Oldman, Efron Called About “Star Wars”

Gary Oldman recently spoke about the “Robocop” remake with the British press and was asked if he will take on a role in yet another major franchise – specifically if he’s up for a part in “Star Wars: Episode VII”. He responded:

“They’ve called, yeah. I’m more cynical about it (casting) now; I believe it when I’m on the plane home. You know, the deal isn’t done (until then). But yeah, they’ve inquired. I mean, Planet of the Apes, Harry Potter, Batman and…Star Wars? Bloody hell…”

Meanwhile Zac Efron spoke with MTV recently about rumors of his involvement in the J.J. Abrams-directed film. He says: “I just went and met with [producers]. So I don’t know. It would be cool. I love [the Star Wars movies], I love them, but… who knows?”
