From an outsider’s perspective, it seems like one of the most fun events in Los Angeles is filmmaker Jason Reitman’s semi-regular Live Read series. The series  —  where Reitman’s large stable of actor friends take on various roles from classic Hollywood movies  —  gives audiences a chance to hear old favorites in a slightly new way, often mixing together original cast members with new faces and genderswapping key roles to a surprisingly poignant effect. Past highlights have included the original cast of True Romance reuniting for a Live Read and the first public performance of Quentin Tarantino’s in-progress The Hateful Eight screenplay.

For those unfamiliar, director Jason Reitman puts on live reads of famous movie scripts, re-casting the roles with different actors, which often leads to interesting versions of familiar characters and stories. And while he typically sticks to films that are more character-driven and dialogue-oriented, Reitman’s next live read event has to do with something a bit more topical in pop culture: a live read of ‘Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back,’ which has just revealed several of its first cast members.
