Shaun Of The Dead star Simon Pegg sent Star Wars and James Bond fans into a frenzy yesterday.

The actor hinted that Daniel Craig could make a surprise cameo in the new Star Wars film The Force Awakens.

Shaun Of The Dead star Pegg himself was rumoured to be appearing as a Stormtrooper in the new movie, but he denied it in The Sun.

“I wasn’t a Stormtrooper,” he said. “Daniel Craig, he was a Stormtrooper.”

He then added: “I shouldn’t have said that.”

Cue massive speculation and excitement on the internet.

 

 

 

But Pegg clearly soon regretted his slip, as he moved to clarify he was only repeating a rumour he’d heard elsewhere.

He told the website Collider: “Why is everyone leaping on this? It was a rumour last summer, wasn’t it? I read it in the paper. It may be untrue, like most of the other rumours, like Cumberbatch and Cruise being in it.”

Still, just because it’s a rumour doesn’t mean it’s not true…
