Keri Russell might be shooting off to the Star Wars universe.
The publication claims the role involves fight scenes and claims director J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm execs chose Russell just before the Fourth of July.
CNET has reached out to Walt Disney Studios for comment and will update should we hear back.
If true and these talks lead to the casting, Russell would be reuniting with Abrams, the latter having created Felicity and directed 2006's Mission: Impossible III where Russell starred as Lindsey Farris. Variety says two more roles are also likely to be cast when production begins later this month.
Star Wars Episode IX is scheduled to premiere on Dec. 20, 2019..
