Recently it came out that Ryan Gosling was being eyed for a starring role in Star Wars: Episode VII with the actor rumored for the son of Luke Skywalker.
However, it’s said to be not true as Ryan Gosling’s reps came out and shot it down.
“This is not true,” Gosling’s reps responded to the Huffinton Post in an e-mail about the Star Wars: Episode VII rumor.
HP also reports that the same rumor included mention that Zac Effron is a possibility for Star Wars: Episode VII as well, and even that Leonardo DiCaprio is up for a Robotech movie.
More than likely those rumors are off as well.
Another Star Wars: Episode VII rumor that turned out to be not true was mention that J.J. Abrams was bailing on the movie, which isn’t the case.
Regarding Ryan Gosling, he happens to be a fan favorite to play the new Batman for Warner Bros. as he is topping everyone’s list; if anything, all this attention shows the actor happens to be in hot demand.
Star Wars Episode VII has a 2015 release date directed by J.J. Abrams.
