What Richard Did star Jack Reynor has landed a role in JJ Abrams' Star Wars reboot according to reports.

Website Ain't it Cool News claims that the 22-year-old Wicklow man will appear in Star Wars: Episode VII which begins shooting in London shortly.

"I'm hearing that Jack Reynor, a young Irish actor will be in this new Bay TRANSFORMERS trilogy. But I've now heard from two different sources [he] has landed a role in EPISODE VII. No idea of what role." Ain't it Cool News reports today (February 18).

Reynor won huge acclaim for his lead part in Lenny Abrahamson's What Richard Did and has landed leaded roles in Transfomers: Age Of Extinction, and the upcoming film adaptation of Macbeth with Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, and David Thewlis.
