If you’re a big fan of The Americans, you’re gonna love this.

Variety is reporting that Keri Russell is in talks to join the cast of Star Wars: Episode IX—reuniting with director J.J. Abrams for the first time since Mission: Impossible III. They previously collaborated on the televised drama Felicity.

According to Variety‘s sources, project leads (including Abrams) have been meeting with various actresses for several weeks. They finally decided on Russell for the role earlier this week.

Very little is known about Russell’s character and that’s appropriate considering the mystery surrounding the film’s release. Speculation on Episode IX‘s working title change has been spinning since last month and we’re still in the dark on where our rebels are headed.

If this casting is confirmed by Lucasfilm, Russell will be adding to an already star studded cast with plenty of Last Jedi alumni. Hopefully, we’ll get more info on new cast members before filming commences in August.

Until then, the 2019 premiere date is going to keep feeling far, far away.

This time around, however, his foray into the genre is in a producing role. On Monday, Zemeckis talked about the two projects: Bios, the upcoming feature film; and Project Blue Book, a television series that premieres in January on History.

Bios, scheduled to start filming early next year, reunites Zemeckis with one of his most celebrated collaborators. “We’re producing a really magnificent science fiction project called Bios with Tom Hanks,” Zemeckis said. “It’s a really cool science-fiction story. It’s set in a post-apocalytptic world and Tom Hanks may or may not be the last human survivor on the planet.”

Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment picked Bios up in October. The script is by Craig Luck (Solo: A Star Wars Movie) and Ivor Powell (Blade Runner).

Spielberg described the movie in an October statement as “an original, emotionally stirring tale that at its core is very much an Amblin movie” and added that he could think of “no one more perfect to embody this story about the meaning of being human than Tom Hanks.”

Hanks will portray Finch, the last man on earth, who………………………………………”
