'X-Men: First Class' Star Jason Flemyng Posts 'Star Wars' Script Image

Star Wars

While everybody and their mother has been auditioning for Star Wars: Episode VII, most of the names that have popped up in discussion have been pretty discreet about trying out for the film until after the fact. Saorise Ronan has indicated she didn't get the role, but her audition involved using lightsabers and doing dialogue. Otherwise, we haven't heard much about the auditions. But now X-Men: First Class star Jason Flemyng (he played Azazel) has been pretty bold and posted a page from the Star Wars script. How do we know? Well, along with the picture from Instagram, he wrote, "Pint of Stella and Star Wars script!" Look!

Here's the pile of scripts from Bad Robot's Twitter in July that everyone thought were Star Wars scripts:

Here's the photo of the page Flemyng posted which has since been removed Instagram:

Seems like a stupid move on the actor's part to show that he's being so nonchalant and lacking discretion about auditioning for the role, but whatever. We're sure there are hordes of people putting the image into Photoshop and trying to make out what who the characters are and what the dialogue says on that page, but we're pretty sure it won't tell us much anyway. Disney just recently dated Star Wars: Episode VII for December 18th, 2015, and Lucasfilm confirmed the first returning character is R2-D2, and he will be brought to life practically by two members of thh R2-D2 Builders Club. Stay tuned for anymore updates.

probably just a dummy script

Yeah, but he's still probably just lost his chance.

I love how everyone's an expert and "knows" he will get into "trouble". Maybe this is harmless. Maybe it's all part of the official drip-feed of daily useless news.

We'll see if he gets the film. Though if it isn't an official leak, the point isn't whether it is harmless but whether the Abrams will trust him not to violate his famous secretiveness.

He updated with "Let me clarify!!! AUDITION!!!" So, probably not the sacred script. Plus, pretty sure J.J. knows the in's and out's of the ol' NDA. Settle down now media. Settle down.

We said he's auditioning. Actors still get pages to read for auditions. And this one is watermarked and red, so it's certainly for Flemyng and from Star Wars like he said. Technically he's not revealing anything, thus complying with any NDA, but still, posting a script page like that is risky.

You did indeed. I raced to the link & was less than thorough in my reading comprehension. Yeeah... I'd still be reeeally surprised if it was (a page of...) THE actual script (with the Flyming watermark). Any other franchise with any other director... sure. Doubtful with this one. (unless J.J.'s suddenly slacking on his tight lipped-ness.) But yep, either he's dumber than I look... or... OH.. pic gone from Instagram. Heh - who knows. Bounty hunters probably got 'em already.

They look expensive.
