This is just a rumor for now but it's coming from Deadline. They are a pretty credible source and they are not famous with just posting random rumors on the web. So watch out for these...
JJ Abrams has got a big table read tomorrow with the cast in London, and so he’s finally going to be forced to fess up shortly. There have been more rumors on this one than any film in recent memory, and here’s the latest.
I’m hearing that Inside Llewyn Davis star Oscar Isaac is in line for a major role, as is Adam Driver and Attack the Block’s John Boyega, both of whom have been rumored. There is also a young girl, and that might be Maisie Richardson-Sellers, an Oxford-trained actress whose casting has been rumored in recent weeks.
The new cast members will join returning Star Wars alums Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill. The big surprise, I’m told, is that Ford has a gigantic role in the first of the next three films. Disney hasn’t been commenting on any of this, and today’s no different. Stay tuned.
Also Zac Efron made a brief comment on his possible involvement with the movie:
“I don’t know. I have no idea on that. There’s irons in the fire, so to speak. I don’t like to talk about anything too early because, you know, it takes a while to get these things done right. Who knows?”
