Now Benedict Cumberbatch Teases Star Wars: Episode VII



While previously Benedict Cumberbatch stated no offers have been made regarding Star Wars: Episode VII perhaps that just meant "yet."

The Telegraph caught up with the actor at the Toronto Film Festival where Benedict Cumberbatch says more of the same, however, this time seems to tease something.

"Of course I’d love to do Star Wars and work with JJ Abrams again because we had such a good time on Star Trek,” Cumberbatch said. “But nobody has been cast and there are no offers out to anyone apart from the regulars who are returning. So that’s that rumour quashed.”

The article then notes Benedict Cumberbatch "said with a grin": "We’ll have to wait and see."

Previous rumors surrounding Benedict Cumberbatch in Star Wars: Episode VII mentioned a casting announcement would be forthcoming from Disney Lucasfilm as well as that he would be a Sith Lord.

"Star Wars: Episode VII" has a 2015 release directed by J.J. Abrams.
