Nothing is official, yet. Variety is reporting that Girls star Adam Driver may be the next Sith Lord in Star Wars Episode VII. Again, Variety is reporting that no deal has been signed as of yet. If this is fact true, Driver would be the first official cast member of Star Wars Episode VII.
From Variety: “Driver’s name had been rumored during the casting process, but in recent weeks, the Indiana native has become Disney and LucasFilms’ top choice to play the main villain.
The delay in making a decision was due to scheduling issues with “Star Wars” and his HBO show “Girls.” Sources say it’s not just Season 4 that was the hangup, but also future seasons, since future “Star Wars” installments could also coincide with upcoming seasons of the HBO Lena Dunham comedy”.
So we are still waiting for the official word from both Disney and Lucasfilm. When it arrives in our inbox Maniacs we will share it with you!
