We know that casting is in full swing for Star Wars: Episode VII, but with a January production start looming, we still aren't any closer to finding out who is starring in this highly-anticipated adventure. Earlier today, British actor Jason Flemyng posted a photo to his Instagram account that features in illegible page from the actual screenplay. Take a look at the photo, along with his comments confirming that he is auditioning for an unspecified role.
"Pint of Stella and " Star Wars" script! That's me sorted till 5! Let me clarify!!! AUDITION!!!"
Back in late October, we reported that director J.J. Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan are taking over the screenwriting duties from Michael Arndt. It isn't known if the new writers have completed a draft yet, or if actors are auditioning from Michael Arndt's initial draft.
The 47-year-old British actor most recently appeared in X-Men: First Class, Solomon Kane and I Give It a Year. Since most of the casting breakdowns we have seen for Star Wars: Episode VII are for younger roles, it's anybody's guess who Jason Flemyng may be reading for.
