'Star Wars Episode IX' Taps Keri Russell For Role

Star Wars: Episode IX is slated for worldwide release on December 20, 2019.

Disney, the parent company of Lucasfilm, had no comment on the casting. Yet.

The actress, who just finished six seasons of The Americans and is well-known for playing the title role in Felicity, is reportedly in talks for an action-oriented role in Star Wars Episode IX, according to Variety. Russell and Abrams last collaborated on 2006s “Mission: Impossible III.”. Abrams, who created her series Felicity, which ran from 1998-2002.

Some fans speculate Russell may play Rey's mother in a flashback and, given the circumstances in which Rey was left, you can assume there will be some fighting involved.

Malaysia's Mahathir to visit China for talks on projects
In May, Mahathir announced that Malaysia would withdraw from a high-speed rail project linking Kuala Lumpur with Singapore. It is created to be part of China's Belt and Road initiative to form a huge economic zone that spans Asia and Europe.

Fernando Reza, an LA-based graphic artist, tweeted an image of his Star Wars: The Last Jedi poster that mocked a section of fans who have been vocal in their anger about the movie.

Abrams, who directed Star Wars: The Force Awakens and openly said that he wished he had not signed on for only one movie, got his wish when Colin Trevorrow and Lucasfilm parted ways over creative differences, opening up a slot for the final installment of the Star Wars sequel trilogy. "I would do crafts services if he asked!" Variety says Abrams expect to add two more actors to join the likes of Ridley, Driver, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac and Kelly Marie Tran before production begins at the end of the month.
