Tatiana Maslany, Rooney Mara Test For New Star Wars Film!

The 2013 CFDA Fashion Awards

Star Wars is back at it!

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Tatiana Maslany  (the Canadian actress from BBC America’s hit series Orphan Black) is testing for the female lead in a very secret Star Wars spinoff. But that’s not the only actress LucasFilm has their sights on…

Rooney Mara, star of the David Fincher version of Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, is also due to test this week along with some other actresses, including Felicity Jones, who just received an Oscar nomination for best actress for her work in The Theory of Everything.

The film is being directed by Gareth Edwards, but plot and character details for the movie are on deep lockdown. Insiders say that reading and testing for the movie occurred in the U.K. in December and has now moved stateside.

As of now, Lucasfilm has two Star Wars stand-alones in development, one with Edwards, the filmmaker behind last year’s Godzilla movie, and Josh Trank. Only the Edwards one has a release date: Dec. 16, 2016, which feels pretty soon, considering they’re only testing right now!

Whatever the film is going to be, LucasFilm clearly has incredible taste in talent- these women are powerhouses!

50 Shades of Grey Is the Fastest Selling Title in Fandango History

Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson Film A Night Scene On The Set Of 'Fifty Shades Of Grey'

Are you ready, world? Fandango says you ARE.

Fifty Shades of Grey doesn’t open for nearly a month, but is already the fastest selling R-rated title in Fandango history!

So what does that mean? Variety says it means that the adaptation of E.L. James’ steamy best-seller is selling OUT, and FAST. The film has supplanted “Sex and the City 2″ for the honor of having the most ticket sales on Fandango for a non-sequel film since the first “Hunger Games” movie in 2012. It’s also outpacing other R-rated hits such as the second and third “Hangover” films and “Gone Girl.”

It’s getting so crazy that the demand is causing theater owners in all fifty states to offer new showtimes.

This is also pretty interesting because, according to Variety, sexually charged films haven’t been in vogue since “Basic Instinct” and “Fatal Attraction,” so the film was still risky for Universal to back. To that end, the studio seems to be emphasizing the love story elements of the story in its promotional materials.

Are you gonna see it? Opening day (Feb 13th) is coming FAST!
