Rumor: 'The Force Awakens' Gets New Cast Member, Episode VIII Gets Production Designer

By: Benjamin Hart

All of the news and excitement surrounding The Force Awakens teaser trailer coming this Friday almost made us a miss an interesting bit of cast & crew news for both the upcoming Sequel films. Firstly, the BBC's entertainment correspondent Lizo Mzimba, who spoke with Mark Hamill a while back, tweeted that Jessica Henwick has joined the cast of The Force Awakens. Henwick will also be playing "Nymeria Sand" in Season five of Game Of Thrones.

Also, according to Variety, Rick Heinrichs has signed on as production designer on Episode VIII, which will be directed by Rian Johnson. Heinrichs' resume ranges from 1996's Fargo to 2011's Captain America: The First Avenger and the soon-to-be-released Big Eyes by Tim Burton

While both sources are reliable, we'll have to file this one as a rumor until we get an official confirmation from Lucasfilm. Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens comes to theaters December 18th, 2015 and Episode VII is expected to hit the big screen sometime in 2017.
