Star Wars Anthology: Riz Ahmed and Sam Clafin up for parts in Rogue One?

Garth Edwards’ Star Wars Anthology film Rogue One might have cast Riz Ahmed in a major role and Sam Clafin is heavily rumored to be up for a part as well.

Variety writes:

Ahmed was among a group of young actors who had been meeting with Edwards for the last month in London while the director prepped for the film. Sources say Ahmed’s chemistry test with Jones separated him from the pack for Edwards and production execs.

With the movie being about soldiers, I imagine we will see a lot of parts being cast very soon as the movie begins shooting this Summer.

Thanks to @GavinBooth for the heads up!

Edit:

Sam Claflin is also heavily rumored right now to be in the film.
