Benedict Cumberbatch Cast In “Star Wars Episode VII”?

September 2, 2013

Film Chronicles reports that Benedict Cumberbatch will re-team with J.J. Abrams on the upcoming picture STAR WARS EPISODE VII.

Abrams and Cumberbatch previously worked together on Star Trek Into Darkness where Cumberbatch played the iconic villain Khan.

“There’s a lot of gossip swirling around that Lucasfilm are about to make a big casting announcement regarding Star Wars VII, and that casting announcement appears to be none-other than Benedict Cumberbatch, most recently seen in director JJ Abrams’ previous movie, ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’.” 

Cumberbatch recently dropped out of Guillermo del Toro’s Crimson Peak so maybe there is some truth in the above statement. However, the site doesn’t give a source so consider this a huge rumor until it is confirmed.

Would he be a better hero or villain in a Star Wars movie?
