Sullivan Stapleton may be auditioning...
Latino Review reports that Sullivan Stapleton (Strike Back, 300: Rise of an Empire) is the latest name rumored to have read for Star Wars: Episode VII. Of course, it's unknown what he read for as Lucasfilm/Disney and JJ Abrams have yet to reveal any plot details.
Stapleton allegedly is in some trouble with his people and Lucasfilm over revealing to others that he read for the part.
Meanwhile, the website also claims that the film will not be shooting in New Mexico and that "this IMAX thing is out of context," referring to reports that the film would be shot in the format. It will be an original story and not based on the novels, graphic novels, or other materials in the Expanded Universe that began after Return of the Jedi. It was written by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire). It will be released in 2015.
