For months now, fans of Star Wars have been waiting to hear news about the upcoming revival of the franchise by director J.J. Abrams but as expected the production is being kept under wraps. But every so often it seems something leaks out and today perhaps the biggest leak yet was posted on the internet.
Actor Jason Flemyng, best known for his roles in Guy Ritchie films and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, is apparently up for a role in the film and has posted a photo of the script on his Instagram account.
Now, the first question you need to ask yourself is this: is Flemyng legitimately posting a photo of the Star Wars Episode VII script or are we being Justin Bieber-ed again. You’ll remember that a few months back, the often annoying pop star actually did something cool for once and trolled the entire world into thinking he was up for the part of Robin in Batman vs. Superman.
This could again be the case but it seems as though Flemyng is indeed up for a role in Star Wars Episode VII as he clarified as much in the comments of the photo. What role and how big of one wasn’t mentioned but there’s a lot to take away from the single photo posted.
Not the least of which is the script is printed on red paper with black ink. This could just be the way that Star Wars Episode VII is printing their scripts to make sure they can spot one if it’s been stolen or it’s meant to be color coded — like Sith colors. Could Jason Flemyng be playing a Sith in the film, because from the looks of his color coded script that might be the case.
It’s impossible to make out what is on the page, although someone is eventually going to get scientific and find a way to read it. But for now, we’ve got the biggest leak of the Star wars Episode VII production and it just gets us even more pumped up for whatever is next to come.
