Chiwetel Ejiofor Says "We'll Just Have To See" About His Possible Role In STAR WARS EPISODE VII

The actor, who delivered arguably one of the greatest performances of this generation in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave, will neither confirm or deny earlier rumours about him having a role in J.J. Abrams' Star Wars Episode VII. Hit the jump for his comments in full!


"Who knows? We'll just have to see," Chiwetel Ejiofor teased when Yahoo! Movies asked him if there are any truth to the rumours that he will have a role in Star Wars Episode VII. Following the news that Michael Fassbender has met with director J.J. Abrams and reports last year that Benedict Cumberbatch will be in the movie, this would very much make it a 12 Years a Slave cast reunion (no bad thing seeing as that has been hailed as one of the greatest films ever made). "I don't know is really the only answer I can give you. I'm a huge fan of that world and JJ, but I don't know. I can't tell you. There are a lot of things that would be great to play and to investigate if I spent enough time thinking about it, but really it's to try and see what actually does happen, what materialises... and figure out what the great stories are." Do you guys think we'll see him in Star Wars Episode VII? Be sure to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place!
