He said so himself...
In an interview with Sky Movies (via Superhero Hype), Gary Oldman revealed that he is in talks for Star Wars: Episode VII. He's the latest name to be discussed for the film (including Jesse Plemons, Benedict Cumberbatch and others) as the rumors continue to grow. Oldman is one of the few who revealed the news himself.
He said: "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."
The film will be directed by JJ Abrams from a script he wrote with Lawrence Kasdan. It is rumored to focus on a new generation and could include appearnces from Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford. It will begin filming soon and will get a release on December 18, 2015.
