Theory of Everything star Felicity Jones is returning to a world where losing your body means getting a cool, iconic new voice. According to THR, the actress is in talks to join the Star Wars universe as the lead in the first standalone film. About a Boy's Chris Weitz is currently writing and Godzilla's Gareth Edwards will direct--and it's said he may be drawing from the stuffed bear-filled Breaking Bad pool again. Sources reportedly tell the trade that Aaron Paul and Édgar Ramírez are being eyed for the male lead. The decision of which to approach will depend on Wietz's script, and whether it has a part where someone yells, "The Force, bitch!"
