Rumour: Benedict Cumberbatch for Star Wars: Episode VII?

As we all do, people are putting two and two together and making Star Wars casting theories. This one sounds like it could just be true though: Benedict Cumberbatch might be joining Star Wars: Episode VII.

It was only a few weeks ago that Cumberbatch dropped out of Guillermo Del Toro's Crimson Peak, which many speculated that this means he is making time for his director-buddy from Star Trek, J.J Abrams, and Star Wars.

If this is true, it shows that Episode VII is going to be bringing in some well known actors from big franchises to arguably the biggest franchise of all. It will also mean that another person connected to Star Trek will be moving to Star Wars. Nice bit of trivia there.

We're not sure when this could be confirmed, but we hope it's sooner rather than later. Bleeding Cool seems to think so too.

Editor's note: Yipeeeeeeeee!
