The Star Wars series may be adding another iconic star to the galaxy far far away. Star Wars: Episode IX is gearing up to start production soon and even though many fans are questioning the future of the franchise after Solo: A Star Wars Story critically acclaimed failure thanks to fans boycotting the movie.
News just broke that actress Keri Russell is the latest person to be connected to the Episode IX. The actress who, just finished season 6 of The Americans, is reportedly in talks to join the cast of the movie for an unspecified role, according to Variety.
The company claimed that the role, even though her specific character is unconfirmed, will involve and showcase fight scenes.
It is also claimed that director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm execs chose Russell just before the Fourth of July.
Production of Episode IX is set to begin later this month. Rumors are circling that Hayden Christensen may make an appearance as the famed Anakin Skywalker. However, this should be taken with a grain of salt like any rumor.
Star Wars Episode IX is scheduled to premiere on Dec. 20, 2019.
