Zac Efron is the latest actor to confirm he is in talks to join the new installment of the Star Wars saga.

The former High School Musical star is one of a handful of young actors who is being considered by Disney bosses for the sci-fi franchise’s latest reboot.

In an interview with MTV News, reporter Josh Horowitz asked Efron and his That Awkward Moment co-stars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller who out of the three would be “most likely to be in a Star Wars movie”, and Efron reluctantly admitted he was already in the running.

The star responded, “Yeah, I just went and met with them (Disney executives). So I don’t know. It would be cool. I love the Star Wars movies I love them, but who knows?”

The news of Efron’s possible involvement comes weeks after Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams confirmed that Breaking Bad star Jesse Plemons is also in talks for a major role.
Abrams went on to reveal that original castmembers Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are all onboard to return.

The film, the first of three new installments, is expected to hit cinemas in December 2015.
