Harrison Ford’s “Star Wars” Role Beefed Up?

A big “Star Wars: Episode VII” announcement is closing fast and so word is beginning to leak out as to who might be involved as Deadline reports that a big table read is taking place today with members of the cast in London.

The site claims “Inside Llewyn Davis” star Oscar Isaac is in line for a major role, along with mentioning the previously rumored Adam Driver (“Girls”), John Boyega (“Attack the Block”) and newcomer Maisie Richardson-Sellers.

The biggest reveal of the article? While it says all three of the original stars are back, apparently “Harrison Ford has a gigantic role in the first of the next three films” – suggesting he has more screen time than Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.

That’s not all though. Actor Zac Efron spoke with UK News 5 today promoting “Neighbors” and was asked if he was involved in the upcoming “Star Wars” film. He said:

“I don’t know. I have no idea on that. I don’t know. There are irons in the fire, so to speak. I don’t like to talk about anything too early, because it takes awhile to get these things done right. Who knows?”
