If the official announcement of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII due any day now, the rumor mill seems to be taking one last dying gasp over who may be in the project.
Deadline is repeating the rumor that Adam Driver is in up for a major role and adding the names Oscar Isaac (Inside Llewyn Davis) and John Boyega (Attack the Block). Both names are interesting additions and I would think that they would bring something exciting if cast.
Also being reported is that of the returning castmembers from the original trilogy, Harrison Ford’s Han Solo will have the biggest of the roles in the film.
Common belief is that Disney and Lucasfilm will announced Episode VII‘s cast on Sunday, May 4th – aka Star Wars Day – in advance of filming starting later in the month. If so, does that lend credence to the names being reported here or is it just some agents trying to get their clients’ names out there on the back of this project? We’ll find out in the next few days.
