Star Wars: Episode IX Enlists Keri Russell for 'Action-Heavy' Role

  • According to a new report Star Wars 9 could end up back to where it all began

Production is set to begin at the end of July. Apparently, Abrams and Lucasfilm execs met with several actresses for the role over the past two months and have settled on Russell.

According to Variety, Russell is in talks to play an undisclosed role in Star Wars IX that requires "action-heavy fight scenes". But let's be real, the role was probably hers all along, given her long working relationship with Abrams, who created her most famous role in his hit series Felicity.

Russell, and the film's director, J.J. Abrams have worked together before on Mission Impossible: III. Abrams is directing the upcoming Star Wars film and has been spending most of his time working on the script with Lawrence Kasdan. But that won't stop us from speculating who Russell might play. Probably not, Disney has stayed away from the Star Wars Expanded Universe, so it doesn't seem likely they would start taking from it at this point in the trilogy.

Diver Dies During Rescue Efforts for Cave-Trapped Thai Boys
It's taken even experienced rescue divers up to five hours to safely navigate the unsafe cave channels to reach the team. The only way to reach them was by navigating dark and tight passageways filled with muddy water and strong currents.

Abrams previously directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the first instalment in the rebooted franchise, and returned to take charge of the new movie after Colin Trevorrow dropped out over creative differences. "I would do anything for JJ, honestly, I would do craft service".

Star Wars Episode IX is in cinemas Thursday, December 19, 2019. He has been slowly adding up the pieces for the film, and now it is being reported that a new warrior female role is being discussed with Keri Russell.
