Felicity Jones Cast as Lead in Star-Wars Standalone Project

Felicity Jones

 

News has come out that Oscar-nominated actress Felicity Jones (for her performance in The Theory of Everything) has officially been attached as the lead in one of Disney’s future Star-Wars standalone films that is being directed by Gareth Edwards (Godzilla). 

Nothing is known about the project aside from Edwards is directing with Chris Weitz writing the script and now Jones starring. Jones was apparently chosen from a decent sized group of actresses that auditioned including Rooney Mara (Girls with the Dragon Tattoo) and Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black).

The current speculation is that this solo film will be focused on Princess Leia in her early days while the other standalone motion picture by Josh Trank (Chronicle) will do the same but with Han Solo.

Hopefully more information will start to come out about these two films soon with this first mystery Star-Wars project planned for a December 16, 2016 release.
