(Kenya) Lupita Teams Up With Pop Star Rihanna for a Movie

Black Girls Rock!

Fans are a powerful lot. They drove Jimmy Gait to tears. The poor chap cried on live TV. And now, through their strong will, they have willed a LupitaRihanna buddy movie into existence over a picture the two took together at the Miu Miu fashion show in 2014.

It started with a Tweet. The photo then went viral and one user Whoopherasskourtni tweeted it out joking that in the image ” Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans.”

Many tweets later, where fans made demands for a LupitaRihanna movie, Lupita responded with: “I’m down if you are” and things got more interesting when Rihanna tweeted back “I’m in Pit’z (Lupita nickname within celebrity circles)”.

On Sunday, Entertainment Weekly reported that Netflix had secured a deal for the film concept at the Cannes Film Festival after a dramatic negotiation session. Oscar winner Lupita will co-star with Grammy winner Rihanna in the yet to be named film. It will be directed by Ava Duvernay and written by Issa Rae (From Insecure).
