A rumor drop? Why I never. Deadline’s Mike Fleming Jr. is today claiming that there’s a big table read going on in London tomorrow, which would fit with Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher being seen there. He also says that Ford’s role is “gigantic.”
But onward, onto the actors we’re not so sure about. Fleming says that Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) is “in line for a major role,” along with the much-reported Adam Driver and John Boyega, plus a young girl who could be played by Maisie Richardson-Sellers.
Meanwhile, The Hollywood Reporter’s Borys Kit says that Isaac was in negotiations, but “they halted because of a conflict with theatre commitments.” He seems to see Boyega as a bit more likely, and also hints about the Millennium Falcon’s smuggler hatches.
And finally, when asked about Star Wars recently, Zac Efron says he “doesn’t know” but he has “irons in the fire.” Not sure I’d count on that one, folks.
