Kate Mara Tested For “Star Wars” Spin-Off

On Tuesday came word that Rooney Mara, Felicity Jones and Tatiana Maslany were all reading for the female lead role in Gareth Edwards’ upcoming “Star Wars” spin-off film due for release late 2016.

Late yesterday, Variety reporter Justin Kroll added that Mara’s sister and “House of Cards” actress Kate Mara has also apparently tested for the role. For the moment though, there are no details on the character or how the film ties into the existing “Star Wars” franchise.

Rumors appeared last month that suggested that the spinoff will center on a group of space pirates, including a young Han Solo.
