Chiwetel Ejiofor Cast In “Star Wars: Episode VII”?

November 3, 2013

In order to hit their 2015 release date, Star Wars: Episode VII director J.J. Abrams, and producer Kathleen Kennedy, will need to start signing some of the numerous actors who have auditioned. Expect a lot of news to come closer to production.

One report from Jedi News claims that a casting decision has been made involving Chiwetel Ejiofor (12 Years A Slave). They report:

“We understand that British actor Chiwetel Ejiofor (Serenity), who was a very early consideration for a role in the film and who also met with J.J. Abrams this week, will be joining the cast of Episode VII in an as yet undisclosed role.”

Jedi News made this claim at the same time The Times posted an article revealing that Ejiofor was at J.J. Abrams’ office this past week. Time will tell if this casting news is true or if they’re just connecting dots.
