Twitter Is Fiendin’ For The Fruition Of A Lupita Nyong’o And Rihanna Movie

This past weekend, a photo of Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o and musician Rihanna from 2014’s Paris Fashion Week went viral and sparked a brilliant idea sparked by Twitter’s best-and-brightest.

The photo features the Bajan beauty in dark shades and a black wig with bangs sitting next to the Black Panther actress, who is donning a sweater, a collared shirt and thick-rimmed specs. Twitter user @1800SADGAL planted a seed conceptualizing the picture, stating that it looks like it could be a still from a film where Rih “scams rich white men and lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the [scams].” According to Nyong’o’s Instagram page, the unofficial title of the film is Cashing In.

Twitter was head-over-heels for the idea, and even some Hollywood big wigs were digging the concept. Helen Estabrook, who produced the film Whiplash, said that she would “more than happily produce” the movie. After some prompting, Ava DuVernay said that she was “ready to call action for these #queens” as the film’s director.

Of course, Rihanna and Nyong’o were down with the idea. Fans seem to want Issa Rae to write the film, and Black-ish’s Yara Shahidi also tried to get in on the action.

So much Black Girl Magic in this film. Let’s hope something happens.
