Sir Ben Kingsley responds to Star Wars Episode VII rumour

Did he audition? Sir Ben talks...

Last week, the Internet was ablaze with news stories claiming Sir Ben Kingsley had read for a Star Wars Episode VII role.

So when we spoke to Sir Ben about his new sci-fi epic Ender's Game, we made sure to poke his brains on the rumours.

We'd certainly be happy if those rumours were true. After all, Sir Ben spoke to us fairly passionately about the project this summer, during his Iron Man 3 promotion.

Sadly, it appears that the story isn't true.

Well, either that or Sir Ben is just really, really good at dodging awkward questions. Watch below and see what you think.

And if you want to hear Sir Ben talk more about Star Wars, he's at the top of this video. 

Ender's Game is in UK cinemas 26 October 2013.

      Why on Earth should he apologise for being brilliant in one of the year's most entertaining films?

      Unless I missed some irony in your comment - directed at the silly fanboy backlash - in which case I'M sorry. ;)

      Iron Man 3 was awful, just awful and Kingsly is partly to blame.
