From Twit­ter to the big screen

Vocable (Anglais) - - Échos -

Ri­han­na and Lu­pi­ta Nyong’o are set to star in a bud­dy mo­vie for di­rec­tor Ava DuVer­nay af­ter a tweet of the two went vi­ral. A pic­ture of the sin­ger and the ac­tress to­ge­ther at a fa­shion show in 2014 was used as part of a joke mo­vie pitch on Twit­ter in April. “Ri­han­na looks like she scams rich white men and lu­pi­ta is the com­pu­ter smart best friend that helps plan the scams,” read the tweet. Both stars then ex­pres­sed in­ter­est in the idea on Twit­ter, fol­lo­wed by Sel­ma di­rec­tor DeVer­nay and In­se­cure wri­ter Is­sa Rae.
