Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o Sets To Co-Star In A New Movie Inspired By Twitter Campaign

About a month ago Twitter users started a campaign to when a photo was posted a photo of Grammy award winner Rihanna and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o. Then another Twitter user went ahead to caption the photo:

That comment caught the eye of the Oscar winning Kenyan star and she tagged Rihanna to the comment saying, “I’m down if you are @rihanna”. Rihanna replied her saying “I’m in Pit’z” (Lupita’s nickname).

Another fan mentioned the idea to producer Issa Rae and she instantly replied with a meme indicating that she’s down for it.

 

 

 

According to Entertainment Weekly, they reported that after a dramatic negotiation session at the Cannes Film Festival, Netflix has nabbed the film project which is expected to be directed by Selma director Ava DuVernay, and Issa Rae is also said to be in talks for the screenplay.

According to sources, Entertainment Weekly said Issa Rae is already working on the script and the studio is eyeing a production start of 2018 after DuVernay completes her current film.
