Lucas casts Star Wars TV series
Star Wars creator George Lucas is casting actors for a live action TV series based on the legendary sci-fi franchise.
Lucas announced plans for a small screen Star Wars spin-off back in 2005.
And although he revealed in 2007 he and his team were writing scripts for the project, the long hiatus has caused fans to question its indefinite release.
But Rose Byrne, who starred in 2002's Star Wars Episode II: Attack Of The Clones, as Dorme, has revealed bosses are already considering actors for the sci-fi series.
She tells MTV, "A lot of my friends have been auditioning for it."
Lucas is expected to write and shoot an entire year's worth of episodes before looking to TV networks to host the show, which is projected to air by 2011.
