Red Tails’ David Oyelowo & Michael B. Jordan for Star Wars Episode VII?
David Oyelowo and Michael B. Jordan supposedly went in for Star Wars VII talks according to Latino Review. When @elmayimbe broke the news on the world’s most annoying video podcast, I didn’t think much of it. Then it became clear that both men were in Red Tails and that’s not what makes me believe it, but what makes me think at the worst it is a very believable fake. Like everything out of Latino Review Star Wars related, we don’t have an opinion on the reliability. We can’t say. It won’t be until we get a little ways into production that the validity of these claims can be confirmed.
My wife Amanda blogged about David Oyelowo being a great possible young Mace Windu back in February. She was either on the money or this is so “fancasted” it was bound to happen eventually. She was just having fun, but she hit it well enough that the actor is supposedly in talks for the new Star Wars movie.
By the way, if you haven’t seen Red Tails yet, you should. [amazon asin=B005LAIGNC&template=thumbnail&chan=default]
