BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH Clears Up Those Star Wars Casting Rumors


We’ve got bad news for you, ladies. Well, at least for those ladies out there that are huge Cumberpeople fans (I won’t use that other word here, but I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, LOL). Sherlock star Benedict Cumberbatch has denied reports that he will reunite withStar Trek into Darkness director JJ Abrams for the new Star Wars trilogy.

The New York Daily News claims that a spokesman for the 37-year-old actor said: “There is no truth to the rumour Benedict has been cast in Star Wars. I think the rumors are circling because JJ and Benedict have just recently had a wonderful time working together on Star Trek.”

Star Wars: Episode VII is due to start filming in London early in 2014 ahead of release in 2015. In the meantime, Cumby is working on the third season of Sherlock, which we absolutely can’t wait to see next year!
