FOX has found a leading lady for the high profile pilot "The Sarah Connor Chronicles," an extension of the big screen "Terminator" franchise.
According to the industry trade papers, Lena Headey will topline the Warner Bros. TV pilot, talking over the Sarah Connor role played by Linda Hamilton on the big screen.
"The Sarah Connor Chronicles," written by Josh Friedman, will focus on Sarah and son 15-year-old son John in the time after "Terminator 2: Judgment Day."
The pilot, to be shot early next year, will be directed by good luck charm David Nutter, whose pilot credits include "Roswell," "Supernatural," "Smallville," "Without a Trace" and ABC's upcoming "Traveler."
The 33-year-old Headey was seen last year in "The Cave," "The Brothers Grimm" and "Imagine Me & You." Other credits include "Gossip," "The Jungle Book" and, next spring, the highly anticipated "300."Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
