Larson, Clarke for Terminator?

Brie Larson and Emilia Clarke are rumoured to have made the shortlist to play Sarah Connor in the new Terminator film.

Don Jon's Brie and Game Of Thrones star Emilia are the final two actresses in line for the role, having nudged About Time's Margot Robbie out of the running, reported Deadline.

Deadline also claims that Emilia "has the edge" over Brie for the part, having already worked with director Alan Taylor on Game Of Thrones.

Alan, who directed Thor: The Dark World, is already on board to take the reins on the reboot of the sci-fi franchise, which is expected to be released in summer 2015.

Tom Hardy is being eyed to play human resistance leader John Connor, following Alan's interest in the actor.

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 action star 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.

Brie, last seen in Joseph Gordon-Levitt's directorial debut Don Jon, is winning acclaim and prizes for her performance in indie drama Short Term 12. The 24-year-old is also starring in The Spectacular Now alongside Shailene Woodley and musical Basmati Blues with Scott Bakula.

Emilia, famed for playing Daenerys Targaryen in Game Of Thrones, was previously seen in Richard Shepard's drama Dom Hemingway opposite Jude Law.
