Star Wars Episode VII: Jonathan Rhys Meyers to Star?

Star Wars Episode VII is still two years away, and the script has yet to be finished.

But that doesn't mean we can't speculate wildly about who will be in it!

A rumor is swirling that actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in talks to star in an unspecified role in Star Wars Episode VII.

Fresh off of Star Trek Into Darkness, J.J. Abrams is turning his attention to the only sci-fi franchise that can top Trek.

Michael Arndt is writing the script, which is rumored to have a female as the lead. That means that Meyers would most likely be playing a supporting role.

Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, and Mark Hamill are also expected to reprise their roles for the new film, which takes place a few decades after the events of Return of the Jedi.

The plot will supposedly center on the children of the original protagonists.

Star Wars Episode VII is set to be released in 2015, so we've still got a long way to go.
