slated for a July 1, 2015 release with Alan Taylor (Thor: THe Dark World) set to direct and Arnold Schwarzenegger expected to return as his iconic cyborg character. Notable upcoming roles for Clarke include Dawn of the Planet of the Apes and Child 44, »

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. »
Jason Clarke of Zero Dark Thirty is in talks to play John Connor in Terminator: Genesis, a reboot under Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor, reports Variety. The role of Sarah Connor has Brie Larson and Emilia Clarke competing, and, although Game of Thrones star Clarke was thought to be the front runner for the part, the two apparently were re-testing this week for the Paramount Pictures, Skydance and Annapurna pic By the end of this week, or beginning of next, we'll know who won the part. After that, more men will be tested, this time for the part of Kyle Reese, with names in the mix like Garret Hedlund and Nicholas Hoult of Warm Bodies and Jack the Giant Slayer. It's most likely Hedlund would fit the part better. »

Due to be released in Summer 2015, the anticipated Terminator reboot has been on the cards for a good few years, and now it looks like it’s finally coming together nicely.
Following last month’s news about actresses testing for the role of Sarah Connor, Production Weekly’s Twitter has revealed that the title for the fifth instalment in the franchise is set to be Terminator: Genesis.
The reboot is set to be a time-spanning story that sees Arnold Schwarzenegger reprising his role as the eponymous Terminator, tasked with protecting Sarah Connor as she grows up. So, naturally, ‘Genesis’ seems like a very appropriate subtitle.
Brie Larson (Short Term 12), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), and Margot Robbie (About Time) were reportedly amongst those testing for the role of Sarah Connor, with Garrett Hedlund’s name thought to be on the short list for the part of Kyle Reese. »

This year’s Oscar race has had bloggers buzzing about the most cutthroat best actor category in years — with at least seven “locks” for five slots — but there’s an even bigger logjam in the supporting actor contest. When the nominees are announced in January, the Academy won’t be able to avoid snubbing some of the best performances of the year.
The one sure bet for a nomination is Jared Leto, electrifying as a cross dresser with AIDS in “Dallas Buyers Club.” Leto picked up both the New York Film Critics and L.A. Film Critics prizes, and he could very well win the Oscar, which would thrill fans of “My-So Called Life” and his band 30 Seconds to Mars. That’s one way to keep the Oscars young, even if many Academy voters have never heard of Jordan Catalano.
