The latest word making its way around the Internet is that Saoirse Ronan has been reading for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII. Now, there’s a whole lot of road to travel between reading for a role, and signing a contract.

Latino Review‘s sources say that there are two female roles including a villain this time around. Ronan would fit well on either side of the Force, her work in Hanna and The Host are two excellent examples of her range of acting skills and her ability to take on action roles.

What do you think? I do find it interesting that Ronan turned down a role in The Avengers: Age of Ultron, perhaps Star Wars was in the back of her mind when making that decision? Probably not, but it makes one wonder who might have whispered in her ear.
Whatever the case, as soon as Nerd Bastards hears some news confirming the casting we’ll bring it to you here.
