Ryan Gosling has not met with representatives for Disney and Lucasfilm regarding a role in Star Wars Episode VII, according to representatives for the star.

"This is not true," Gosling's people told The Huffington Post when faced with a Latino Review report from earlier in the week suggesting that the Gangster Squad actor was being considered to play the son of Luke Skywalker in the upcoming science-fiction sequel.

The rumor site contends that the film, which reportedly takes place thirty years after the events of Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi, was originally courting Leonardo DiCaprio, but that he’s out and that Zac Efron and Gosling are the current names on the agenda.
