Star Wars, the most famous franchise of our planet, will be prolonged. Its eighth episode’s cast may include a rising star of the British cinema Tom Hardy. The rumours about his involvement in the Star Wars VIII has long been circulating in Hollywood, and the Briton responds them at last.
The commercial success of another episode of The Star Wars saga is fantastic, The Rogue One: A Star Wars Story just made an unbelievable box office. The producers have strong intentions to create the next episode, which is giving all of us insane A New Hope nostalgia.
In fact, The Star Wars Episode VIII project doesn’t have an official title yet but has the date of release — December 2017, and possible cast. One of the recent development that has fans incredibly excited is the prospect of Tom Hardy taking on a role in the VII episode. That’s a pure irony but Tom Hardy remained coy about rumours on his possibly role in the saga.
‘I don’t know if I can even say that. Where did you hear that?… Ah, the Internet is a glorious web of deceit and misinformation, isn’t it? It could be, couldn’t it?’
Tom Hardy in his interview for Hollywood Reporter answered the question, whether or not he will play the role of a Stormtrooper in Episode VIII. The British actor didn’t confirm his involvement. At the same time, he didn’t deny, so, such an interview arose much more questions than before it.
Tom Hardy Star Wars Episode VIII
The saga Star Wars has always managed to attract the A-division actors. From Liam Neeson in The Phantom Menace to Mads Mikkelsen in Rogue One. It’s pretty logical if Tom Hardy would play a Stormtrooper in the upcoming Star Wars movie, it’s entirely likely that it could be a minuscule role. Time will show.
