According to Variety, citing several sources, Russell is preparing to join the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX of The Force Awakens Helmer JJ Abrams. If that's true, it would not be the first time that Russell and Abrams worked together – the last couple worked on Mission: Impossible III in 2006.
Keri Russell is reported in "Star Wars: Episode IX"
The role, the report says, requires action-heavy sequences. This is not a problem for Russell as she can perform some of the toughest stunts on The Americans for which she received an Emmy nomination in 2016 and 2017. Her stations on Dawn of the Planet of Apes and the aforementioned Mission Impossible film prove she is more than capable of beating herself in front of the camera.
Lucasfilm and Abrams met with a group of other actresses before finally selecting Russell directly in front of the camera July 4 holiday. Variety says Abrams will probably play two more actors when the movie starts at the end of the month. Daisy Ridley, who played Rey in The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi ; John Boyega, who played Finn; Oscar Isaac, who played Poe Dameron; and it is expected that Adam Driver, who played Kylo Ren, will return.
Abrams was attached to the project after director Colin Trevorrow overruled creative differences. Abrams was asked to shoot the film in the fall of last year and has since been working on the script with Oscar-winning screenwriter Chris Terrio.
There is virtually no information about Russell's character at the moment. It's not even clear if she's going to be on the dark side, or if she's going to cross paths with Rey, Finn, or any of the new characters.
Will Princess Leia in & # 39; Star Wars: Episode IX & # 39; be?  Similarly, it is not yet clear how Princess Leia will fit into the new episode. Many fans had speculated that her character would die in The Last Jedi since the actress she played, the legendary Carrie Fisher, passed away in 2016. Princess Leia was very much alive in The Last Jedi however. So it will be interesting to see how Abrams plans to release her legacy in the upcoming movie.
