Emilia Clarke Starring in Terminator Reboot

Deadline has revealed that "Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke is venturing out of Westeros to face off against Skynet as Sarah Connor in the upcoming "Terminator" reboot, "Terminator: Genesis."

Best known for her role as Daenerys Targaryen, the Khaleesi and Mother of Dragons, Clarke is a relative newcomer to American audiences. The part of Sarah Connor was a much sought after role, which eventually came down to two actresses; Brie Larson and Clarke.

Clarke will be joining Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is returning to the title role, and will be reuniting with director Alan Taylor, who has also worked on "Game of Thrones." Jason Clarke (no relation) is currently in talks to play her son, John Conner. Being quite a few years older than his possible onscreen mother, the storyline is rumored to be taking a few trips into the future.

Filling the kick-ass boots of Linda Hamilton,  will be no easy task, but Clarke has proven to audiences that she is one tough lady. Paramount is set to release the film in the summer of 2015.
