Rumors are circulating that the upcoming Terminator reboot has Paramount and director Alan Taylor looking at either Emilia Clarke or Brie Larson to play Sarah Connor. 

It is believed that both actresses have tested for the producers, with Emilia Clarke emerging as the favorite. This news may not be surprising, as Alan Taylor, who directed Thor: The Dark World, previously worked with the actress on HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Clarke has demonstrated a phenomenal on-screen presence in Game of Thrones as the female heroine Daenerys Targaryen, and it would make her a perfect candidate to portray Linda Hamilton’s character from James Cameron’s first two Terminator films.

The Terminator reboot is expected for release in July, 2015.
