You know, I’ve never really thought about a Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o collaboration before, but now that it’s on the radar, it feels like it’s something that needs to happen. Like, immediately. And with how things are going, it looks like it might be a possibility.
It all started with this fabulous photo of the two, which is serious #goals in about every way possible.
Like, we’re seriously getting some cinematic vibes from it.
But why compare them to a film that already exists when the photo is basically a movie idea of its own?
But when Twitter user @1800SADGAL brought up the perfect plotline for the pair, she probably didn’t expect for the stars to jump on board — but that’s exactly what they did.
Nyong’o found the tweet first and brought it up to Rihanna, who definitely wasn’t against it.
But it didn’t just stop there — it didn’t take much time until the idea had a potential producer, aka Academy Award nominee Helen Estabrook.
They may have even found a writer too, who you might know as Issa Rae, the creator, co-writer and star of HBO’s Insecure.
And director Ava Duvernay definitely wanted in one some of the action.
Rihanna was definitely feeling it, that’s for sure.
And, as you could expect, Twitter was freaking out.
I’m not saying the movie is going to happen, I’m just saying that in a just world, it would.
