A new report about Ryan Gosling meeting with J.J. Abrams and Lucasfilm to discuss "Star Wars: Episode VII" has been denied by the stars representatives.
According to the film site Latino Review, Gosling met with the "Star Wars" production team to discuss playing Luke Skywalker's son in the highly anticipated sequel. "This is not true," Gosling's reps wrote in an email to HuffPost Entertainment. (The Latino Review story also makes mention of Zac Efron as another possibility for "Episode VII." An email to Efron's representatives has not yet been returned.)
For what it's worth, Gosling has expressed a desire to back away from acting in the short term. "I've been doing it too much," he told The Associated Press in March. "I've lost perspective on what I'm doing. I think it's good for me to take a break and reassess why I'm doing it and how I'm doing it. And I think this is probably a good way to learn about that. I need a break from myself as much as I imagine the audience does."
Since that interview, Gosling hasn't attached himself to any new projects. He'll next be seen in Terrence Malick's untitled and undated film with Natalie Portman, Michael Fassbender, Christian Bale, Rooney Mara and a host of other big names. (It's Malick, however, so which stars actually wind up appearing in the film -- and when it will get released -- remains a guessing game.) Gosling also has his directorial debut, "How to Catch a Monster," set for release in 2014. He reportedly won't appear in that film.
