With seemingly anyone who's anyone having been invited for STAR WARS: EPISODE VII talks, you can now add Gary Oldman to the list of those who may be joining J.J. Abrams' galaxy far, far away.

Speaking to Sky Movies, the legendary actor revealed, "They've called me, yeah. I'm more cynical about it now, I believe it when I'm on the plane home. You know, the deal isn't done until then. But yeah, they've inquired."

Gary Oldman in anything is usually gold. Gary Oldman and STAR WARS together brings instant credibility to Abrams' new trilogy of films.

As for other names that may appear in EPISODE VII, it's been recently rumoured that BREAKING BAD's Jesse Plemons will be playing the son of Luke Skywalker, whilst genre favourite Benedict Cumberbatch has been long-time linked to the series. Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher and Han Solo are also set to return as Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo, respectively.

STAR WARS: EPISODE VII is currently scheduled for an 18th December, 2015 release.
