Rumor currently has it that Shaun of the Dead star Simon Pegg could land himself a part in Star Wars: Episode VII as some sort of mysterious role.

Harrison Ford Is 'Not' Excited To Play Han Solo?

On Wednesday, IGN apparently received news from a source that Pegg was spotted on the set to shoot scenes in Abu Dhabi. There's no word on who or what he'd be playing, but the site said that it's a "secret role."

This would be a change from something Pegg had recently said about the Star Wars films where he mentioned that he wasn't that supportive of himself being a part of one.

Film Will 'Deliver Extraordinary Cinematic Experiences?'

"I don't think it would be appropriate for me to be in it, to be honest," he said. "I think J.J. [Abrams] should cast new faces with no stunt casting."

Some actors who are set to be in the film include Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley and John Boyega. Harrison Ford, Carrie Fisher and Mark Hamill are also expected to reprise their roles as Han Solo, Princess Leia and Luke Skywalker, respectively.

Hamill recently told Orlando Sentinel what he's had to change since signing on for the film as well as what he's seen on set so far.

"I've altered my diet. I've started working out," he said. "There's that. But on the film itself: I toured the departments, I've looked at wardrobe, and I saw the creature shop. I went around and met all the cast people, saw the technicians working on some new things."

Star Wars: Episode VII is expected to hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
