Latino-Review just spilled about an interesting Star Wars Episode VII rumor. High School Musical heartthrob Zac Efron and everyone’s favorite Ryan, Ryan Gosling are currently being considered for the upcoming Star Wars franchise.

If they were looking to lure in more female fans for the franchise that practically invented the term “fanboy”, this is definitely a step in the right direction. Both have pretty dedicated fan bases and actually have skills to boot. Obviously, Ryan Gosling is one of the leading actors today, but Zac Efron is more than just a pretty face. He’s done some solid work in lesser seen films like Me and Orson Welles, The Paperboy, and At Any Price.

While there’s nothing definite, Latino-Review did hear that Ryan Gosling is up for the role of Luke Skywalker’s son with the film taking place thirty years after the original trilogy.

Stay tuned as more rumors develop in the lead up to Disney’s D23 Expo. More Star Wars and Marvel news will sure to be announced there.
