According to Variety, HBO Girls star Adam Driver is close to signing a deal to play the big villain in J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII. This is the first of what should be multiple casting announcements for the highly-awaited and highly-secretive film, which is set to start shooting in London in April.
The film is set for a December 18th, 2015 release, and takes place where Return of the Jedi left off.
