Hurd Wood, Pettyfer Up For "Star Wars"

Two more names have joined the casting rumor list for J.J. Abrams' upcoming "Star Wars: Episode VII".

"Peter Pan" and "Tomorrow When the War Began" actress Rachel Hurd-Wood reportedly went in for an audition to play the daughter of Princess Leia in the project.

Latino Review broke the news, and claim they "got it confirmed via representation and other solid sources". They also say she's the only one to have read for the part so far, but she's just the first of what will be quite a few.

The other named mentioned is British bad boy Alex Pettyfer ("Magic Mike," "I Am Number Four"). Pettyfer is likely auditioning for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son.

If speculation isn't enough for you though, don't worry. One major, and official, casting announcement for another role in the feature is imminent from Lucasfilm.
