Even though we still have to wait for Star Wars Episode VII to come out in a few months, casting has already begun for Episode VIII. Several sources are reporting that Disney and Lucas Films have their eye on Benicio Del Toro for the role as the main villain in the next outing. Although nothing has been confirmed in Del Toro’s camp it would be awesome to see him with the already confirmed returning cast members Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac. Rian Johnson will be directing and we will see the next film land in May of 2017. Keep your fingers crossed because Del Toro makes anything better.
