Gary Oldman In STAR WARS EPISODE VII? "They've Called"

Could we see the legendary Gary Oldman become part of yet another big sci-fi/fantasy franchise? The Robocop actor doesn't go into too much detail, but does admit that there's studio interest. Check out the brief video interview after the jump.

While he was doing press rounds for Robocop, Sky Movies quizzed Gary Oldman on whether there was any chance we'd see him in Star Wars - be it in Episode VII or one of the future spin-offs. And sure enough, the ever candid actor reveals that J.J. Abrams and/or Disney are interested in getting him on board in some capacity. Oldman admits that "they've called", but doesn't show any indication that he's agreed to official discussions - he also seems slightly hesitant about signing up to another huge franchise, saying that he's become "cynical" about certain types of roles. That being said, he doesn't rule anything out. Watch the vid for yourselves below.



Well, could you guys see Oldman in Star Wars? A Jedi? a Sith? Or another role entirely? Sound off in the usual place.
