Oscar Isaac to join Star Wars VII? Harrison Ford may have "gigantic" role

If you have been paying attention, you might get the sense that all kinds of STAR WARS: EPISODE VII news is about to drop on us soon. All the rumor and speculation will come to an end with some solid information regarding what some might say is the most anticipated movie since, well, REVENGE OF THE SITH.

Deadline is reporting that potential cast members have gathered in London for a table read. Oscar Isaac (INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS) is rumored to set for a major role, Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls), John Boyega (ATTACK THE BLOCK), and hotty Maisie Richardson-Sellers are also said to be part of the flick. They would all be joining alums Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill who are set to return to their iconic roles.  Ford is talked about as having a "gigantic role" in this first film, but as usual, still no official word from Disney; quiet as a mouse those guys.

Will we find out on May 4th about the final cast and perhaps some story details? I hope so; I’ve had the same Star Wars sheets on this bed for weeks and I’m not about to jinx anything now by washing them.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is slated for release on December 18, 2015.

I got a bad feeling about this...

I can't be the only one who thinks (should the rumour be true) that the reason Han gets a beefed up role is just so they can kill him of at the end of EP 7.
Perhaps Ford demanded it. 'Sure I'll do another one but only if you kill me at the end.'

I agree, it's an idea he felt strongly about with Jedi and would be an interesting catalist for the trilogy as a plot device though a downer for us fans!

Well remember he said the same thing when cast in ROTJ. But that didn't happen. I somehow think that this time it will.

I know that Simon Kinberg has said that the new films will not take the Expanded Universe as canon, but I think killing Chewbacca off (which happened during the Yuuzhan Vong war storyline) instead of Han might be a good idea.

Gigantic, you say? Attack of the 50 Foot Han Solo!

John Boyega would be a stellar addition to a STAR WARS cast: he reminds me of a young Denzel Washington.

Oscar Isaac would be a great addition. Hope it turns out to be true.
