Star Wars 7: Sorry, Tom Cruise won't be making an appearance
Cruise was rumoured to have met with JJ Abrams about doing a cameo
A representative for Tom Cruise has shot down reports that he will appear in Star Wars 7, insisting that rumours of the Cruiser sprinting in a galaxy far, far away are 'false'.
The gossip originated in The Sun, which claimed that Cruise had met with JJ Abrams about doing a cameo and even cited the specific hotel they met in.
"Tom has been in London for over a week and met up with J.J. and some other people [from the production]" a source told the tabloid.
“On Saturday evening five of them met up for dinner and drinks at the Belgravia Hotel. J.J. loves working with Tom whenever he gets the chance." The Episode VII cast during a read-through at Pinewood Studios
A representative for the Edge of Tomorrow actor since confirmed to showbiz rumour-busting site Gossip Cop that the reports are 'false' however.
It looks like we won't get to see Cruise in a Jedi cloak then, though there have been plenty of interesting genuine cast additions in recent weeks including Girls' Adam Driver, Inside Llewyn Davis' Oscar Isaac and 12 Years A Slave's Lupita Nyong'o.
Production on the film has faced setbacks recently after Han Solo actor Harrison Ford crushed his ankle in a Millenium Falcon door on set and had to be taken to hospital.
