Keri Russell Is In Talks to Join 'Star Wars: Episode IX'!

Keri Russell Is In Talks to Join 'Star Wars: Episode IX'!

Previously, she worked with Abrams on his beloved series Felicity, in which she played the titular role. While we don't know who she'll be playing just yet, her part is described as one that calls for "action-heavy fight scenes", meaning she'll be right in the middle of the conflict between the Resistance and the First Order. When contacted for confirmation, Lucasfilm said they had no comment on the report.

Some fans speculate Russell may play Rey's mother in a flashback and, given the circumstances in which Rey was left, you can assume there will be some fighting involved. Production is set to begin at the end of July.

This gap also allows the turbulent news surrounding the solo spin-off, and the subsequent canning of other spin-offs, to fade from memory.

Russell and Abrams go back a long way. Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac are all expected to return for the latest Star Wars installment.

Abrams is in early talks with the "Felicity" alum to join "Star Wars: Episode IX", which Abrams is writing and directing.

Variety reported a bit more on the future cast of Episode 9. Abrams reportedly has at least two more major roles to cast in the film before shooting begins later this month, but those roles also remain mysterious.

Episode IX lands in theaters on December 20, 2019.
