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 »

There has been a lot of movement on Alan Taylor's upcoming Terminator reboot in the last week or so. First up, it was revealed that the title would be Terminator: Genesis. Then, casting rumours surfaced suggesting that the role of Sarah Connor was down to Game of Throne's Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson (21 Jump Street, Don Jon). In fact, all the casting up until now seemed to focus on Sarah Connor (we knew since the announcement of the project earlier this that Arnold Schwarzenegger would be returning), but now a front runner has emerged for the role of her son, and savior of the human race, John Connor. It is being reported that Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby, and next years Dawn of the Planet of the Apes) is in early talks to take the role. If he signs on the dotted line, he joins Edward Furlong, »

Not content with appearing in just one big science fiction franchise re-working, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ Jason Clarke now has his eye on fighting that other big threat to humanity: the machines. Clarke, probably best known for Zero Dark Thirty, is in talks to play John Connor in the Terminator reboot, Genesis.Thor: The Dark World (and Game Of Thrones veteran) director Alan Taylor is calling the shots, working from a script by Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier. The plot is largely being kept quiet, though it may well follow much of the basics of James Cameron’s original (wo)man vs. machine narratives with a few changes here and there (particularly if the intent is to launch a TV series to run alongside it).Connor, of course, is the heroic leader of the human resistance, the man who must help us battle Skynet and stop the »
Director Alan Taylor's Terminator: Genesis seems to be gaining a lot of momentum! This film development is actually on a roll! It seems everyone is now referring to the new Terminator films as a reboot, so I'll start referring to it as a reboot as well. There's a bit of really interesting casting news on the film that we have today. According to Deadline, Zero Dark Thirty star Jason Clarke is in early talks to play the iconic role of John Connor in the film.
You all know who John Connor is right? Just in case you don't or can't remember, he is the leader of the rebellion that fights against the Skynet artificial intelligence system that is hell-bent on wiping out the human race. You know what? If you don't remember, maybe it's time you watch the first two movies again.

Deadline is reporting that actor Jason Clarke is in early talks to play John Connor, the leader of the human rebellion, in the upcoming reboot of Terminator (rumored to have the subtitle, Genesis). The actor would join Edward Furlong, Nick Stahl, and Christian Bale, as actors that have famously played the character on the big screen. Clarke has been on quite a tear lately, following his role in Kathryn Bigelow’s super successful Zero Dark Thirty. The actor then appeared in The Great Gatsby, White House Down, and currently has six films in post-production- including Dawn of The Planet of The Apes.
At age 44, he would definitely be the most mature version of the character that we’ve seen to date, and this could offer some insight into the story they intend to tell with the new films. At this time, very little is known about the upcoming reboot, other »

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. The intense Australian actor is finally being given the opportunities to lead major box-office hits with upcoming roles in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and Child 44. This following impressive turns in this years Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby and White House Down. Fans of his are sure to be excited as he’s currently in final negotiations to lead upcoming franchise reboot/sequel Terminator: Genesis.
If a deal is reached, he’s take the role of John Connor in the time-travelling film that will split the timeline of the 1984 original film and allow it to follow as a brand new story, as well as play in the same universe as the sequels. Arnold Schwarzenegger remains attached to the film which is being directed by Thor: The Dark World’s Alan Taylor. Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson »

He hunted down Osama Bin Laden, so I guess saving the world from killer cyborgs shouldn’t be too hard. Jason Clarke, one of the stars of “Zero Dark Thirty”, is said to be “in talks” to play John Connor in Skydance and Annapurna’s “Terminator: Genesis”, the reboot of the franchise that will also feature a parallel TV series. “Thor: The Dark World’s” Alan Taylor is scheduled to direct the remake, currently set for sometime in 2015. If Clarke does sign on to play resistance leader John Connor, he’ll be joined by either “Game of Thrones’” Emilia Clarke (no relation to Jason Clarke) or “21 Jump Street’s” Brie Larsen, the two women said to be battling it out for the role of Sarah Connor, John’s mom. No word on the plot, but time travel shenanigans, of course, will be involved. Also involved will be franchise star Arnold Schwarzenegger in some capacity. »

Hard-working Aussie Jason Clarke made an impression on moviegoers in 2012's "Zero Dark Thirty," but "Terminator 5" could be his chance to break big. Clarke, who played a tough CIA operative in the Kathryn Bigelow drama, is up for the role of John Connor in a new take on this time-traveling franchise.
There's not a lot of information out there on how this film will fit into the "Terminator" universe, but it should be interesting to see how it plays out. Paramount and director Alan Taylor are still hashing out the details of who will play John's mom Sarah Connor -- it's split between Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson -- but things are looking good for Clarke. (It also helps that the buff actor already worked with producer Megan Ellison on "Zdt.")
Clarke's been busting his hump in Hollywood for years, so it's cool to see the actor's star continue to rise. »

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. »
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. »

Paramount and Annapurna’s 2015 Terminator reboot has been given an official title, with the new film set to go by the name Terminator: Genesis. The new film will apparently take the original as a starting point, before steering the saga in a whole new direction, with a number of sequels and a tie-in TV series also planned. As such, the new title fits the bill in a slightly generic way, although it’s vastly preferable to Terminator: Evolution, which was surely tossed around in at least one ideas meeting... The project is thought...

Heading to cinemas in the summer of 2015 is the big screen reboot of the Terminator movie franchise. It's not been confirmed as of yet that Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor is directing this one, but it seems that's the case. And we also learned the other day that plans are afoot for a new crossover television show as well.
As for the movie, it's all but assumed that Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be returning - he's certainly suggested as much - and other casting rumours keep swilling around. But what's emerged now is what looks like the title for the film. It popped up over at Production Weekly on its Twitter feed, and it looks as though Terminator 5 is going to be called Terminator: Genesis. »
