While J.J. Abrams has been very secretive about his new movie, it has been circulating all around that Lupita Nyong’o and Zac Efron have been confirmed as cast members in Star Wars Episode VII. According to a source close to production, Nyong’o will be playing a character named Asajj Ventress.
Another source reported Ventress as “a former slave trained to be a Jedi. She decides to take revenge on her trainer’s killers by killing them with a lightsaber. She becomes a dark Jedi.”
There are no reports on what character Efron will play. Both actor’s names have been noticeably missing from the cast list that was announced this weekend. Perhaps J.J. is still trying to keep these big stars a secret.
What do you think? Is this just another Hollywood rumor or do you hope they will make an appearance in one of the biggest cinematic films?
Efron is currently starring in Neighbors with Seth Rogen and Nyong’o will be starring in the new Jungle Book movie which comes out in 2015.
