After negotiations at the Cannes Film Festival, Netflix has nabbed a film project which will star Grammy winner Rihanna and #Oscar winner #LupitaNyongo.
The film is expected to be directed by Selma director AvaDuVernay, and IssaRae is also said to be in talks for the screenplay.
Rae is already working on the script and the studio is eyeing a production start of 2018 after DuVernay completes her current film.
This development was clearly motivated by a social media campaign”Scammers Story” that the duo should co-star in a movie after a photo of the duo was posted on Twitter.
Someone captioned the photo: “Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams”
