There is "no truth" to the report in the British tabloid The Sun that Tom Cruise is in talks with J.J. Abrams to make a special cameo appearance in Star Wars: Episode VII, says Cruise's rep.

According to a source at The Sun, Tom Cruise has been in London (where Episode VII has been filming) for the past week. "On Saturday evening five of them met up for dinner and drinks at the Belgravia Hotel," The Sun's source said. "J.J. produced M:I5 and loves working with Tom whenever he gets the chance. Losing Harrison is going to set things back a little scheduling wise and there’s some time to play around with."

A spokesperson for Cruise however, tells ET Canada the story is pure fiction.

If the report were true, Episode VII would have been the third time in a row in which Cruise had appeared in a film alongside aliens (following Oblivion and Edge of Tomorrow).
