"Game of Thrones" actress, Emilia Clarke, who is most-famous for playing the role of Daenerys Targaryen aka the khaleesi has officially signed on to play Sarah Connor for the upcoming Terminator reboot film currently titled, "Terminator: Genesis". This would make the second "Game of Thrones" actress to play Sarah Connor 'cause Lena Headey played the character for "The Sarah Connor Chronicles" TV show.
More on the story, here.
The question is will she be starring alongside, Arnold Schwarzenegger? Will he be back to say the famous catchphrase, “Ah’ll be back” again? It is still not yet known whether or not Arnold will be down but he has expressed interest in returning in some form so anything is possible. Never rule out a leading role return for Arnold as the Terminator ’cause that can be a possibility too. Now that Arnold’s done with politics, I can see him returning to the Terminator on a full-time schedule. I’m almost 100% certain that the Terminator re-boot was written for Arnold to return. He’s already set to return as Conan but we’ll soon know if he’s ready for the Terminator. I won’t see the movie if Arnold’s not gonna be in it.
While I hate re-boots… I think the Terminator series deserves a re-boot ’cause “Terminator: Salvation” was garbage. Lets hope they do a better job, next time around. The Terminator deserves a great movie again! The story of John Connor and Skynet deserves to be told better.
More great news, Linda Hamilton who played Sarah Connor in the first two Terminator films, just might return to the fourth installment to reprise her iconic role, in McG’s “Terminator: Salvation”. Only thing is though, Linda herself won’t be appearing on screen at all, she’s only doing voice overs. As in, telling the story of her son John Connor.
From MTV Movies Blog:
Hopefully Linda will agree to do it. I remember over the years, she made a vow that she wouldn’t do another Terminator movie without Jimmy Cameron. Maybe she changed her mind somehow?
If they can’t get her, maybe McG will go after Lena Headey from the “Sarah Connor Chronicles” TV show?
Linda Hamilton who played the original Sarah Connor in the first “Terminator” and “Terminator 2: Judgement Day” maybe in talks to have a role in the new Terminator film, “Terminator Salvation” but Hamiltons reps and lawyers responded to those rumours and shot them down that it’s not true.
The closest that she’ll ever be in the film that Linda Hamilton may have a picture taken for a photo that John Connor will have in the film, the film crew are trying to get her permission to take photos of her.
Don’t fret, Lena Headey who is the star of the “Sarah Connor Chronicles” TV series will not replace Linda Hamilton for the new film because that isn’t McG’s plan. Ever since James Cameron left the Terminator franchise, Linda Hamilton herself made a vow that she will NOT star in a Terminator film unless Cameron was helming it. She will not do a Terminator film without him.

Even though Linda may not be in the new film at least McG should have flashback scenes of Sarah Connor from the first two films, that be sweet to see flashbacks.
