Lupita Nyong'o Making Big Announcement in 'Very Near Future'

Lupita Nyong’o rocks a chic yellow scarf while making her way out of the Greenwich Hotel on Thursday evening (April 17) in New York City.

The 31-year-old actress has yet to pick her next role following her Oscar-winning turn in the film 12 Years a Slave and she’s making the rest of us wait on pins and needles!

While no casting news has been announced yet, her agent tells the New York Daily News that “a big announcement will be made in the very near future.”

One of the rumors that has been spreading around is that Lupita has discussed a role in Star Wars: Episode VII, but nothing has been confirmed yet!

FYI: Lupita is wearing a Janessa Leone hat.

    I hope she retires but I doubt it, she’s now where near cool like Jack Gleeson.
    Also, she’s not pretty like we’re being brainwashed to believe.

    Is being in Star Wars such a big deal? Another CGI riddled film sci fi film by JJ Abrams…he’ll botch it up like he botched Star Trek…she’ll be filming it for two years and out of circulation for other films.

    To Truth
    I think she’s very pretty. Her facial features are very soft and symmetrical and doll-like. But we have been brainwashed for the decades by the media that dark is ugly. And lupita is extra dark so it’s really going to be hard for some to see beauty in her as she challenges the western standard of of beauty with her having a low cut and being extra dark.

    As for the announcement, i don’t think it going to be Star Wars. I think she will get projects in the future though. she is a good actress, she has a charming personality and people like her.

    @Marie: Very well said @Marie . I’m still dumbfounded that some women in this day and age are so spiteful and bitter towards other women , specially if these women are successful in their career. Such shame after all the crap women has endured you would think some would be happy when their own gender is doing well in an industry that is mostly ruled by men .. SMH … anyway very ecxited for her cause she is very talented and beautiful !

    It has nothing to do with her skin tone which is gorgeous. This girl isn’t stunning, she’s aight. Lauryn Hill at her good days was far more prettier, and she has never got all this attention. Ajak Deng, a Sudanese model who have the same type of beauty is gorgeous too. Lupita is charming, classy, well-spoken, but not gorgeous.

    I don’t think it’s Star Wars because people are already talking about that. It’s something else..a surprise. This reminds me of Chloe Moretz when she also posted something like that and everybody thought it would be KIck-Ass 2 but eventually it was Hugo.

    I agree that Ajak Dieng is gorgeous but In my honest opinion, lupita is much prettier than Lauren Hill. That might just be me though be cuz am obsessed with lupita’s face! I also noticed that she is not very photogenic but looks amazing on film.

    @choop: you mean one can’t think they’re both gorgeous? Get out of town!

    Lupita is gorgeous, and has a classy fashion sense, demeanor and articulation about her that makes her appealing to the mainstream. Lauryn’s look , behavior, and style were not mainstream and she didn’t want it to be. She’s a musician and they can do what they want anyway.

    Ugonna Wosu Says:

    @To chopp: who’s not photogenic? Cause its in her photos that everyone oohs and aahs(Lupita). Whereas in the movie 12 Years, she didn’t look her best anyway. She looks good in interviews though.

    By the decree of the Loa, Lupita is with her first child fathered by Michael Fassbender. The Loa knows.

    @ # 10

    Agree. She’s elegant, attractive, and has talent.

    You can’ be “brainwashed” into anything. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and this has been true since the dawn of time. We find people attactive due to OUR feelings, it coukld be the way a person talks, or the look in their eyes or their humor. Physically, we are all attracted to what is familiar, at first, even certain face shapes or teeth….

    I find her pretty but NOT spectacular, like Iman was when she was a supermodel. I would like to see her in Star Wars if she is right for the role and not just trendy or politically correct. She would make a good jedi.

    The fawning over anyone in a phony slave movie is off the hook. Everytime there is one is like “a revelation”. No, it’s not, it’s a movie. It’s just amazing to me. The movie, based on a book, was not even written by an American. It’s stretches the truth just like anything in Hollywood, and also the fact that Hollywood seems to treat actors in slave movies if they were somehow traumatized for doing a role. I bet people think Django Unchained is some factual event. Not anymore than Kill Bill is an accuragte reflection of assassins.

    I won’t ever watch 12 years, with a bunch of foreigners that never lived in the Southa nbd dn’t get it. Just like the Maid, the butler, or the secret life of bees because it’s all scripted white hatred. And it’s ridiculous.
