There are reports of her acting strange and involved with questionable things. Maybe drug related.

http://www.starwars7news.com/2014/02...ouble.html?m=1

Of course there's no real proof of this but it makes me wonder. This would be her first big acting gig in a film in years. Can she handling it? Is she clean? The last outburst she had was barely 1-2 years ago on that cruise ship.

If she got recast sadly I wouldn't be surprised. As Mark is getting into better shape, she looks about the same as she did for years. Off and on diets.

idk........it would feel kind of weird if you recast one of the big 3.

it almost feels like, if you go that route, you either recast all of them, write one of the characters out of the story, or else defocus those characters and focus on the new generation.

It always did seem like if one of the big three would screw this up it'd be Fischer.

Flashback would be different for Star Wars. But I'm hoping that's what it is and we don't get a 2/3 reunion.

Yeah, i must agree with this. It would be weird seeing Mark and Harrison act with someone who isnt Carrie as Leia.

I had hoped this recast was for a very early flashback (very pre-ANH), but...

I dont wanna be pessimistic, but i couldnt help thinking one of the most repeated lines in SW when i read that: I have a bad feeling about this

One of the things said for a younger version. I'm sure she will be fine. If they can deal with Lindsay Lohan in films, I'm sure they can reign in her. But I think this is again just tons of "jumping" to conclusions.

That and her drug problem did not seem to stop her with ESB/ROTJ lol. I still always catch the white powder scene in ROTJ all the time.

I noticed this source came from Jedi NewsUK. Love the site but not a single one of their "sources" have panned out. Take that for what you will.

Who knows. But it may be that Jack Reynor won that role.

yeah.....they sort of have that similar "look" rolewise.

And not being familiar with either, based on "looks" alone, I'd take Reynor, especially if he's Skywalker's son and thus the main young male lead.

That Breaking Bad guy just had more of a "bad guy" look.

Well, Carrie's health isnt what it used to be now though, so hopefully it's all just baseless rumors. And i gotta ask, what white powder scene!? i know nothing of this lol

I think people are just over-reacting with almost everything Episode VII related. The problem with most "Sources" That they are friends of friends of friends. It's how it is with me too. Very few are direct LFL types or other companies. Once in a while. But with my source back in the day the one that told me Hardy was going to be Bane in October of 2010, was from a friend of a friend. JJ has been laughing about most these rumors. So even these sites are saying a massive grain of salt. I think most don't believe it but have to post it for hits.

As for the powder scene. I can't remember if the SE still has it or not. But I know the theatrical cuts do. When Han/Leia/Luke are on the Shuttle Tydurium going to land on Endor. When they are being questioned by the Imperial Officer to land, Leia puts her hand on Han's shoulder, and a little bit of white powder falls on his vest, from her pinky fingernail. But I have not seen the theatrical cut for a long time so there has been debate if that was really powder etc. But her nail is kinda clearly a "coke nail". I wanna say Carrie herself admitted it or something.

EDIT: There may be no powder, I can't remember. But here is the scene I'm talking about:

Did a lot of posting and not a lot of commenting. Lol

Anyway let's start with Reynor. I don't know anything from memory about him but seems a potential match for the codename Thomas character. If I'm to believe Google he is a tall man, six feet tall, born in the US but Irish otherwise.

As for Carrie, taking these rumors of a Leia casting call at face value, it could be for a daughter or a flashback, hologram, or vision. We don't know yet if they're looking for a young woman or old woman Carrie's age. A call for a Leia could just be shorthand for white girl that looks and/or acts like Leia.

As for a main main character that is female, it's been Brendon at BC (UK) reporting for some time that he's been hearing that. I'd rather not be in for an Episode I situation, where as RLM argued there is no main protagonist in that movie; Anakin did not become main until Episode II. I'd rather they just be out in front of it like with Katniss than try to be cutesy and dodgy about it.

RLM also said it can be done, especially if you have "good writers". It was more of a sense with some writers, trying to do that may not always work. But it's hard to tell. I think there will be a lead lead, and it may be Jack. Or who ever is going for this male role. But sadly there is just too much rumor going on now. I really hope with all this Rebels news flying out so fast, that it means they will be doing Episode VII stuff once they get all the Rebels characters fully announced. I think there is only 2 mains left for Rebels to have a clip for. However one of the concept artists back in August said that he was drawing female Jedi concept art. But who knows.

Hard to say. It was during Celebration. But it's hard to pin down if it was true that he said that or not.

ah, ok.

in the Rebels thread, I was asking if the remaining 2 female characters would be Jedi, and a poster there posted some concept art for the girls, and neither were Jedi.

Ya neither of the females in Rebels are Jedi it seems. I just think it's Kanan and Ezra in terms of mains.

As far as news from Disney Lucasfilm goes, they're in the midst of this Rebels rollout and there's this upcoming event known as the Academy Awards that is going to suck some of the news cycles up.

Sometimes they use that to their advantage. But usually only if one of the nominated is cast. But Chiwetel Ejiofor has been a rumored name floating around for some time. So if he did get cast, I could see them using that as a springboard.
