This could potentially be big news if it true. Young Boyega is one of our favorite rising stars and any news that we find we have to deliver to you!

A silent tweet went out last night from John Boyega’s manager in the U.K. According to a post by Shadow And Act, Femi Oguns wondered aloud the status of his breakout client by tweeting, “What’s this? @JBoyega starring as lead in the feature film Dream Collect in South Africa and also the executive producer?! #powwww”

Many are looking forward to seeing what the Attack the Block star is going to do next. There was healthy anticipation for his turn as a young Mike Tyson in HBO’s Da Brick, which would pair Boyega with director Spike Lee. The project was shelved unceremoniously.

Upon anything new breaking, we will keep you posted. Until then, to tide you cinephiles over, be sure to check out the BBC3 docu-drama My Murder and keep an eye on this talented thespian to hit stateside.
