The Hate U Give, The Gifted, Star Wars: Episode IX, And Other Film And TV Casting News
These productions come from studios based primarily in the United States. The castings are subject to change.
Star Wars: Episode IX
J.J. Abrams has been selected by Lucasfilm to serve as the director of Star Wars: Episode IX. Abrams’ involvement comes in the wake of not only Colin Trevorrow’s dismissal from the project but The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson’s statement that he would likely not work on it as well. Abrams, of course, directed The Force Awakens.
Garret Dillahunt is set to play a regular role in Fox’s The Gifted. He will play the character of Roderick Campbell, who is described as a mutant researched in the service of the Sentinels. Dillahunt joins a cast that includes the likes of Stephen Moyer, Amy Acker, Percy Hynes-White, Sean Teale, Blair Redford, and Jamie Chung. The series is set to premiere on October 2nd.
