Zac Efron - Zac Efron in talks for Star Wars

Zac Efron is in talks to appear in 'Star Wars: Episode VII'.

The 'That Awkward Moment' actor has met with movie bosses about a role in the new episode of the sci-fi franchise, which has recently been acquired by Disney.

Asked if he'd take a part in the movie, he told MTV: ''Yeah, I just went and met with them. So I don't know. It would be cool. I love [the 'Star Wars' movies], but... who knows?''

'Star Wars: Episode VII' will be directed by J.J. Abrams and actors linked to roles include Michael Fassbender, Michael B Jordan, Saoirse Ronan, Jesse Plemons, Adam Driver and Hugo Weaving.

It has also been rumoured many of the actors from the original trilogy - shot in the 70s and 80s - such as Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Anthony Daniels and Kenny Baker could reprise their roles.

Carrie Fisher, 57, also recently told how she'd like to play her character, Princess Leia, again, saying: ''I'd like to wear my old [cinnamon buns] hairstyle again - but with white hair. I think that would be funny.''

JJ has yet to announce any firm cast decisions, but recently said the film's script is complete.

'Star Wars: Episode VII' is tentatively scheduled for release in December 2015.
