Been a while since we’ve had a nice, juicy, moderately outrageous Star Wars: Episode VII rumor to mull over.
Seems Latino Review is reporting that Zac Efron and Ryan Gosling are being courted by Disney for the new film.
The same source is also insisting that Gosling is up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son–no word on who Zac Efron is supposedly being considered for.
Last we heard, Disney had settled on seven main characters, and preliminary casting had begun–the assumption being that most of the roles would go to newcomers, with one or two reserved for big name stars.
I’m sure there’s no need for me to advise you all to assign VERY little credence to this information until official sources confirm it….But I’m going to do it anyway.
Keep a whole crapload of grains of salt handy, fellow nerds–it’s a long way to May 2015.
Oh, by the by, Latino Review also mentioned that Leonardo DiCaprio was, at one point, on Disney‘s radar for Episode VII–but he turned it down to star in Robotech (of all things).
I’m sure we’ll be back soon with more info on this–if there’s the slightest bit of accuracy to it.
