Star Wars: Episode VII is going to be the biggest movie coming of 2015. The seventh movie in the Star Wars saga will continue the journey of the Skywalker family, and stage the ultimate showdown between the good Jedi Knights and the evil Sith Lords. The new movie is expected to go into production at Pinewood Studios in London, England in April or May. Casting is currently in progress, and though Disney and Lucasfilm are being as closed-lipped as ever, reports say the field is narrowing down.
According to Variety, director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy have reduced the list of actors up for the unnamed lead role down to five. The names on the shortlist are Jesse Plemons, John Boyega, Ed Speleers, Matthew James Thomas, and Ray Fisher, all of whom are in their early to mid-20s.
