A spokesperson for the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences released a statement to Access about the report.

"Given the fact that we just confirmed Craig Zadan and Neil Meron to produce, we understand how people might speculate in that fashion, but it's really way too early to have any idea who our host might be in 2014," the statement read.
