Tatiana Maslany and Rooney Mara Split - H 2015

The sublime actresses¬†are testing for the female lead in Gareth Edwards‘ Star Wars spinoff, but no one knows what the film we be about. Some suppose that the film will likely be a Boba Fett or bounty hunter film with the female lead being a Mandalorian warrior (much like Sabine on Star Wars Rebels).

Edwards film is currently slated for release a year after The Force Awakens on December 16, 2016. Josh Trank is the next solo film to come out after the next Star Wars saga film, but does not have a release date.
