Reports claim Lupita met with Star Wars Episode VII director JJ Abrams a few weeks prior to winning the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress.
When asked for comment, a rep for the 12 Years A Slave star told Latino Review, 'We’re not allowed to talk about that.'
While specifics of the character have not been disclosed, Lupita is the latest name thrown into the casting mix for roles in the highly secretive Star Wars sequel.
While details of the cast are not confirmed, the movie is scheduled to hit theaters on December 18, 2015.
