It was first revealed that Felicity Jones (The Amazing Spider-Man 2) was going to star in Gareth Edwards’ Star Wars spin-off film, Rogue One. Will she be the main lead? With recent news, it’s starting to sound like it’ll be an ensemble movie, since it was reported that Riz Ahmed (Nightcrawler) was in talks to co-star with her.

Now we have news from Variety saying that Diego Luna (Elysium) is in talks to co-star with both Jones and Ahmed. He’ll be joining the other leads, with Ben Mendelsohn (The Dark Knight Rises) playing the bad guy. The site’s source says that both Ahmed and Luna will be playing rebel fighters, along with Jones.

During the Rogue One panel at Star Wars Celebration, we know that the story will follow the rebel fighters on a mission to steal the Death Star plans, before the events of Episode IV: A New Hope.

Star Wars’ Rogue One flies into theaters on December 16, 2016.
