Benicio Del Toro Eyed For Villain Role In Star Wars Episode VIII

imagesSources have confirmed to Deadline, that actor Benicio Del Toro (The Usual Suspects, Guardians Of the Galaxy) is in talks to take on the role of the main villain in Star Wars: Episode VIII. The film which is slated for a May, 2017 release date will be directed by Rian Johnson, mostly known for his 2012 Sci-fi hit “Looper” starring Joseph Gordon Levitt.

This news raises a few questions and could be an indication that at least one of the three main villains in JJ Abrams’ Star Wars : The Force Awakens will not make it out of the movie alive. It is unlikely to be Gwendolyn  Christie’s Captain Phasma since she is the franchise’s first female antagonist. That leaves Domhnall Gleeson’s General Hux,  and Adam Driver’s Kylo Ren.
