About a year ago Jason Flemyng seemingly inadvertently let it be known that Mathew Vaughn would be directing Star Wars: Episode VII., which we now know isn’t true. Well now he’s talking about Episode VII again.
The actor probably most well known for appearing in Guy Ritchie’s films and as Azazel in X-Men: First Class, has posted a page from the script of Star Wars: Episode VII to his Instagram account. Flemyng captioned the image with:
“Pint of Stella and “Star Wars” script! That’s me sorted till 5!”and later mentioned in the comments“Let me clarify!!! AUDITION!!!”
The picture has since been taken down from his Instagram account but you can see it below. You may notice the script pages are red.
Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams from a script that he wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. The movie is rumored to focus on a new generation of heroes and could include appearances by Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford in older versions of their iconic characters from the original Star Wars trilogy. The film is expected to begin production early next year and will hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
