Game of Thrones actress Emilia Clarke will play Sarah Connor in the Terminator reboot that will be helmed by Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor.

Emilia Clarke Cast In 'Terminator'

Taylor has previously directed Clarke in a number of episodes of Game of Thrones. Incidentally, Clarke’s castmate on the HBO medieval fantasy series Lena Headey also has a Terminator connection. Headey played Sarah Connor in the TV show Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. The role was first played by Linda Hamilton on the big screen in the feature directed by her ex-husband James Cameron. For the reboot, Clarke beat out 21 Jumpstreet's Brie Larson and Margot Robbie.

Reprising the role of the Terminator, which he originated in 1984, will be Arnold Schwarzenegger. Jason Clarke, meanwhile, will step into the shoes of John Connor. The part of Kyle Reese, John Connor’s father, has yet to be cast.

The Terminator reboot is slated to hit theaters July 1, 2015. It’s intended to be the first film in a stand-alone trilogy produced by Paramount Pictures, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions.

Clarke will next appear in Dom Hemingway, which is scheduled for release April 4, 2014, opposite Jude Law.
