Which “Breaking Bad” Alum Might Star in the New “Star Wars”?

 

It’s official: the “Star Wars: Episode VII” script is done!

According toEntertainment Weekly,” J.J. Abrams attended a TCA panel for his forthcoming NBC series, “Believe,” where he was extremely forthcoming about plans to reboot the hit George Lucas franchise.

“We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep. Full steam ahead,” he said (via “EW”).

Abrams also confirmed reports that he and the producers had met with “Breaking Bad” and “Friday Night Lights” star Jesse Plemons.

“He is one of the actors that we’ve talked to,” he allowed. “But it’s not often that I read about actors that I’m going to be meeting… I get to read articles about actors who are going to come in. And so I get to see someone and say, ‘Oh, I read that I was going to see you!’… It’s a lot of noise.”

The “Star Trek” director also denied that the film will have scenes in IMAX.
