Diego Luna, best known for his work in crossover arthouse gem “Y Tu Mama Tambien”, is headed to the Cantina for a boiling hot cup of box-office success.
Luna got a taste of space life last year with a role in Neil Blomkamp’s “Elysium”. His other credits include the ill-fated “Dirty Dancing : Havana Nights”, “Milk”, and the upcoming “Blood Father”.
This one’s a prequel to 1977’s “Star Wars : A New Hope” and fixes on a group of rebel fighters who hatch a plan to steal the plans to Darth Vader’s Death Star. Jones (rumoured to be playing a young Princess Leia), Ahmed and Luna are the orange-attired rebels, with Aussie boy Mendelsohn playing the movie’s villain (no, not Darth Vader – well, I assume not!?).
Like any good heist flick, Edwards has crafted this one to be more of a large-ensemble film that fixes on a whole band of characters rather than chronicle the adventures of a couple of main heroes.
“Rogue One” hits theaters December 16, 2016.
