Casting for Terminator 5 is starting to heat up and today we’re hearing that two frontrunners have emerged for the role of Sarah Connor. Previously, we were told that Brie Larson, Emilia Clarke and Margot Robbie were all up for the part. Now, however, it appears that only two remain as Deadline reports Larson and Clarke are the frontrunners for the much sought after role.
Larson is coming off a very strong performance in Short Term 12 and is a hot commodity in Hollywood right now. Clarke, of course, plays Daenerys Targaryen on HBO’s Game of Thrones and since frequent Thrones director Alan Taylor is all but confirmed to be helming Terminator 5, many suspect that she has the edge here.
Both actresses are on the rise and either of them would be an excellent choice to play Sarah Connor. While I personally think that Clarke could do a better job (perhaps that’s just the Game of Thrones fanboy in me speaking), I ‘d be happy with Larson too, as she is an incredibly talented actress and has proven to be very versatile.
Terminator 5 is set to hit theatres on July 1st, 2015. Tell us, who do you want to see take on the role of Sarah Connor, Emilia Clarke or Brie Larson? Let us know in the comments section below.
