Adam Driver To Play Han & Leia’s Son?

When word first broke that “Girls” actor Adam Driver was linked to a role in the upcoming “Star Wars: Episode VII,” at the time it was suggested he was up for the role of a villain – possibly a Sith Lord.

A new report at Jedi News though claims that Driver is actually playing the son of Han Solo (Harrison Ford) and Princess Leia (Carrie Fisher).

The report says the character is not a Sith, but he does get seduced by the dark side (much like his grandfather Anakin) and so much of this first film’s main plot revolves around attempts by the original trio of cast members to save the character.

Filming on the J.J. Abrams-directed film begins this week in Abu Dhabi.
