Stars Wars just got a whole lot more inneresting!

We all love talk of a new Star Wars flick, but when you add in some cray cray casting like Florence Welch from Florence of the Machine, you’ve got ALL our attention!

While a new film is in the works, this one is going to be simply unreal if rumors are true. An insider revealed deets about the casting hopeful:

“She has done some acting but it was her singing on stage that initially caught the eye. Almost every actress in Hollywood wants a role in the new movies but we are keen to cast people who are unexpected. Florence is being considered for a major part that would turn her into an A-list actress overnight.”

The film will be directed by J.J. Abrams with a release planned for 2015, and you know everyone who is anyone is trying to land a role.

But it sounds like they’ll have to get in line behind Florence.

Gurl may have her breakthrough acting role locked up without even auditioning!
