Casting rumour for John Connor in Terminator: Genesis

News Simon Brew 12 Dec 2013 - 06:42

Jason Clarke may step into the role previously played by Edward Furlong and Nick Stahl, in the upcoming Terminator: Genesis...

Earlier this week, we learned that the title of Terminator 5, the second cinematic reboot of the franchise, would be Terminator: Genesis. It's still expected to be Alan Taylor directing, following his success with Thor: The Dark World, and most of the casting rumours to date have centred on who will be playing Sarah Connor in the new movie (Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson are apparently candidates).

With regards the role of John Connor though, a name has finally entered the mix. And that actor is Jason Clarke, who it's been reported is now the front runner for the role.

Clarke will be seen in Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes next year, and the Australian actor has also been seen in the likes of Lawless, Zero Dark Thirty and The Great Gatsby.

Filming on the movie is set to start next month, and when we have more news, we'll put down our coffee momentarily and bring it to you.
