With Star Wars: Episode VII starting production next year, we should start hearing soon about who will be cast in one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the millennium. During a recent interview to promote her sequel Kick-Ass 2, Chloe Moretz threw her hat in the casting ring, even offering to give her phone number to director J.J. Abrams.
"I mean, obviously there's interest. It's Star Wars. I'd kill to be a part of that franchise, but I don't know. J.J., I'll give you my phone number. You can text me."
On the flip side, The World's End stars Simon Pegg, who worked with the filmmaker on Star Trek and this summer's Star Trek Into Darkness, and Nick Frost revealed they have no interest in joining the cast. Here's what Simon Pegg had to say, revealing he hopes the filmmaker doesn't resort to stunt casting.
"I don't want to be in Star Wars, I think it would spoil it. When I saw Star Wars when I was a kid, I saw a bunch of people I'd never seen before with some lofty, very respectable older actors in senior roles. I would hope J.J. doesn't stunt-cast the film. It would be great to get some new peeps in it, it would be amazing."
"I'd like to sit back as a punter and see what's going to come from J.J.'s mind."
Since Disney now owns LucasFilm, many are expecting casting announcements to be made next weekend at the studio's annual D23 Expo in Anaheim, California. Stay tuned for more updates.
