The Galaxy Far Far Away may have just becoming that little bit more madder!
With Episode 8 currently under production, a very cool casting has come into the mixing bowl:
Tom Hardy will set his eyes to the Galaxy!
The latest reports broken by Express suggests that Tom Hardy will be playing a First Order Stormtrooper in the currently untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII, which comes out Christmas 2017.
Hardy’s role will be that seen from Daniel Craigs appearance in The Force Awakens (only a cameo) but reports suggest that it will involve recognising Finn as FN-2187, from before his mutiny against the Dark Side.
Finn, will get quite the surprise as Hardy slaps him on the behind, completely unaware that he’s been spotted. Thinking’s he been captured, Finn actually finds Hardy’s Stormtrooper just remembers him from the First Order’s training days, and wants to catch up with his old friend. Hardy then congratulates Finn on his apparent ‘promotion’ as a Resistance Infiltrator, when actually he’s on their side.
It sounds great if it is true!
Even though it seems like a blink and you’ll miss it cameo, if the reports are true – it will be a very cool Easter egg to look out for!
