Tom Cruise has been in talks for a role in Star Wars Episode 7, according to reports.
The actor is reportedly in line to make a cameo appearance in JJ Abrams’ blockbuster. Abrams is said to be keen to get the star involved as he ‘loves working with Tom whenever he gets the chance’, say The Sun. Plus, with star Harrison Ford out of action with a broken leg, there’s time for film bosses to create a part for the Edge Of Tomorrow star.

A film insider told The Sun: ‘Tom has been in London for over a week and met up with JJ and some other people from Star Wars over the weekend.
