Lupita Nyong’o and Rihanna Are ‘Down’ to Star in the Action Movie of Twitter’s Dreams

social-media user tweeted a picture of Rihanna and Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong’o sitting side-by-side at a 2014 Miu Miu fashion show and commented how the duo looked like a Hollywood action movie waiting to happen.

The photo, taken during Paris Fashion Week three years ago, shows RiRi in a cool, pimped-out multi-colored coat, red lips, black shades and stylish bangs as Lupita keeps it classy and chic with thick frames, bejeweled collar, dangly earrings and modest top. Because of the two contrasting outfits, this particular fan assigned the “Love on the Brain” singer the con artist role while the Black Panther actress plays her intellectual counterpart who devises a crafty plan.

The tweet went viral, causing Lupita to tag Rihanna and suggest, “I’m down if you are.” 

A few days later, on Sunday, the singer replied back saying, “I’m in Pit’z.”

With the characters already set, the Internet worked to fill in the writer and director role for this dream-team film — suggesting Insecure mastermind Issa Rae and Selma director Ava DuVernay respectively. 

Codeblack Films, from Lionsgate, wanted in on the project as well and tweeted their deep interest in the totally made-up film.

With all of this Twitter planning, who knows… maybe we might just get a movie out of it. 

Fingers crossed
