Felicity Jones

We have known for a while now that Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) was going to be directing the first stand-alone Star Wars film, due for release in 2016.

So with filming likely to begin soon we are starting to see some casting for the film with the first cast member being confirmed as the excellent Felicity Jones (The Theory of Everything and Amazing Spider-Man 2). At the moment there is no confirmation on who she will play, but expect it to be a very significant role in the Star Wars universe, possibly a young Princess Leia?

At this moment in time we have no story details for the film, its thought to be a heist film, but at this stage all we know is that Chris Weitz has came in to work on the original script by Gary Whitta.

As for casting rumours for the film, the latest is Michael Fassbender to play Boba Fett and Aaron Paul to play a young Han Solo, but as nothing is known about the film, everything is treated as a rumour at the minute.
