Rumor: Gina Rodriguez cast in Star Wars: Episode VIII?

Jedi News has some fun circumstantial evidence that Gina Rodriguez has been cast in Star Wars: Episode VIII that is noteworthy:

Golden Globe winner Gina Rodriguez (“Jane the Virgin”), was previously rumoured to be in contention for a part in Rian Johnson’s Episode VIII.
Those rumours may now step up after eagled eyed twitter user Tony spotted that both Rian Johnson and John Boyega are now following her on twitter.
Time will tell if it pans out! Thanks to Jedi News for making that connection and Mike Jones for sharing the heads up!
