Jason Clarke in Talks to Play John Connor in the Terminator Reboot

Casting is still coming together for the project as it is reportedly looking to cast a new Kyle Reese, the father of John Connor, as well.

The first in a stand-alone trilogy, Terminator will be produced by Megan Ellison of Annapurna and David Ellison of Skydance. Dana Goldberg and Paul Schwake of Skydance will serve as executive producers. Laeta Kalorgridis (Avatar, Shutter Island) and Patrick Lussier (Drive Angry) are attached to write the screenplay.
 
The Alan Taylor-directed film is slated to hit theaters on July 2, 2015.
