Is This Adam Driver on the Latest Greenham Common Pics?

aerial photograph of Newbury Berkshire  England UK

Rick Lawrence posted on Facebook everything he got from the Greenham Common pics. One particular image was kinda surprising…

 

 

There might be potential SPOILERS ahead. 

 

 

Here are some of the latest photos from the set, showing what looks like Adam Driver as an X-Wing pilot. Pretty shocking considering all the rumors that he is actually playing a villain. You can also see John Boyega on some of the photos. I don’t think we should be quickly jumping to any conclusions here. This scene has a very retro vibe to me so I won’t be surprised if this is actually a flashback scene (yeah, I know) or something. (click the images for bigger versions)

What do you think, is that Adam Driver? And that blond girl in the last pic do have a slight resemblance with Gwendoline Christie, doesn’t she?

    Unless you have higher resolution photos or have even seen them, I don’t think any of the three are who you think they are.
    The guy that might be Driver has lighter hair than in recent pics. Yes they could have lightened it since.
    The Boyega guy has his back turned and you can’t even see his face.
    The blonde girl to me looks like she could be a he from that distance.

    I’m not sure on either. Is it possible that JJ is purposely portraying some things a certain way in front of the camera in order to throw off fans?

    Every black guy is John Boyega.

    We don’t need to see his face, just his skin color.

    • Anonymous

      Right?!

      Viral Hide, I didn’t know you were a racist who thinks all black people look alike?

      • I guess you guys missed the video where an assistant was shouting: John Boyega, Boyega!
        I just connected the dots.

        • JeffG

          I’ve seen the video. I’m saying there is probably more than one black guy on set and we can’t see this guys face.

          • Tirindo

            Remember: Any black man on the set is John Boyega, unless he is Lupita Nyong’o.

            • JarJar A.

              Good, Viral Hide got the point. Just one black man per day in my set. As I was screaming John Boyega, yes that day the bro was Boyega.

              Seriously,you guys are a bit racist here.

        • Anonymous

          If that is Boyega we’re looking at, then he seems to be dressed the same as the majority of the others – x-wing pilots?.

          If every actor you just named is in fact the people in these images, then let me be the first to say “I have a bad feeling about this..”

      Holy crap, guys. Get off the dude’s ass. I’m a black guy, but I don’t see the point in that kneejerk reaction.

      If there was only one white male in the main cast, would you have given the same response?

      Biggest laugh I have had all day…LOL

      “Every Black guy is John Boyega!”

      John Boyega is probably reading this and saying WTF! LOL And really saying who is that person in the picture? LOL HA ha ha ha…

      I love the PT reviews by Mr. Plinkett, but also like the PTs themselves. Its gonna be great.

        I knew the costumes were going to be plain and bad, ever since we learned it was the same designer who worked on “Into Darkness.”

        • RTF1138

          No offense but the costumes were not the worst part of Into Darkness. Talk about a let down of a movie. In terms of how mad i was when Into Darkness came out I was way… way more offended at that “film” and how it handled the characters, the plot, and nearly everything then i was at the Prequels. JJ hurt me more than George Lucas and i know i am in the minority but as stated before i like the the PT for what they are. With that being said i can not wait to see Ep VII and everything so far (minus a luke hand) has really been pretty awesome.

          • The writers hurt you. I think Jeffrey Jacob Abrams was just on that movie for the paycheck.

            • RTF1138

              I have nothing against JJ, he seems like a great guy and he has always stated that Star Wars was his favorite Sci-fi franchise growing up not Star Trek and sadly it really shows. I’m hopeful that Ep. VII is more then a paycheck to him this time. He has a vision i’ll give him that, but the scripts to his films really need another draft or two.

  • Andrew Fry

    ;that looks like Adam Driver to me – entirely plausible of course that he could be an x-wing pilot and villain bearing in mind the rumoured blurring between good/evil.

    The girl in the last picture isn’t even blonde she clearly has brown hair

      He’s referring to the androgynous being to her right.

  • RedHarvest
    • Yes I saw that. Daniel Craig was at Pinewood because Bond 24 starts pre-production there. He might have visited the Episode VII set but just as a guest. No involvement. At least that what I heard.

  • Anonymous

    Guys, clearly we have Adam, Boyega, Daisy, Harrison, all the star wars vii cast in these photos. And as extras, no less.

  • Anonymous

    Driver is the only comparable one, however I think they are all extras. They wouldn’t let the big names just walk around uncloaked between dressing room to the sets, especially when they are trying to be secretive.

  • Anonymous

    Maybe they are stand-ins? The similarities to Driver and Ford are uncanny, this is gold, possibly biggest leak yet IMO. We now know Driver’s character’s allegiance and profession.

  • Tirindo

    If Driver is some “version” of Jacen Solo (irrespective of what name they finally gave the character), he would start out as a good guy and then deteriorate into Darth Whatever.

    But will they go for a plot that many would say simply rehashes Anakin’s fall? Perhaps the Driver = villain rumours are altogether bogus.

    It may also be that this time around, the lines between good and evil are not at all as clear and obvious as they used to be in this setting. Whether Driver plays a villain or a hero may then not be a simple either-or question, but more of a both-and.

    It has been suggested that questions of morality are a chief theme in the Sequel Trilogy, like the Prequel Trilogy was about Machiavellian politics and the Original Trilogy was a very straightforward good-vs-evil struggle. I am hoping for some philosophical depth, and a recognition that “villains” rarely perceive themselves as evil.

    Judging by these pictures I can now understand what Kevin Smith was getting at with his ‘tactile’ description of Star Wars 7. I think it’s going to be heavily influenced by the land battle on Hoth and the Death Star battle from IV, the parts we loved as kids combined with the spiritual side of things with the jedi sequences. My gut tells me they’re nailing it harder than some of us could ever imagine. I love the costumes too.

  • Ree Yees

    So the cast are all part of the same faction…sounds good to me. Love how unspoiled we seemingly are.

    And I bet that’s Gwendolie. 2500 credits!

  • Cosmicdolphin

    Driver has a very distinctive shape face & hair…Looks just like him to me.

    Not so sure about the others.

  • Neil

    Those are girls in that last picture? Also, what’s up with the 1930s style clothes?

      Imagine how many days it would have been had you KNOWN about them once you left the cinema after watching Revenge of the Sith.

      That would have been quite unbearable, hm?

      Your ignorance was bliss!

  • Stephen

    I’ve been thinking for some time that Episode VII is going to be totally different and much much simpler than people are speculating.

  • Anonymous

    That blonde woman looks like Christie all right, however as Christie is 6ft 3ins, the woman to her right should be about 5ft 9ins – but she looks quite a bit shorter than that.

  • Anonymous

    Adam driver was at the toronto international film fest this past week,so highly unlikely unless these photos are from more than a few days ago

  • Anonymous

    The smaller woman beside ‘Gwen Christie’ is also in the top ‘Adam Driver’ photo to the right of photo.

  • It’s a trap !

    Anyone else getting a ‘ Star Trek Academy cadets ‘ vibe from these pics ?

    Let’s hope Ep 7 is more Trek 09 than into Darkness !

    And lay of Viral people ! He made an educated guess based off the info he had ! Anyone who read racist intent is just plain daft !

    Finaly seeing the orange X Wing Piolit gear = Chills : )

    That is Adam Driver X wing pilot!

    Whomever did the screen cleanup (that is, digitally
    clarifying the original blurry images) could have easily altered them just to fool people. And if the images came from you know where,…

    The blonde woman (it definitely looks like a woman) in the top photo could be a main cast member. She also seems to be in the first and second photo of *update 8* – Rick Lawrence.

      As a journalist who studied media law as part of my training I have to say I agree with you. How did he infringe copyright? He didn’t and under UK law he is okay to take pictures from public highways and spaces. If he starts manufacturing star wars suits or stole someone else’s pictures this would be the case, but not taking a few snaps. Absolute bollocks isn’t it?!

    Good evening people I have just received the following email, as I promised it gives me great pleasure in publishing these threats. As I very much doubt that they have THREATENED the BBC or ITV NEWS in the same!

    As well as posting this here I have also posted it on the NewburyToday (NWN) Forums, I also wish to say that I have posted the complete email on facebook, although I would expect facebook to get stroppy.

      How naive are they, really? Once something has hit the Internet, it is there to stay. Period. Even CIA can’t stop the likes of Wikileaks, and then Lucasfilm and Disney would be pretty optimistic to think THEY can do it.

      All they get from such efforts will be bad publicity. They should recognize and embrace the fact that eager fans sharing and analyzing blurry/distant photos is part of the “expectation culture”. Think of it as free publicity!

      Never, never harass and hound the people who share such pretty harmless “leaks”! The second it is on the net it can never be recaptured anyway. Disney dear, you will only risk alienating the fanbase!

      If the producers fail to maintain sufficient security on and around their sets, that is THEIR problem, not that of the fans. In the era of drones and cellphone cameras, it may be well-nigh impossible to shoot scenes in open air without risking “leaks”. Expect it, plan on it, embrace it, work it into your PR strategy!

      And unless we are talking about something really major like the risk of an entire script leaking, NEVER threaten eager fans with legal action! It is bad taste and will not be well received by the community you hope will later pay for movie tickets and action figures.

    I cannot imagine that they would have a male, x-wing pilot with long, flowing black hair. The only way that is happening is if it’s a main character. We know that Driver has long flowing black hair, so they aren’t going to cast an extra who looks just like him.

    Look at this clip of Driver in Girls. Doesn’t it make you think of a lightsaber when he is wielding that plywood around?? It start at like :32 seconds:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=MEcI0rD_SyM#t=33

    With that long flowing hair it will be pretty dramatic when Driver wields his lightsaber.

    I think that it would be really cool to see Skywalker twins be the centerpiece for the new trilogy.

    As another journalist who has also studied media law, and also happened to break the very first photos of the filming of the new movie, which have not been removed from anywhere, I can confirm Cynicalhack above is absolutely right.

    The Star Wars production team don’t have a legal leg to stand on making him remove the pics, and I assume are only trying to threaten him thus because he’s a bloke on Facebook, not a media organisation.

    Though he should probably have started a bidding war rather than bunging them on his Facebook!

    I’m just throwing this out there. But maybe Adam Driver’s character is the person that everyone looks for. Maybe his character starts out the way Luke did in new hope, but somewhere along the line he gets lost. Maybe he crashes his x-wing on the sith home planet… Maybe once at that planet he becomes seduced by the dark side. If Driver’s character is a son of Solo, then I could see the emperor using the son of Leia and Solo to resurrect the sith. Considering the strong force abilities that run in his family. Maybe when word gets back to Han n Leia about there son’s fate, Leia reaches out for the only person who can help which would be her Jedi Master brother Luke Skywalker. Maybe Luke has not been seen for so many years is because he’s searching the galaxy for younglings to be full trained as a Jedi. Whatever the case is I simply can’t wait for the new trilogies. But that floating hand attached to a lightsaber theory is something I pray to god is not part of story line
