The Star Wars universe has only been expanding since its return in 2015, and a new rumor suggests it may be getting even bigger. Bespin Bulletin is reporting on some emerging whispers that Jude Law has joined the cast of a secret project, which may be a series filming in Culver City, California this June.
The outlet explains that the information comes from the Instagram account DeuxMoi, which posts semi-reliable celebrity gossip and boasted it received a tip that “a prime British early-2000s film stud” is “adding to his recent nerdgasm resume (Marvel, Wizarding World)” and was “recently cast in an unannounced Star Wars extended universe Disney+ show”.
Fans were quick to identify the mystery person as Law, who has spent the last few years playing characters like Yon-Rogg in Captain Marvel and Albus Dumbledore in the Fantastic Beasts series. While it’s unknown what project he could potentially be participating in, the most likely option is Grammar Rodeo, the aforementioned unannounced series that’s already entered pre-production. That show will reportedly take place during the High Republic era and center around a group of pre-teens.
The Illuminerdi reported a while back that Rodeo was also looking for a male in his thirties or forties to star alongside the youthful protagonists. Law is slightly older than the casting call was looking for, but still a solid possibility for the Jon Favreau-produced series. It’s important to note all of this is still speculation and conjecture, even if the math is starting to add up. No official announcements have been made as of yet, but keep a lookout for news in the near future.
