It's down to Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson for the role of Sarah Connor in Terminator 5.
When rumors for the casting of Sarah's character began, Schmoes Know reported that Margot Robbie (The Wolf of Wall Street) was in the running with Clarke and Larson.
It was then revealed that the threee actresses who were done auditioning for the role were Clarke (Game of Thrones), Larson (The Spectacular Now) and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black). With this most recent update, it seems like Maslany didn't make the cut.
It was previously confirmed that Arnold Schwarzenegger will star in Terminator 5 as a human with exceptional powers who is tasked with protecting the Connor family.
Tom Hardy is apparently being eyed for the role of John Connor. The filmmakers are also looking for a suitable fit for the character of John's father, Kyle Cleese.
It has been rumored that director Alan Taylor and Schwarzenegger want to hire the female lead first. Taylor has directed episodes of Game of Thrones, which Clarke stars in. He also recently directed Marvel's Thor: The Dark World.
Linda Hamilton played Sarah in The Terminator (1984) and Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991). Hamilton also lent her voice, although it was uncredited, for tapes Sarah recorded before the character's death in Terminator Salvation (2009).
Terminator 5 is scheduled for release on July 1, 2015.
