Keri Russell appears to be journeying to a galaxy far, far away in Star Wars Episode IX. According to sources speaking with Variety, Keri Russell was offered a role in the next Star Wars film just before the July 4th holiday. Negotiations are said to have begun, but seeing as Russell has worked with JJ Abrams numerous times it is doubtful there will be any hiccups.
As to who Russell will be playing, we have no idea. The only thing known at this time is she was part of a two-month casting process and it called for “for action-heavy fight scenes.” If she is on the side of the Resistence or the First Order remains to be seen.
Filming on Episode IX is set to begin at the end of July with a release date set for Dec. 20, 2019.
