Most of the plans for J.J. Abrams' upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII are hidden away under lock and key, so it's really hard to tell what rumors about the film are actually more likely to be true and which are likely false. Original franchise stars Carrie Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill are all said to be returning for Abrams' sequel, but, as we've previously seen - primarily with Ford - they're not really supposed to talk about it.
Now, though, Latino Review might have a bit of info about the project: They're reporting that The Tudors star Jonathan Rhys Meyers is in talks to join the cast in an unspecified role. In fact, the site says their source reports that it "sounds like he already has it," because Meyers previously worked with Abrams on Mission Impossible III.
We should point out, Latino Review is the same site that first reported Ford's involvement in Episode VII, so there might be some actual truth to this. No confirmation from Disney or Abrams as of yet, but we'll keep you posted as this story develops.
