Now that Star Trek Into Darkness has finally been released in theaters, director J.J. Abrams is free to focus the majority of his time on that other beloved franchise that he’s reviving: Star Wars. While plot details have been (and will be) kept under firm wraps for quite some time, we do know that Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3) is hard at work on the screenplay, and he was even seen with Abrams in London at the Into Darkness premiere, so it’s clear that the two are knee-deep in development on Episode VII. With production looking to get underway in London in early 2014, Abrams and producer Kathleen Kennedy are likely starting to think about casting. A recent report has now surfaced that claims Abrams has already zeroed in on one actor for the film: Jonathan Rhys Meyers. Hit the jump for more. The folks over at Latino Review »

After helming two Star Trek films for Paramount, J.J. Abrams surprised many people when he signed on to direct Disney's Star Wars: Episode VII earlier this year.
