According to Jedi News, a source fills them in that Adam Driver will not be playing the villain of the film - at least directly.

Regarding filming in the Abu Dhabi desert for Star Wars: Episode VII, The National has provided an update in that filming will begin May 13th. It's reported security is on hand to turn back curious Star Wars fans, but according to a source the set is just about complete containing: a whole world having been built on an otherworldly salt lake at one location; a shuttle-like spacecraft; a large tower; a big, centuries-old-looking market that the crew are referring to as the “alien house”; 10 to 15 “really fast buggies” powered by jet engines; carts of explosives have been brought in under high security with a blast crater created; crew are also practicing driving vehicles for the movie out in the dunes.

It's also said that "Ancient Fear" might be the title.
