Tom Hardy - Tom Hardy for Terminator reboot?

Tom Hardy is being eyed to star in the new 'Terminator' film.

The British actor is reportedly atop director Alan Taylor's wishlist to play protagonist John Connor in the 2015 reboot, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Ironically, the role was last played by Hardy's 'The Dark Knight Rises' co-star Christian Bale in 2009 flop 'Terminator Salvation'.

Meanwhile, 'Game of Thrones' beauty Emilia Clarke, Australian starlet Margot Robbie - who recently denied speculation of an affair after snaps of her and her married 'Focus' co-star Will Smith emerged online - and Brie Larson are being considered to play Sarah Connor.

The time-travelling movie will see Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator robot tasked with protecting Sarah Connor as she grows up and eventually gives birth to John, a highly important leader in a futuristic resistance.

Schwarzenegger is set to reprise his most famous role in the new films after appearing in three of the previous four 'Terminator' flicks - excluding the 2009 movie.

The film is being produced by Annapurna Productions, Skydance Productions and Paramount.

Taylor most recently directed Disney and Marvel's superhero blockbuster, 'Thor: The Dark World'.

The 'Terminator' reboot is due for release in July 2015.
