Actresses Emilia Clarke and Brie Larson are the front runners to play Sarah Connor in an expected reboot of "The Terminator," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The celebrity newspaper said director Alan Taylor tested Clarke, of the hit HBO series "Game of Thrones," and Brie Larson, of "The Spectacular Now" in November for the iconic role made famous by Linda Hamilton.

Taylor directed Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World," which has racked up big hefty box office receipts and solid reviews since its release last month. The new "Terminator" is being made by Paramount, Annapurna Pictures and Skydance Productions.

"I have heard that Clarke has an edge, and that would not be surprising," wrote Mike Fleming Jr. of Deadline.com onWednesday. "Before Taylor helmed 'Thor: The Dark World,' he directed Clarke . . . in 'Game of Thrones.'"

"She, of course, plays the unforgettable dragon-commanding heroine Daenerys Targaryen in that massive HBO series, and has demonstrated the mettle to capably play one of the screen’s most formidable heroines as originated by Linda Hamilton in James Cameron’s first two films in the series," said Fleming continued.

The newspaper said Arnold Schwarzenegger will play a Terminator robot but no one has been set to play John Conner. The Hollywood Reporter noted that Tom Hardy, who played the menacing Bane in "The Dark Knight Rises" is on Taylor's "wish list."

"I've also heard that Kyle Reese, played by Michael Biehn in the original film, will be a character in this version, as will John Connor, so it seems like a jump into the future might be part of the plot line," Fleming wrote for Deadline.com on Wednesday.

The movie has a July 1, 2015, release date in a crowded – and competitive – summer that currently includes Marvel's second Avenger movie "Age of Ultron" and the "Man of Steel" sequel featuring Ben Affleck as Batman.

"The Terminator" series has proven big box office business. The four films – "The Terminator," "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," "Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines" and "Terminator Salvation" have made $819 million, an average $204 million per movie, according to Box Office Mojo.com.
