Variety reports that Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls) is the first addition to the cast of J.J. Abrams’ STAR WARS EPISODE VII. Driver was recently rumored to play Nightwing in Batman vs. Superman, but rumors state he turned that role down for this.

The site reveals that he’s extremely close to finalizing the deal to play the lead villain, a role described as “in the vein of iconic ‘Star Wars’ villain Darth Vader.”

Directed by J.J. Abrams, Star Wars Episode VII begins shooting in London this April and is set to hit theaters on December 18th, 2015.
