Recently covered a rumor about that the Breaking Bad star Jesse Plemons was flying out to Los Angeles to meet with JJ Abrams about a role in the next Star Wars movies. According to The Wrap, they say that JJ Abrams has confirmed meeting with him and that the script is done.
“He is one of the actors that we’ve talked to, yeah,” Abrams said. “But, you know. It’s not often that I read about actors that I’m going to be meeting … that 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’m going to see you.’ … It’s usually agents talking to people about what’s happening. It’s a lot of noise.”
“We’re working really hard and we’ve got our script and we’re in deep prep,” Abrams told TheWrap. “Full steam ahead, y’know.”
JJ also comments about all the rumors that are floating around the web about the movies.
“There’ve been so many of them,” he said. “It’s amazing to see how many there are. … But it’s sweet because it shows that there’s an interest in this movie that we all obviously know is there. But it is an incredible thing to see how many crazy things get thrown out that people often then write commentaries about. How happy they are, how disappointed they are about something that is completely false. It’s a lot of noise, frankly.”
Most of the rumors that are floating around are casting, and USA Today had the opportunity to ask about casting, but according to Abrams he can’t reveal it just yet, but promises that all will be revealed soon.
“We can’t talk about story yet,” said the director, who plans to travel to England soon to begin work on the seventh film in the long-running saga. As far as casting, he had no details but said they will come “soon, and I look forward to that so that we can get past it and we can get on with it.”
