Wheeljack35 - September 02, 2013
There is speculation Benedict Cumberbatch will be the first name unveiled by Lucasfilm for the cast of Star Wars Episode 7.

The actor will reunite with his Star Trek Into Darkness director JJ Abrams on the upcoming sci-fi film.

It is not known what role Cumberbatch would be playing as the plot has been kept top secret.

The Sherlock star has admitted before that he was a Star Wars fan as a child.

He told Total Film: ‘I was much more connected to [Star Wars] as a kid, in the way that a lot of kids are because it’s immediate storytelling, very simple – a beautifully, outrageously simple narrative in a way – and a wonderful three-act melodrama, opera. And I loved them.

‘I really, really loved those films and I always wanted to be Han Solo. Everything Harrison Ford did I just thought was the coolest thing ever.’

Cumberbatch is the latest name linked to the film along with Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron and Leonardo DiCaprio.They also said to have met with Disney to discuss parts in the film.

Star Wars Episode 7 is due out in 2015.
