Kyle Soller (“Poldark”) and Stellan Skarsgard (“Chernobyl”) are in final negotiations to join the derivative series “Rogue One” based on the character of Diego Luna Cassian Andor who has been installed at Disney +.
We don’t know yet who will play in the series. Six weeks of pre-production were completed before being stopped due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Production is expected to resume again shortly afterwards. The spy thriller series will follow Andor during the Rebellion’s formative years and before the events of “Rogue One”.
Alan Tudyk will also return to resume his role as the former Imperial K-2SO droid. Tony Gilroy has rewritten the pilot episode of the series and will also direct several episodes, while Stephen Schaffer (“The Americans”) will act as showrunner.
