Benedict Cumberbatch Drops Star Wars Episode VII Hint
Sherlock star revives hopes that we'll see him in sci-fi sequel...
The Sherlock star was teasingly coy on the subject while filming his appearance on tonight's The Graham Norton Show - leading fans to get excited about seeing him with a lightsaber.
Asked by the host whether he'd be appearing in the JJ Abrams-directed movie, the 38-year-old actor did not rule it out - saying instead: "No comment."
And he added: "I went to the set. It was incredible."
But he then appeared to think better of his answers and told Norton: "I probably shouldn't be saying these things."
Set for release at the end of next year, the new movie will feature original trilogy stars Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill.
And new faces appearing in the movie will include Daisy Ridley, Adam Driver, Andy Serkis, Max von Sydow, Lupita Nyong'o and Gwendoline Christie.
