Diego Luna & Ben Mendelsohn Also Cast in 'Star Wars: Rogue One'

13 May 2015 12:18 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

More casting news for the upcoming Star Wars Anthology spin-off titled Rogue One, being directed by Gareth Edwards. With shooting starting up soon, they're finalizing casting and so far we've seen them making some excellent choices: Felicity Jones and Riz Ahmed are confirmed. And now Variety can confirm a few others: Diego Luna and Ben Mendelsohn. The plot, revealed at Star Wars Celebration in Anaheim a few months ago, follows a band of resistance fighters on a daring mission to steal the Death Star (plans). Luna will play a lead role alongside Jones and Ahmed, however Mendelsohn is apparently playing the lead antagonist (or "primary villain" as he's being called). Now this new movie is really starting to come together. Mexican actor Diego Luna has appeared in a number of roles in various movies, taking on more lead roles recently. He's been in: Y Tu Mamá También, Frida, The Terminal, »
