Previously it was reported that Ryan Gosling, Zac Efron, Alex Pettyfer, Saoirse Ronan and Chloe Grace Moretz auditioned. Ronan even confirmed the news when she bluntly said "so has everyone." She added that she could not say anything about the film because if she did the studio would "chop off her head with a light-saber."
Benedict Cumberbatch was also rumored to be cast in the film but later dimissed the rumors at the Toronto Film Festival. Meanwhile, Ksenia Solo is said to be in final consideration to star in a major role in the movie. However, her publicists have yet to confirm anything.
Production has not revealed casting news but it is widely rumored that Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill will reprise their roles in the upcoming film. Hamill and Fisher were supposedly assigned trainers to get back into shape for the movie.
Stapleton is best known for his work on "Animal Kingdom," "Gangster Squad" and "The Hunter." He will next be seen in "300: Rise of an Empire" and "Kill Me Three Times" with Simon Pegg, Teresa Palmer and Luke Hemsworth.
