Guess Which Celebs Are Set To Star…


It’s a crowd-sourced story concept born on social media—and it all began with a photo of music superstar Rihanna sitting front row at the 2014 Miu Miu show next to Academy Award winning actress Lupita Nyong’o. Honing in on the image of Rihanna and Lupita, fans on Twitter crafted a meme calling out how the pair look like they could be co-stars in a film about a mastermind scammer (Rihanna) and her genius computer hacking accomplice (Lupita). Fans even suggested a director and writer for the fantasy project: acclaimed director Ava DuVernay and Insecure writer/star Issa Rae. So, of course, the whole thing went viral.

Now here’s what happened IRL…Rihanna and Lupita Tweeted they were both down for the project and soon Duvernay and Rae also pledged their support. And, after intense negotiations at the Cannes Film Festival, Entertainment Weekly reports that Netflix is on board with the project. Word is Rae is working on the script with a possible production start in 2018 once director DuVernay finishes her current film project.
