Australian actor Ben Mendelsohn is reportedly circling a key role in Gareth Edwards’ upcoming spin-off film “Star Wars: Rogue One” at Lucasfilm and Disney.
Mendelsohn’s name has been circling amongst executives this week but Disney has not commented on the possible casting. Felicity Jones is the female lead and Chris Weitz is writing the script.
Mendelsohn can be currently seen in the Netflix series “Bloodline” which debuted on the streaming service last week.
