Zero Dark Thirty’s Jason Clarke is in negotiations to play the part of John Connor, Sarah’s son. Arnold Schwarzenegger is also expected to appear in the film, but little else is known about the project at this early date.

The role of Sarah Connor holds a firm place in pop culture history. Linda Hamilton originated the role of Sarah Connor in James Cameron’s The Terminator and Terminator 2: Judgement Day, while Clarke’s Game of Thrones co-star Lena Headey also portrayed the waitress-turned-warrior in Fox’s Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, which aired for two seasons.
