It's being rumored that Lupita Nyong'o has been cast as Asajj Ventress in Star Wars: Episode VII.

Nyong'o's name has previously surfaced and said to be attached to Star Wars.

While Lupita Nyong'o wasn't a part of the recent casting announcement, it's been said that Disney and J.J. Abrams still had at least one major female casting announcement to make.
