LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27 (UPI) -- "Girls" cast member Adam Driver is in final negotiations to play a villain in director J.J. Abrams' "Star Wars: Episode VII," the Hollywood Reporter said.

No details regarding the part, Driver's presumptive co-stars, or the film's plot were immediately available, the entertainment industry trade newspaper said.

The movie is due to start shooting in London this spring.

The last film in the "Star Wars" franchise, "Revenge of the Sith," was released in 2005. It was the final of three prequels to the original "Star Wars" trilogy released in the 1970s and '80s. "Episode VII" will take place after the first six films.
