Zac Efron in Talks for ‘Star Wars’

Zac EfronZac Efron is in talks to appear in Star Wars: Episode VII.

The That Awkward Moment actor has met with movie bosses about a role in the new episode of the sci-fi franchise, which has recently been acquired by Disney. When asked if he'd take a part in the movie, he told MTV, "Yeah, I just went and met with them. So I don't know. It would be cool. I love [the Star Wars movies], but... who knows?"

Star Wars: Episode VII will be directed by J.J. Abrams and actors linked to roles include Michael Fassbender, Michael B. Jordan (Efron's That Awkward Moment co-star), Saoirse Ronan, Jesse Plemons, Adam Driver and Hugo Weaving.

It has also been rumored many of the actors from the original trilogy - shot in the 70s and 80s - such as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker could reprise their roles.

Carrie Fisher, 57, also recently told how she'd like to play her character, Princess Leia, again, saying, "I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair. I think that would be funny."

JJ has yet to announce any firm cast decisions, but recently said the film's script is complete.

Star Wars: Episode VII is tentatively scheduled for release in December 2015.
