What an amazing world we live in now where a Tweet could launch an idea for a movie. The comment on a photo of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o at a Paris fashion show in 2014 got this comment on Twitter: Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans.
Lupita responded with this Tweet: I'm down if you are @rihanna https://twitter.com/
Rihanna then responded: I'm in Pit'z https://twitter.com/lupita_nyongo/
Well the movie is now taking place. Netflix has bought the film project that will pair Rihanna with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o in a buddy movie concept. The project began as a Twitter meme after a photo was taken of both women at a Miu Miu fashion show in 2014. Ava DuVernay is slated to direct, and Insecure's Issa Rae is in line to write the screenplay.
