Mads Mikkelsen Reveals His Character In Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

He'd previously gone as far as to say that he isn't playing a villain. Now Mads Mikkelsen has evaded the spoiler police once again and revealed a little bit more about his role in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. If you consider such things to be spoilers, read no further, young Padawan.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Trailer-

So Felicity Jones is playing a rebellious soldier called Jyn Erso, and it turns out that Mikkelsen's character has what you might call a blood tie to Jones'. "I read the script and it was very beautiful," Mikkelsen told Sky News, "and Felicity is playing this lovely, strong woman and I play her father." We still don't know his character's name, but we're going to hazard that "Erso" is in there somewhere. Mr Alan Erso, perhaps. Head of the PTA at Yavin High.

Extrapolating properly, we might surmise that Erso Sr. and his daughter are somewhat estranged, since we know from the trailer that Jyn brought herself up on her own from the age of 15. Or, on the other hand, that "beautiful" might suggest early scenes or flashbacks presenting happier times before Jyn was alone. Is it possible that something happens to him at the hands of the Imperials, sending Jyn on her journey towards the Rebellion? "That was too much," apologises Mikkelsen. But he really hasn't told us much at all...

Gareth Edwards finished cranking his cameras on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story at the end of last year, with the post-production process now well underway.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
