New “Terminator” Cast Coming Together
The cast of Terminator: Genesis seems to be falling into place.
Most recently it was announced that J.K. Simmons is in negotiations to play a detective who has been following the story of Sarah Connor for more than thirty years.
Portrayed by Linda Hamilton in director James Cameron’s first two Terminator installments, Sarah Connor is the mother of John Connor, leader of the resistance against the extremely intelligent computers which waged and won a massive war against mankind.
This time around Ms. Connor will be played by Emilia Clarke, while Jason Clarke (no relation) takes on the role of John.
Arnold Schwarzenegger will, of course, become a Terminator.
The movie, which is due to start shooting this spring, will be directed by Alan Taylor, who previously directed, among other things, Thor: The Dark World and episodes of TV’s Game of Thrones.
