Tom Hardy has been tipped for a role in the new Terminator film.
Director Alan Taylor is said to be keen on the actor playing John Connor in the reboot of the sci-fi franchise, according to The Hollywood Reporter's Heat Vision blog.
The filmmaker will start seeing potential cast members next week, and will be testing Game Of Thrones' Emilia Clarke and The Spectacular Now's Brie Larson as well as another actress for the part of Sarah Connor. About Time's Margot Robbie is also rumoured to be up for the role.
Garrett Hedlund has also been linked to the film, and is said to be in the running to play Kyle Reese, the man who will father John Connor.
Original Terminator star Arnold Schwarzenegger will be back in the new movie.
The actor played the cyborg assassin in three films released between 1984 and 2003, but didn't appear in the fourth film, 2009's Terminator Salvation, which starred Christian Bale and Sam Worthington.
The new Terminator is scheduled for release in 2015.
