rihanna and lupita

After a tweet that started out as a joke went viral and got the internets attention of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o at a Miu Miu fashion show back in 2014 as a movie pitch back in April, it seems it has become a reality. The tweet is said to have originated on Tumblr that read: “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams.” Well this idea was heard! After over 96,000 re-tweets the ladies expressed their interest in doing something together and now Selma director Ava DuVernay has signed on to direct the still untitled film along with Insecure writer Issa Rae. 

The project was pitched to studios at Cannes Film Festival and Netflix came through with the highest bid and are looking at a 2018 release after DuVernay is done with her adaptation of A Wrinkle in Time.
