The search for Sarah Connor narrows down to two

December 4th, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments

Following a story from last month about four possible actresses for the role , Deadline is now reporting that the search for Sarah Connor in the upcoming Terminator reboot is down to just two names: Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke and 21 Jump Street‘s Brie Larson. The site reports that Clarke may be the frontrunner for the role due to having worked previously with director Alan Taylor on many episodes of  Game of Thrones.

Casting is still in progress and they’re also looking to fill the roles of John Connor and Kyle Reese. The site says that Sarah will be cast before John or Kyle. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also set to return.

Terminator will be the first in a stand-alone trilogy, with Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) attached to write the screenplay.

Terminator is slated to hit theaters July 2, 2015.
