Are Michael B. Jordan And David Oyelowo Joining Star Wars: Episode VII?


A new day and a new Star Wars: Episode VII rumor, will it never end? This time, we’re hearing from Latino Review, who usually don’t disappoint, that David Oyelowo and Michael B. Jordan are up for parts in the film. No word on which roles they are seeking but apparently, they have both had meetings and are in consideration.

In other Star Wars: Episode VII news (did you really think that was it for today?), director J.J. Abrams recently spoke with EW and told them that he wants to make the film feel authentic.

Check out his quote below:

“I would say we are working really hard to make a movie that feels as emotional and authentic and exciting as possible. I remember reading a thing somewhere, someone wrote about just wanting [the new film] to feel real; to feel authentic. I remember I felt that way when I was 11 years old when I saw the first one. As much of a fairy tale as it was, it felt real. And to me, that is exactly right.” 

So, there you have it. Your daily fill of Star Wars: Episode VII news that again, really doesn’t make much of a difference in our lives and still leaves us with very little to go on when it comes to what the film will turn out like.
