As we all know, Twitter comes up with some really hateful ideas, and then sometimes, it comes up with an idea so genius, that we just want to make it into a reality.
That’s what happened last week, when a 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.
Both replied with their consent, and Rae even teasingly told Vanity Fair she’s totally onboard with the project. “Oh I’m definitely going to shoot my shot,” she states. “This is an amazing opportunity and all credit to Black Twitter.”
Codeblack Films, from Lionsgate, wanted in on the project as well and tweeted their deep interest in the totally made-up film.
With the characters already in play, Social Media worked to fill in the writer and director role for this dream film — suggesting Insecure mastermind Issa Rae and Selma director Ava DuVernay respectively.
Who wouldn’t want to see this dream movie happen in reality? I hope it does soon.
