Latino Review is saying today that Rachel Hurd-Wood (Wendy in 2003’s Peter Pan) has read for the role of “the daughter of Princess Leia (and presumably Han Solo.)” They also say that Ryan Gosling has declined the role they reported earlier… But that Alex Pettyfer (Magic Mike, I Am Number Four) is also “meeting,” possibly for the same role, which LR previously identified as Luke Skywalker’s son.
I have nothing against Hurd-Wood – she has the look, at least – but Pettyfer? Pass. Of course, even LR is hedging their bets on this one, so I wouldn’t go counting them in just yet.
They do, however, say that “major casting news” is coming very soon from Lucasfilm… Will we finally get some confirmation of Hamill, Ford and Fisher? Other returning actors? Or someone totally new?
