Rihanna, Lupita Nyong'o Agree To a Twitter-Inspired Movie Starring Them

Never underestimate the power of social media.

Recently, a dope picture from 2014 of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o sitting together at a fashion show resurfaced on Twitter and it sparked a tweet saying "Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams". 

We all know that Rihanna is known for her saucy and dripped out fashion along with using charm to get what she wants (i.e. her single "Needed Me".) Lupita is giving the look of being super sheisty yet you won't suspect that of her hence the sweet girl look she's giving.

That tweet then started a domino effect of ideas suggested by people on Twitter that ended with a twitter-inspired movie called Cashing In starring Rihanna and Lupita, written by Issa Rae and directed by Ava DuVernay. Seems like Rihanna and Lupita, Issa Rae and Ava support this based on their online responses!

All I can say is that I hope this can at least be a mini film since everybody is on board with the idea. Guess we'll have to wait and see what happens in the future!
