The Marvel veteran is set to join Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk in the galaxy far, far away…
Word has emerged from lightspeed that actors Stellan Skarsgard and Kyle Soller are set to join Diego Luna for the upcoming Star Wars series focussing on Luna’s Cassian Andor character from Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
According to reports, both actors are in the latter stages of negotiations and are poised to join the series which is expected to arrive on Disney Plus sometime in 2021. Assigned to write the pilot for the project is Rogue One co-writer Tony Gilroy, who is also set to direct multiple episodes of the series. Stephen Schiff will be the showrunner for the series, with Alan Tudyk returning to reprise his role as K-2SO, Andor’s sarcastic droid sidekick.
Skarsgard has been a prolific member of the MCU thanks to his role as Erik Selvic from the Thor movies, and will soon be making the transition to Denis Villeneuve’s upcoming hotly-anticipated adaptation of Frank Herbert’s DUNE. Soller, on the other hand, is an up and coming prospect who received acclaim for his noteworthy performance in the BBC’s Poldark.
Sadly, as of press time, Disney has not commented on either appointment, so until we hear something concrete, take this report with a pinch of salt, but it’s a refreshing step in the right direction.
