Thanks to Twitter! Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o will co-star in film together




Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o will finally star in a film together 3 years after fans called for the duo to co-star in a film.
Entertainment Weekly revealed that, after a dramatic negotiation session at the Cannes Film Festival, Netflix has nabbed a film project pairing Grammy winner Rihanna with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, in a concept that began as a Twitter sensation.

Ava DuVernay (Selma) will direct, and Issa Rae (Insecure) is writing the screenplay.

According to sources, Netflix landed the project in a very aggressive bid, beating out multiple other suitors. Netflix had no comment.
