‘Star Wars’ John Boyega To Star With Emma Watson In ‘The Circle

For a couple years after Attack the Block we expected to see John Boyega getting great roles, but it took a bit of time.


THE DEAL The Brit, who will play Finn in December’s “Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens“, has been tapped to star in an upcoming science-fiction film with Tom Hanks and Emma Watson, Deadline reports.

And I was just having a conversation about what John Boyega would do next now that “Star Wars” is in the can, and will be out in a few months. He’ll chew scenery opposite Emma Watson and Tom Hanks.

‘The Circle’ is a 2013 novel which chronicles tech worker Mae Holland as she joins a powerful Internet company which starts out as an incredibly rewarding experience, but as she works there longer things start to fall apart. “What begins as the captivating story of one woman’s ambition and idealism soon becomes a heart-racing novel of suspense, raising questions about memory, history, privacy, democracy, and the limits of human knowledge”.

Action figures of Stormtrooper characters set to be included in the upcoming Star Wars: Episode 7 “The Force Awakens” film were put on display at the recent Comic-Con worldwide conference, revealing new information about their plot roles.


The film is created by Hanks and Gary Goetzman’s Playtone, together with Anthony Bregman, Ponsoldt, Walter Parkes and Laurie Macdonald of Parkes and lastly MacDonald Image Nation.
