Matt Smith has reportedly signed up for the latest Star Wars movie.

The Crown actor, who played the Prince Phillip in the hit Netflix show, has scored himself a role alongside Daisy Ridley, John Boyega and Oscar Isaac, according to Variety.

Its not known which major role that may be, or even whether hes part of the first order or hes in with the resistance. But just knowing Matt Smith is involved is good enough at this stage.

Lord Of The Rings actor Dominic Monaghan is also said to have signed up to Episode 9 to be part of the all star cast, along with fellow Star Wars newbie actors Naomi Ackie, Richard E. Grant and Keri Russell.

Samuel L Jackson is up for reprising his role too, except for the fact he was killed off in Revenge Of The Sith.

The film will feature never-before-seen footage of the late Carrie Fisher, as she will appear as Leia via unused footage from The Force Awakens.

JJ Abrams is at the head of the project, having directed The Force Awakens.

Filming is already underway, with production set to be just outside of London as John Boyega and Chewy have both been spotted on set.

Although the pictures dont give away much, they seem to show a scene between the rebels with a batch of new faces in the English countryside.

Star Wars: Episode IX is slated for a December 2019 release.
