Tatiana Maslany joins the Sarah Connor shortlist for Terminator reboot

Earlier this month it was revealed that Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones) and Brie Larson (The Spectacular Now) had tested for the role of Sarah Connor in Paramount Pictures’ upcoming Terminator remake, and now The Hollywood Reporter has thrown another name into the mix, stating that Orphan Black star Tatiana Maslany has also auditioned for the role previously portrayed by Linda Hamilton (The Terminator, Terminator 2: Judgement Day) and Lena Headey (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles).

 There have been plenty of rumours circulating around potential casting for Terminator, which is set to be directed by Alan Taylor (Thor: The Dark World), with Tom Hardy (The Dark Knight Rises) said to be Taylor’s pick for the role of John Connor and Garrett Hedlund (TRON: Legacy), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men: Days of Future Past) and Taylor Kitsch (John Carter) said to be in the mix for Kyle Reese. Arnold Schwarzenegger will also be back although its not yet known whether he’ll reprise his signature role as The Terminator, with Dwayne Johnson (G.I. Joe: Retaliation) linked to the role of the cyborg killing machine.

Terminator is currently set for release on July 1st 2015.
