Australian actor Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty,” “White House Down”) is in early talks to play the role of John Connor in the upcoming reboot “Terminator: Genesis” at Skydance Productions, Annapurna Pictures and Paramount Pictures.
Alan Taylor is directing the new take on the property which will see Clarke’s Connor in the familiar role of the leader of the rebellion against the Skynet artificial intelligence system which is bent on wiping out the human race.
Emilia Clarke (“Game Of Thrones”) is the apparent frontrunner to play his mother Sarah Connor. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to reprise his cyborg role in the film which is expected to involve time travel into the future.
Laeta Kalogridis and Patrick Lussier wrote the script and David Ellison and Megan Ellison are producing.
