Tom Hiddleston ready for Star Wars?
It’s well known that there will be a Star Wars Episode 7 coming in 2015.
Now some of Hollywood’s biggest actors are in list for a possible involvement.
In the first place, when it was announced that Disney had bought the movie franchise, started the Zac Efron mania around the web.
In fact, the former Disney’s High School Musical star recently revealed to MTV that he talked with the studio about being cast in Star Wars 7: “I just went and met with producers. So I don’t know. It would be cool. I love the Star Wars movies, I love them, but … who knows?”
Also Gary Oldman was linked to the movie. The Dark Knight actor simply confirmed that the studio have called. However, Oldman did tell reporters what made him sign on for the recent Robocop remake: “Money! I’m at the mercy of what the industry is making and what comes through my door. But I thought this was an intelligent script and I love Jose’s [director, ed] point of view”.
Obviously it could not be excluded from the list the king of villains Loki.
With Kathleen Kennedy having worked with Tom Hiddleston on War Horse, and his growing popularity (he was nominated yesterday Man of the Year by Elle Magazine) among both fans and internally at Disney, this is a name that seems justifiable in building some excitement.
British actor said to DigitalSpy: “Goodness, I hadn’t thought of that. I mean, yeah, sure. I’m a huge fan, especially the first three…so absolutely, yeah. It would depend on the story and the character and things, but maybe people would associate me too closely with Loki. I hope not. Kathleen Kennedy is a filmmaker of such extraordinary experience and wisdom, and is one of the best producers I’ve ever, ever worked for. She just knows her way around the medium, and the art form and the industry. So I’d take it very seriously if they asked me.”
But, in a recent interview with Perez Hilton, Coriolanus star revealed that he doesn’t think the Star Wars are in his future: “Well, that hasn’t happened yet. It’d be very flattering, of course…I imagine they’re looking for people who don’t have an association elsewhere. The audience need to believe in the character, rather than saying, ‘Oh look, it’s Loki with a lightsaber!'”
Who will be the chosen one?
