New Casting And Plot Rumors For Star Wars Sequels

Bespin refugee - January 12, 2014
According to sources, J.J. Abrams is meeting with "everybody", to cast the upcoming films; in addition to Jesse Plemons (Breaking Bad), other names include; Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek: Into Darkness), Michael Fassbender (X-Men: First Class), and Hugo Weaving (The Matrix), among many others. There are also rumored plot details, including former writer Michael Arndt's' focus on the next generation giving way to Abrams' focus on the Original Trilogy cast, leading to numerous character rewrites and recasting. Casting rumors also include an Imperial commander (said to be Hugo Weaving's possible role) and the daughter, or granddaughter, of Obi-Wan Kenobi.

Episode VII Villain Rumors?

"Christie will play an antagonist. Specifically, John Boyega's commanding officer, who is angry at him for deserting and is trying to find him."



So...when did the Empire get so PC? Desperate times, I guess.



"The site speculates that Christie's part might have been gender-swapped in the face of disappointment over the film's initial extremely male-centric casting, considering an earlier rumour which suggested Benedict Cumberbatch was in talks to play an Imperial officer. "






"An update on the post muddies things a bit, with BD's sources saying the actress has, in fact, been training with a lightsaber, and that she could be a Sith (!)."

From now until....oh, say, the first SW 7 trailer comes out....if anyone ever wants attention for any reason, they can simply go online and say, "I have leaked footage of Star War Episode 7!"

Heavenly day...that would have been embarrassingly disastrous. Could you imagine? Even if they buried him in prosthetics and make-up, we would all be so distractingly aware of whose is, it would ruin whatever scene he was in. That was a huge dodged bullet in my opinion...


I'd imagine he would just jump up on a couch and start ranting anyways.
