We asked this very question last year, but now Dominic himself has hinted that he may be moving closer to joining the next highly-anticipated installment to the Star Wars franchise:
We’ve talked a few times about it, (Abrams) said ‘We’re putting together a cast of unknowns. We want to follow the ’77 New Hope cast because obviously Harrison Ford wasn’t well known at that point, Mark Hamill wasn’t and Carrie Fisher wasn’t either. –Dweebcast
Monaghan is most well known for his work on Lost, another Abrams project, and as Merriadoc Brandybuck in Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy. He’s been relatively quiet on the global scale in recent years, but a role in Episode VII could very easily launch him back into the spotlight.
