The Rihanna/Lupita Movie is Actually Happening

Everyone remain calm, we’ve got some exciting news.

You probably saw the memes swirling around back in April when Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o attended the Miu Miu Fashion show.

In case you forgot, at the event the two ladies were photographed sitting together, looking fierce as always.

From this picture, the Internet dreamt up a movie plot that the two stars would act in.

After that, Rihanna and Lupita, along with director Ava DuVernay all chimed in, expressing interest in the project.

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.
