Rumored: Lupita Nyong'o eyed for Star Wars Eps VII
12 Years a Slave's Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o is rumored to be in talks for an unknown part in Star Was Eps VII. She would star opposite Adam Driver (HBO’s Girls) as the Darth Vader-like lead villain.
Again this is just a rumor and nothing has been confirmed. The production of the film is to start in April so expect officail casting annoucemenst anytime soon.
Lawrence Kasdan (The Empire Strikes Back, Raiders of the Lost Ark) and J.J. Abrams will provide the script, which they reworked after the initial script was done by Michael Arndt (Toy Story 3). John Willams return to score the music for Eps VII is the only thing confirmed.
