Have two more women hopped onboard J.J. Abrams’ “Star Wars: Episode VII” which just began filming in Abu Dhabi?
A report at Latino Review claims that there isn’t one but two major female roles left that have yet to be announced, one of which has gone to the previously rumored Maisie Richardson-Sellers. The actress has reportedly been spotted around the production.
The other has been linked to a fresh face – Katie Jarvis. British film fans will remember her as the young female lead who hooks up with her mother’s handsome but predatory boyfriend (Michael Fassbender) in Andrea Arnold’s 2009 drama “Fish Tank”.
There’s no indication about either of the roles these actresses might be playing. The site also says the rumor of Adam Driver playing Han Solo’s son is NOT true.
POTENTIAL MAJOR PLOT SPOILER AHEAD
Finally, the site says that Harrison Ford’s beloved Han Solo character will die in the film. Much like Alec Guinness’ death in “Star Wars: A New Hope,” his character’s demise will be a “motivating force” bringing a trio of new characters together, one of whom is Han’s child.
Ford previously wanted Solo to die in “Return of the Jedi,” and is said to be much more keen in getting “Indiana Jones V” off the ground in the next few years and can’t do that with commitments to further films in the “Star Wars” series. This way he gets to kill two birds with one stone.
