Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor's Terminator reboot is really coming together. Deadline reports that Game of Thrones' Khaleesi (otherwise known as British actress Emilia Clarke) beat out Brie Larson to play Sarah Connor in the fifth installment of the formerly Arnold Schwarzenegger–driven franchise. (The original Terminator will, of course, also be back.) Clarke will likely join Jason Clarke (Zero Dark Thirty's bad cop CIA operative), who is in talks to play her character's son, John Connor. And, just in case you were wondering: The Clarkes do not appear to be related in real life.
