Rumor: Lupita Nyong’o 'Close' To Being Cast In Episode VII

By: Benjamin Hart

The Latino Review strikes back with another casting rumor! Today they are reporting that Lupita Nyong’o, who just won an Oscar for her performance in 12 Years A Slave, is "So close" to being cast in Star Wars Episode VII. Latino Review's Kellvin Chavez writes:

We can report that there’s a recent Oscar winner who has been reading for a part for over the past month and she’s extremely close to signing onto the movie: 12 Years A Slave‘s Lupita Nyong’o.

The part Nyong’o has been reading for a is a major female role and doesn’t seem to be tied into the family lines from Episodes 4-6.

Calls were made to Lupita’s reps and they responded, “We’re not allowed to talk about that.”

From what I heard, Lupita might be going up for a a sith!

A Female villain in Episode VII would be a very interesting change from what has come before, and one that I think fans would be pleased to see. Her Oscar win clearly illustrates her talent, she would be a fine addition to the Episode VII cast. But, as always, nothing is official until Lucasfilm says so.
