Michael B. Jordan Confirms He Auditioned For ‘Star Wars: Episode VII’

Michael B. Jordan

Further proving how secretive J.J. Abrams actually is; not even those who admitted to auditioning for a role in Star Wars: Episode VII know what the film is about. Saoirse Ronan confirmed she did a few tests with a lightsaber, but could offer no details as to what she was role she was auditioning for. It could be that she may not know or she may know but signed some sort of nondisclosure agreement, whatever the case may be, we get a sense that there will be a strong female presence in the film and not just some sort of damsel in distress.

Now Michael B. Jordan (Chronicle) confirms he too also auditioned for a role, although he doesn’t know what the film is about. Hit the jump for more.

The Associated Press via The Huffington Post has an incredible piece on Jordan talking about the projects he is circling or in consideration for. Projects like Fantastic Four, Independence Day 2, and the untitled Apollo Creed spinoff. But let’s get back to Star Wars: Episode VII.

Ironically Ronan is also one of the names that popped up on the Fantastic Four reboot shortlist. So it is interesting to see that both their names appeared on the same projects in the same weekend.

The timing couldn’t be more perfect for fans of either franchise. For one thing it tells us that the search for lead roles for the respective films is narrowing. While Jordan says he is definitely interested working with Trank again, the actor does point out that everybody wants in on that project.

“I mean, everybody’s going in on this project. They’re trying to figure out what they want. That’s another incredible franchise. It’s pretty crazy! “¦ We’ll see how it happens. I don’t know how I can do everything.”

He adds that he didn’t get to wield a lightsaber.

Ronan said something similar to that effect when she admitted that she auditioned for that role, and rightly so. Star Wars: Episode VII is a hot project and one that everyone has been waiting for since Disney bought the property last year.
