I think this would be great if this actually works out. I would bet that it does. Lucasfilm has called Gary Oldman about a part in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII. The actor confirms the news. Oldman is a great actor. Loved him in the Nolan Batman trilogy and the Harry Potter films. The actor had this to say:
“They’ve called, yeah. I’m more cynical about it (casting) now; I believe it when I’m on the plane home. You know, the deal isn’t done (until then). But yeah, they’ve inquired. I mean Planet of the Apes, Harry Potter, Batman and….Star Wars? Bloody hell…”
Let’s make it happen!
