Rumor: Michael Fassbender, Adam Driver, and Hugo Weaving are being considered for Episode VII


By Micaela Seekell

The Hollywood Reporter released an article giving three more names to the rumor of potential actors for Episode VII. Micheal Fassbender from X-Men: First Class, Adam Driver from Girls, and Hugo Weaving from Captain America: The First Avenger. 

There were also some new rumors for changes in the script. "Arndt is said to have focused on the offspring of Luke Skywalker (Mark Hamill), Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher), with the original trilogy heroes taking on supporting roles. Abrams, however, wanted Episode VII to focus on the classic trio of characters, so audiences could have one more chance to enjoy them before a fitting send-off. The new characters, the offspring, will now be in supporting roles, according to these sources, and take center stage in Episode VIII and IX. Some characters have disappeared from the Arndt script and new ones are being drafted."

And a role originally meant for a 20 year old male is being rewritten for a 40 year old. The artical also states "The latest bit to surface this week is that Abrams and Lucasfilm are now searching for a 20-something female actress who is either of mixed race or black. The rumor is that Obi-Wan Kenobi had a daughter or granddaughter."
