December 13th, 2013 by Irwin Fletcher Comments

Reported as being one of two finalists for the role only last week, Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke has won the role of Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot. Deadline is reporting that Clarke joins the already-attached Arnold Schwarzenegger with Jason Clarke nearly set to play a later version of Sarah Connor’s son, John Connor.

The first in a stand-alone trilogy, Terminator: Genesis will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are attached to write the screenplay. Alan Taylor, who has previously worked with Emilia Clarke on the hit HBO fantasy series Game of Thrones, is directing the new film.

The film is set to hit theaters July 2, 2015.
