Zac Efron confirmed he is talking with producers about starring in the new "Star Wars" film.

In an interview with MTV News, reporter Josh Horowitz asked Efron and his "That Awkward Moment" co-stars Michael B. Jordan and Miles Teller who out of the three would be "most likely to be in a 'Star Wars' movie," and Efron said he was already in the running.

"Yeah, I just went and met with them," Efron said. "So I don't know. It would be cool. I love the 'Star Wars' movies. I love them, but who knows?"

"Star Wars: Episode VII" director J.J. Abrams recently confirmed that "Breaking Bad" star Jesse Plemons is also up for a major role. Abrams also confirmed original cast members Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill and Harrison Ford are all onboard to return. The film, the first of three new installments, is expected to hit theaters in December 2015.
