Movies.Yahoo.com — After Harrison Ford’s recent on set injury, it looks as though newcomer Oscar Isaac will be getting an extended role in ‘Star Wars VII’.
It’s been an uncertain time on the ‘Star Wars’ set lately, after Harrison Ford’s ankle injury caused the 71-year-old star to be pulled out of the production for the foreseeable future. But with rumours that he could shoot some scenes from the waist up, is he really up to it? It looks as though he may have his duties shipped out to another actor, with Oscar Isaac tipped to get an extended role…
According to NY Post, the 35-year-old ‘Star Wars’ newcomer will take on an extended role in the upcoming sequel due to Harrison Ford’s recent injury. “Hollywood sources say that star Oscar Isaac’s role in the movie is being expanded,” they revealed. “After Ford was injured on the sci-fi epic’s set, spies say Isaac’s part is now being extended as a Plan B.”
Of course, details of Isaac’s role have been kept tightly under wraps since he was announced as part of the new cast back in April. But with speculation that he could take on the role of Han Solo’s son, it sounds as though beefing up his role in the film to take over from Harrison Ford is probably a good idea.
StarWars.com — The Star Wars team is thrilled to announce the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII.
Actors John Boyega, Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Oscar Isaac, Andy Serkis, Domhnall Gleeson, and Max von Sydow will join the original stars of the saga, Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels, Peter Mayhew, and Kenny Baker in the new film.
Director J.J. Abrams says, “We are so excited to finally share the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII. It is both thrilling and surreal to watch the beloved original cast and these brilliant new performers come together to bring this world to life, once again. We start shooting in a couple of weeks, and everyone is doing their best to make the fans proud.”
Star Wars: Episode VII is being directed by J.J. Abrams from a screenplay by Lawrence Kasdan and Abrams. Kathleen Kennedy, J.J. Abrams, and Bryan Burk are producing, and John Williams returns as the composer.
The movie opens worldwide on December 18, 2015.
Oscar Isaac is set to play Colombian drug lord and politician Pablo Escobar in Brad Furman’s biopic.
The Guatemalan-born American star has apparently landed the lead role in the forthcoming film, reported Deadline. Brad – who directed The Lincoln Lawyer – has been trying to develop the crime saga for some time. The film, which has a script written by Matt Aldrich, is to tell the life story of the ruthless drug kingpin who rose to power in the mid-70s and the tale of his short-lived career in Colombian politics.
Oscar, who has racked up memorable performances in Drive, Sucker Punch, WE and The Bourne Legacy, will next play the title character in the Coen brothers’ music-themed drama Inside Llewyn Davis. He will also star in period drama Therese with Elizabeth Olsen and Tom Felton, and thriller The Two Faces Of January alongside Viggo Mortensen and Kirsten Dunst.
Oscar Isaac is in some serious negotiations to join the movie which already has Viggo Mortensen on board as the lead. Drive scribe Hossein Amini will be in charge for the whole thing, so let’s just guess that this one really has a lot of potential.
Based on the novel written by Patricia Highsmith, The Two Faces of January is a story of a con artist, his wife and a stranger who try to flee a foreign country after one of them is caught up in the murder of a police officer.
The good thing is that the movie is set to go into production at the end of the year!
