Carrie Fisher Reportedly Spending Six Months With The STAR WARS VII Shoot
Carrie Fisher has been saying she’s returning for Star Wars Episode VII since day one, but it still hasn’t been officially confirmed by Disney or the J.J. Abrams camp. The only official casting we have is R2-D2 and a pretty solid report that Adam Driver is the villain. Fisher nor none of the original cast have been confirmed, but a new report is claiming that Princess Leia will be involved with the shoot for quite some time.
The actress has a role on an upcoming episode of FXX‘s new show Legit. The show’s star, Jim Jefferies, recently appeared on Sirius XM’s Opie and Anthony Show to talk about Legit and his experiences working with Fisher. The comedian poked a little fun at his co-star, but he also revealed that she has told him she is filming Star Wars in London for six months (via /Film):
She’s a funny lady, man. She’ll be smoking cigarettes outside and as soon as she gets inside, she’s straight on to the vapor. She’s had some f***ing hard partying in her life, I tell ya….She said to me, she goes ‘I’m going off to London for six months to film the new Star Wars movie,’ right? And I don’t think from looking at it, the new Star Wars movie is a direct continuation. It’s number 7 but it’s not going to be the next day, I’ll tell you that much. Maybe she had the same problem the Emperor had, I don’t know.
Work is already underway at Pinewood Studios for the movie from Abrams that will kick off a new trilogy for Disney, so official casting announcements are expected soon since filming will begin shortly. I’m sure there will be a lot of fanfare when Fisher, Harrison Ford, and Mark Hamill are officially announced for Episode VII. We pretty well know they’re involved in some way, but Disney will make it a huge deal when it happens. What do you think about the comedian’s comments? Did you expect Fisher to be committed to the movie for that long?
