A new report indicates that two actresses are currently in the running for Sarah Connor in Terminator 5. They are Game of Thrones‘ Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson, who has been racking up some critical acclaim for her work in recent indie films.
According to Deadline, both actresses have already tested for the film’s producers.
Clarke plays the iconic Daenerys Targaryen in HBO’s Game of Thrones. Larson has made recent appearances in the indie movies Short Term 12 and The Spectacular Now, and had a role in 21 Jump Street as well.
Deadline adds that both Kyle Reese and John Connor may be characters in this film, so it could very well take place in the future. The continuity for the Terminator series is already pretty jumbled though, so it’s tough to say what a good spot to jump in with a new cast would be.
The film is currently on track for a July 2015 release date.
