Who better than the Sherlock Holmes to address the rumor of Benedict Cumberbatch being in the next Star Wars? So while promoting a few projects at the Toronto Film Festival Cumberbatch addressed the rumor:
“This is the simple truth. J.J. and I have worked together before. I would love to work with him again. No offer has been made. That is that. And that is that."
The Telegraph got this quote from him:
"Of course I’d love to do Star Wars and work with JJ Abrams again because we had such a good time on Star Trek. But nobody has been cast and there are no offers out to anyone apart from the regulars who are returning. So that’s that rumor quashed…We’ll have to wait and see."
He never said that he is not in the new Star Wars project. What do you think Maniacs? Is Cumberbatch stalling? Is 2015 unrealistic for a Star Wars release? Sound off below!
