Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

^ I suspect they're gonna use time travel to have a "soft reboot" that still sort of fits with the previous continuity, kind of like JJ-Trek. The participation of Arnie strongly hints at that. He'll be the new film's "Spock Prime."

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

So... post-Terminator Salvation, which already established (not that anyone cared at the time) that Skynet is starting to develop tech earlier in the timeline than was originally the case, John Connor will have to go back to '84 to protect his newly-pregnant mother, thereby creating an alternate reality that wipes T2-3 from the timeline?

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

I actually liked Salvation but I find it hard to see any appeal in this. Incidentally, Cameron considered using time-travel to revive Reese for T2 but opted against it as it was a bit too Back to the Future. Looks like someone didn't agree with him.

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

Headey is the Sarah Connor to beat, IMHO. But if they're going to go ahead with this, I think they should steer clear of the alternate universe / soft reboot thing and just assert that Sarah Connor was born in the nineties or so. Arnie can cameo as her dad or something.

We don't know what the premise of the new film is. It's hardly facepalm time yet in terms of the storyline.

Doing that is a soft reboot.

She can compare notes on the character with her GoT co-star Lena Headly.
And Alan Taylor, one of their directors from the first two seasons of GoT, is helming the movie.

Isn't that just starting over? Reboot is such a stupid buzzword for films anyway.

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

Yeah, a hard reboot is when you completely ignore everything that came before and start over from scratch.
I'm a big fan of Clarke on GOT so this has me pretty happy. Honestly her and Alan Taylor's involvement are the only reason I have any interest in this whatsoever.

Re: Emilia Clarke cast as Sarah Connor in Terminator reboot

I normally don't have a problem with reboots, but I'm having a hard time imagining how they could possibly make the Terminator concept feel fresh and new again.

It involves a Terminator going into the past to kill either Sarah or John Connor. And... that's about it. The second best idea was turning the Terminator into a good guy, but that's already been done as well. I'm not really sure what's left.

Will this one introduce Robocop to the mix?

I think after 30 years everything becomes remake/reboot fodder whether it needs it or not.

The article implies that they'll be flipping it and bring Sarah to the future.
