The next movie from ‘Star Wars’ franchise will be shot in the UK, where Florence Welch, 26, is currently living.
‘We think Florence has the exact style we are looking for,’ a source told The Sun.
‘She has done some acting but it was her singing on stage that initially caught the eye.’
‘Almost every actress in Hollywood wants a role in the new movies but we are keen to cast people who are unexpected.’
Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill, who were part of the original ‘Star Wars’ cast, are in advanced negotiations to resume their roles.
According to The Sun, two of Michael Jackson’s children – Prince, 16, and Paris, 15, – will take part in auditions for the new franchise ‘Star Wars’.
The seventh film in the series, titled ‘Star Wars: Episode VII,’ will be directed by JJ Abrams.
Filming will begin early next year and the new film will be released in theaters in 2015.
