Emilia Clarke’s Sarah Connor won’t be back for Terminator sequels

Game Of Thrones star says no more Terminator for her

It’s all a bit unclear as to what’s going on with Paramount’s Terminator: Genisys sequels at the moment, but one thing has just been made absolutely certain.

Speaking to Coming Soon, Emilia Clarke, who played Sarah Connor in Alan Taylor’s film, said that she definitely won’t be returning to reprise the role.

“No,” she said. “Can I say that? It’s okay. No. Uh-uh. But I have some very different roles coming up.”

Well, fair enough, it doesn’t get much more definite than that.

The fate of any more Terminator films is very much up in the air at the moment following a terrible box office performance in the US (less than $100 million) but a pretty beefy worldwide haul ($350 million). It didn’t make enough to make Paramount move straight into the next stage of their planned trilogy (which would have meant another one with the same cast in 2017), but it’s enough cash to make them think about the possibility of recalibrating and finding a way to move ahead.

Evidently, any forward movement will be without Clarke.

Terminator: Genisys also starred Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jai Courtney, Jason Clarke, JK Simmons, Byung-Hun Lee, Matt Smith and Courtney B Vance.
