It’s been a while since we’ve heard from actors and actresses about their interest in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode VII, but now Kick-Ass 2 star Chloe Grace Moretz and The World’s End‘s Simon Pegg and Nick Frost have all put their two cents in.
Speaking with MTV, Moretz says she would be very eager to be in the new film. “I mean, obviously there’s interest. It’s ‘Star Wars.’ I’d kill to be a part of that franchise, but I don’t know. J.J., I’ll give you my phone number. You can text me.”
Pegg had a very different attitude in his interview with The Age.”I don’t want to be in Star Wars, I think it would spoil it,” he said.. ”When I saw Star Wars when I was a kid, I saw a bunch of people I’d never seen before with some lofty, very respectable older actors in senior roles. I would hope J.J. doesn’t stunt-cast the film. It would be great to get some new peeps in it, it would be amazing.”
Frost agreed and added: ”I’d like to sit back as a punter and see what’s going to come from J.J.’s mind.”
Production is set to begin on Star Wars: Episode VII in the UK next year. The film is being written by Michael Arndt and will be directed by J.J. Abrams. It is currently targeting a 2015 release date. Who do you want to see join Star Wars: Episode VII?
