While making the publicity rounds for José Padilha‘s RoboCop Reboot, Gary Oldman was asked if there was any chance he might join the Star Wars Franchise. You’re gonna love his answer.
They’ve called, yeah, I’m more cynical about it (casting) now, I believe it when I’m on the plane home. You know, the deal isn’t done (until then). But yeah, they’ve inquired.
Sounds like the wheels are turning in the background and we might just see Oldman enter the Star Wars Franchise. Think about it, he’s been so many great franchises; Batman, Harry Potter, Planet of the Apes, and now RoboCop, it just follows that the powers that be in Star Wars would want him.
While these talks go on, we can gleefully speculate on what role he might take, Sith or Jedi, human of alien? OMG, let him play a GUNGAN!!!
The movie is scheduled to hit the big screen on December 18th, 2015. Here’s the video of his answer.
