Sam Claflin Eyed to Star in ‘Star Wars’ Stand Alone Film ‘Rogue One’
According to a new report, the Hunger Games actor is the frontrunner for a starring role in Star Wars: Rogue One.
The information is in no way official, since TheWrap reports that the role is not Claflin’s yet, but as of this moment he is the supposed favorite for one of the ensemble roles.
Star Wars: Rogue One is a stand alone film that will be released Dec 16, 2016. The story will take place between the events of Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, and the original Star Wars film, A New Hope. During a panel last week at the Star Wars Convention in Anaheim, it was revealed that the film is a heist actioner involving a group of resistance fighters who unite to steal the plans to the Death Star.
