Twitter Is Trying Really Hard to Get That Rihanna & Lupita Nyong’o Movie Made, & It Might Actually Be Working

Remember that photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o at the Miu Miu fashion show in Paris back in 2014? If you didn’t, you do now. It just resurfaced last week, and since then, the pic has gone viral because as one Twitter user suggested, “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans.”

Obviously the internet was on board because it’s such a great idea. Well, you better get ready: According to Bustle, this movie actually might happen.

It looks like fans are piecing the project together on Twitter, and it’s turning out to be a lot easier than expected!

Someone tweeted at Issa Rae, creator and star of HBO’s Insecure, to see if she’d write the script. And she was totally for it, tweeting back a cat GIF to show her excitement.

Okay, so we have a screenwriter. How about a director? Another fan had that covered, tweeting at Academy Award-winner Ava DuVernay. She was completely in too!

Other actresses, like Yara Shahidi, have even expressed their interest. As for our leading ladies? Both Rihanna and Lupita are all for it.

So what is Hollywood waiting for?! I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for this.
