The Dark Knight Rises Star Hardy Being Eyed For Terminator Reboot

Terminator

Tom Hardy, who played Bane in The Dark Knight Rises, is being eyed by Thor: The Dark World director Alan Taylor to play John Connor in the reboot of Terminator, due in theaters in 2015, The Hollywood Reporter claims.

The trade also reiterates rumors that kicked off yesterday that Taylor will begin screen-testing in earnest for the film next week, with Game of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke, Brie Larson and another unidentified young actress vying for the role of Sarah Connor. Margot Robbie’s name has also been floated in connection with the role.

Kyle Reese, Sarah's love interest and the man who will father John, has a lot of the regular suspects for this sort of role coming up, including Garrett Hedlund, Boyd Holbrook, Nicholas Hoult and Taylor Kitsch.
