After recent 'Episode VII' casting calls, it looks as though Chloe Grace Moretz has decided to re-watch the 'Star Wars' saga… but does that really mean she's up for a role?
Over the past couple of weeks, we've seen plenty of rumours when it comes to 'Star Wars' casting news. And the recent New York casting call has only made things even worse. But while Benedict Cumberbatch seems to be the focus of our attention, another young star has set tongues wagging - Chloe Grace Moretz. But is she really up for a part?
In the latest 'Star Wars' casting rumour, 16-year-old Chloe Grace Moretz has been tipped for a role in 'Episode VII'. But it all seems to have stemmed from a rather innocent tweet.
To the untrained eye, this may look like nothing… but to eagle-eyed (and perhaps overly keen) 'Star Wars' fans, this fairly innocent statement seems to have sparked the rumour that Moretz has actually been doing research for a role in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'. But is that really the case?
Well, let's put it this way - it's certainly not impossible. Moretz has already expressed interest in starring in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'. And in a recent interview with The Telegraph she even hinted that she may be up for a role.
"I can't really speak about it," she explained. "It's exciting and it would be a very cool thing to be a part of and I think JJ's brilliant but we'll see."
Of course, it's very heavy speculation at this point, but it certainly looks as though Chloe Grace Moretz could be up for a role. Or at least, reading for one. After all, the recent New York casting calls include a role that would be absolutely perfect for her. And then there's the timing of her tweet…
Taking to twitter just days after Chloe's little admission, several Lucasfilm employees revealed they had just watched 'The Empire Strikes Back' on the big screen while at work. Quite the coincidence, but does this really mean anything?
If you ask me, Chloe Grace Moretz could well have read for a role in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'. But has she been given a part? That's another matter entirely.
