Lupita Nyong’o is in talks to star in the upcoming science fiction flick, Star Wars VII. The Hollywood darling reportedly met with director J.J. Abrams just before the Academy Awards about the project, and there’s whispers she could land a lead role.
John Boyega is also one of five actors in talks for the male lead, which means two Black stars could be the face of a blockbuster film.
The actress’ name is also being mentioned for a starring role in Americanah. The project is based on a novel about a Nigerian immigrant, Ifemelu, who comes to America on a college scholarship, and faces what it means to be African versus African-American.
