Oscar Isaac Eyed For STAR WARS EPISODE VII; Harrison Ford Has "Gigantic Role" In New Trilogy

J.J. Abrams is hosting a table read for Star Wars Episode VII in London tomorrow, with the cast set to attend. The latest names to have surfaced in connection with the movie are Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver and John Boyega, while Harrison Ford's Han Solo will have a big role in the first of the new trilogy!

According to Deadline, Inside Llewyn Davis star Oscar Isaac is now being eyed for a major role in Star Wars Episode VII, as are previously rumoured candidates Adam Driver (Tracks) and John Boyega (Attack the Block). Oxford trained actress and relative unknown Maisie Richardson-Sellers' name has also resurfaced, and the site unfortunately has no word on who any of these actors will be playing. They do however reveal that, "The big surprise, I’m told, is that Ford has a gigantic role in the first of the next three films." That's definitely unexpected, but very welcome news! Expect to hear something official about the cast on May 4th, a.k.a. Star Wars Day. How do you guys feel about this news? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!

["The big surprise, I’m told, is that Ford has a gigantic role in the first of the next three films."]

Really; who's he playing?

This movie intrigues me, I have faith.
ManofSteel23 - 4/28/2014, 5:55 PM
Of course at least one of the main cast dies, maybe luke will go out by the end of 7,just like ben did in 4, but I doubt it

oh yeah.. that lightsaber wars thing
ComicsBornAndBred - 4/28/2014, 5:56 PM
Oscar Issac is an immensely underrated actor who should be A-List. He wold be a welcome addition imo to the Star Wars universe .

If Maisie Richardson-Sellers is playing Obi-Wan's granddaughter and not 1) a brand new character or two 2) Lando's daughter, then this movie is doomed before it even begins.

Oscar Isaac was incredible in Inside Llewyn Davis. That movie was snubbed a Best Picture nomination
Skintastic - 4/28/2014, 5:59 PM
Hopefully they adapt the Thrawn trilogy, they have so many great stories they could tell in the Staw Wars universe, if I see one more JarJar type character I'll be pissed. Hopefully now that Disney owns the material they will Kill it. Look what they've let Marvel do

Does Star Wars have the hype that Marvel and DC/WB have with their CBM

I just don't see it
DaVinci31 - 4/28/2014, 6:00 PM

I would've loved to see Han and Leia die "Watchmen-style" at the hands of some assassin or villain,

with Luke Skywalker taking on the responsibility of raising their twins.

I trust Abrams, though.

These movies are going to be the prequels on steroids.

hey look another rumor about a possible actor for SW VII

CaptainAmerica31 - 4/28/2014, 6:02 PM
If true, this cast is turning up nicely
DaVinci31 - 4/28/2014, 6:02 PM
Oscar Isaac is amazing, too, hopefully that's true. Not just because of his acting but because I can see him being an ally or a villain, or both? *hint hint* ;)

Wishful thinking, I know.

DrunkenNukem - 4/28/2014, 6:03 PM
Call me when they introduce Kyle Katarn in the films
Niklander - 4/28/2014, 6:04 PM

Skintastic - 4/28/2014, 6:08 PM
@omarvis, not sure but they sure have a crapload of books out
Skintastic - 4/28/2014, 6:10 PM
@combatwbat thats great
TheJokerMask - 4/28/2014, 6:12 PM
Oh man! i hope he reprises his role as Solo
breakneckbeck - 4/28/2014, 6:13 PM

With Harrison Ford still commanding a lot of Star power and Mark Hamill not exactly being the pretty boy he once was I'd say odds are Luke gets the Watchmen style death in the first episode and Solo continues on with the younger gang. Though I would probably like it better your way.
GuyRot - 4/28/2014, 6:14 PM
i wonder where ford landed. for all we know, he could be bleeding out of his ass. you never know the chances of weird shit happening to that dude.
breakneckbeck - 4/28/2014, 6:14 PM
Also Oscar Isaac is wonderful and would make a great villain, or (less likely) a great hero
SkywayTraffic - 4/28/2014, 6:15 PM
I'm seriously completely 100% out at this point. Should not have brought back the original 3 for anything more than a cameo. Such garbage.
Comedian03 - 4/28/2014, 6:15 PM
Wait, you're telling me, that the character that is arguably the most loved, the biggest fan-favorite, is going to have a major role in the movies that made him so?

DaVinci31 - 4/28/2014, 6:18 PM
Ol' Hamill isn't looking too bad, actually

Can't resist that Ford star power, though.
Starfox - 4/28/2014, 6:18 PM
Great Actor! Him and Adam Driver were actually in a Film Together Last Year: "Inside Llewyn Davis".
Hopefully they can reunite for Episode 7.
ForMeToPoopOn - 4/28/2014, 6:21 PM
Adam Driver was great in "My Giant"!

DaVinci31 - 4/28/2014, 6:23 PM

For a second I though you were going to recommend JT to be in the new Star Wars film.
DaVinci31 - 4/28/2014, 6:23 PM
Did someone say, Star Wars meme thread?

SauronsBANE - 4/28/2014, 6:24 PM
You thought Indiana Jones 4 was bad? This is going to be such a shame...

Skintastic - 4/28/2014, 6:26 PM
Is that giant our olympic swimmer/subway sandwhich salesman mike phelps
Skintastic - 4/28/2014, 6:27 PM

DrunkenNukem - 4/28/2014, 6:27 PM
