Saoirse Ronan Didn’t Get The STAR WARS Gig; FANTASTIC FOUR Rumors Are Just Rumors


Saoirse-Ronan-the-host-22608581-942-1280Saoirse Ronan is riding the bullet train to stardom. In her relatively short career, she’s already been nominated for multiple awards, including an Oscar and Golden Globe for her role in Atonement. She’s showing up on just about every radar in Hollywood at this point and before too long, will be able to pick and choose her roles with the bigger names, if she isn’t there already. So, not surprisingly, her name has shown up in several rumors over the past several months,

The biggest flick she’s been associated with recently is the seventh episode in the hugely successful Star Wars franchise that JJ Abrams is heading up. Originally, it was rumored to be auditioning for a role, but she later confirmed that she had indeed read for an unspecified role in the film. While chatting with The Playlist, she once again confirms she tested for a role, but she did not get the part. She also talks a bit about the audition process and states once again that many people have read for the part.

 “I don’t have ‘Star Wars.’ I don’t have the role,” Ronan said, sounding kind of defeated. “I just shouldn’t have said anything. I just auditioned for it, like everyone else did.” When we asked about the audition process, she said, “To pretend that you have a lightsaber in a scene is always very exciting. It would be great. But it’s something that everyone’s gone up for.”

It shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear that Abrams is looking at every available option for the film and is likely doing the same thing with every major role in the film. No doubt that whoever lands the coveted roles will be bumped to the next level of stardom. Ronan also addresses the rumors that she is attached to, or may be involved with, Josh Trank’s upcoming reboot of the Fantastic Four. She shot those rumors down pretty quickly, saying they are nothing more than rumors. Ronan has a busy schedule ahead of her, she can be seen in Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel, as well as in Ryan Gosling’s directorial debut, How to Catch a Monster
