Hunger Games star Sam Claflin and Riz Ahmed are being “eyed” for starring roles in Star Wars: Rogue One, according to a new report from TheWrap. Felicity Jones and Ben Mendelsohn are set to star in Rogue One, the first Star Wars spin-off film.

Director Gareth Edwards (Godzilla) will helm the film which takes place between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, centering on the group stealing the Death Star plans.

Star Wars classic banner“While Claflin does not have the role yet, he is the frontrunner for one of the ensemble roles. He has a lot of experience as a supporting player in blockbusters ranging from Snow White and the Huntsman to Pirates of the Caribbean and The Hunger Games, but he is being eyed for a more substantial role in Rogue One,” says The Wrap.

Disney and the actors’ reps had no comment.

Ahmed is known for roles in Nightcrawler, Four Lions and the upcoming film City of Tiny Lights.

Star Wars: Rogue One will be arriving in theaters on December 16, 2016.
