Thousands of hopefuls have been piling into London with the aim of being cast in the new “Star Wars” film during an open casting call in the United Kingdom and Ireland.

The auditions are being held for the leading roles in the new sequel to the film and the producers are searching for a teenaged-girl and a young man. The auditions will move to Dublin,Glasgow, and other cities in the UK over the next week.

The roles include that of Rachel who is said to be a young woman who has lost her parents and has no other family. Rachel is 17 and is street smart and strong. The casting is for actresses over the age of 16 but look young enough to play a 17 or 18-year-old.

For the male role of Thomas actors must be at least 18 and can pass for someone between 19 and 23-years old. Thomas is said to be smart and capable but grew up without a dad and doesn’t have a strong sense of himself.

The film is set to star shooting in Spring 2014. The first sequel “Star Wars: Episode VII” is set for release in December 2015.

Harrison Ford is rumoured to be making a return for the new film although this has not been confirmed.

Star Wars Episode VII delayed

Star_Wars (1)The release of “Star Wars: Episode VII” has been delayed until December 18, 2015 according to a blog post on Disney and LucasFilm’s official “Star Wars” website.

The director of the film, J.J. Abrams has taken over the writing for the movie which could have something to do with the delay in plans. Abrams will work with Lawrence Kasdan having taken over the job from “Toy Story 3” penner, Michael Arndt. Arndt does not seem to be lined up to work on the script with the inclusion of Abrams and Kasdan. He was initially linked to the project to write treatments and its sequels as well as the script itself. Abrams basically dismissed Arndt in a posting on the website.

“Working with Michael was a wonderful experience and I couldn’t be a bigger fan of his or adore him more, He’s a wonderful guy and was incredibly helpful in the process”, a release from Abrams said.

It is reported that LucasFilm wanted the film delayed up until as late as 2016 but Disney refused and problems with the script appears to be at the root of the request for a delay. The script problems are believed to be why LucasFilm were seeking additional time to get the film made. “Star Wars: Episode VII” will start shooting at Pinewood Studios in Spring.
