The plot details for Terminator 5 are being kept under wraps but judging from this casting news, it’s going to be all over the place. First, it looks like they’re casting young for Sarah Connor. Emilia Clarke, Margot Robbie, and Brie Larson are all said to be testing to play the mother of the uprising. The interesting wrinkle is the news that Tom Hardy tops the wishlist to play John Connor. Does this mean that an adult John Connor will travel back in time and meet his pre-pregnancy mom? And isn’t he a robot now or something??
There’s also news that Nicholas Hoult and, for some reason, Taylor Kitsch are being considered for the role of Kyle Reese, the man originally sent back in time to protect/impregnate Sarah Connor. We’ll keep an eye for any plot descriptions but, honestly, this time travel stuff is already hurting our heads. (THR)
