Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o Team Up in Heist Movie FOR REAL!
Crime duo films are exciting, but the classics are few and far between — we have Dog Day Afternoon, we have Thelma and Louise and we have of course, Bonnie and Clyde — and now we have a new famed cinematic duo who commit heists for the good of society — Rhianna and Lupita Nyong’o — and it’s going to be written by the creator of HBO’s Insecure Issa Rae and directed by Selma director Ava DuVernay!
The roots of this odd sounding movie are connected to — as a mix of all odd and amazing things are — on Twitter, after a photo of Rhianna and Lupita Nyong’o at a fashion show went viral on Twitter. User @1800ADGAL said —
Which amazingly got the response of the two stars in question! Both Lupita Nyong’o and Rhianna responded to the Tweet saying they would be interested—
And upon seeing this, writer @MikelleStreet tagged Ava Duvernay to direct and — to compound the insanity — she agreed!
And then Issa Rae was tagged in the conversation to write it and responded with a gif of a kitty typing on up on a laptop — and it was more than just gif goofing. Folks. You won’t believe this. Netflix — just— announced that movie was being made! What!?!? That’s right! The internet just put together a movie, and shockingly it’s not absolutely terrible! It actually sounds— amazing! And even the internet users who helped inspire it will be credited!
