'Star Wars Episode VII' To Reportedly Hold Open Auditions In UK After Disney Casting Notice Posted On Twitter

Always wanted to appear in 'Star Wars'? You could now be in with a chance, after it was revealed open auditions are to be held in the UK and Ireland.

Casting sessions for 'Star Wars: Episode VII' will begin later this week in cities including London, Dublin and Glasgow, according to the BBC, who claim a Disney casting notice posted on Twitter is looking to find stars for JJ Abrams' new flick.

The casting notice says film-makers want to fill two roles - a "street smart and strong" orphaned girl in her late teens and a "smart capable" man in his late teens or early 20s.

The open auditions were first published on the Twitter account @UKopencall.

Lucasfilm, who is now owned by Disney, has declined to comment to the BBC about whether the casting notice is in fact for 'Star Wars'.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' is scheduled to begin shooting at Pinewood Studios in spring 2014, for an expected 2015 release.

However, on Thursday, news broke that Michael Arndt's script for the film was being rewritten by JJ Abrams and Lawrence Kasdan, effectively booting the 'Toy Story 3' writer off the project.
