And now, it looks like this dream will become reality!
Rihanna and Lupita will star in the film, which Netflix bid on at the Cannes Film Festival.
Ava DuVernay (A Wrinkle in Time, 13th, Selma) is set to direct, with Issa Rae (Insecure) slated to write.
It is unclear if the film will follow the Twitter-inspired plot, but we are excited regardless! I mean, talk about a dream team.
