Following on from the news that Felicity Jones seems to have secured the female lead role in the Gareth Edwards-directed “Star Wars” spin-off film, actors Aaron Paul (“Breaking Bad”) and Edgar Ramirez (“Carlos”) have reportedly emerged as two potential candidates for the male lead in the project reports Heat Vision.
Paul was rumored to have already hopped onboard back in December, a rumour Paul himself wouldn’t confirm or deny last month. This is the first time that Ramirez’s name has been linked to the project.
Rumors continue to swirl about the film, from the inclusion of Han Solo and bounty hunter Boba Fett, to Jones’ role being that of “Star Wars Rebels” character Sabine Wren. Chris Weitz is currently polishing the script for the film ahead of a production start around late Spring/early Summer.
