Rihanna and Lupita, Fashion Week F/W 2017

Starting off this story with a funny anecdote, a girlfriend and creative colleague of mine sent me this photo as inspo for a screenplay we’re writing that she is set to star in. Her words where “Rihanna is me and Lupita is my best-friend… (fix)”; little did either of us know that in the coming days, this epic and beautiful photo would spark a magical movie concept via twitter that could indeed be real and star Rihanna and Oscar award winning actress Lupita N’yongo! Here’s the breakdown…

It all started with this photo and this live basically perfect “memed’ tweet”…

Then not soon after that tweet went viral Lupita signed on and called on RiRi to make it official (we all waited anxiously)… Than Issa Rae tweeted what we all were thinking… Behold! Rihanna tweeted Lupita back on Sunday making it official and in our minds…the script was being developed as we watched this entire tweeting message Then the internets went wild and the fans took the helm in pushing this magical, tweet film development along… The bad gal cleverly tweets back… Then the final tweet that truly sealed this soon to be Hollywood deal, diectHER Ava DuVernay is summoned and it’s on! Wherever this magical tweeter film pitch goes, it’s hopeful that something could truly get started in development. With this bunch of badass women wearing all the hats needed to create such a dope movie concept, there’s nowhere else to go from here but to the writers room. This film sounds like a definitely must, plus we have some very early fan sketched visuals that, Lupita posted could help this crew envision the movie now. Lupita N’yongo’s title idea of Cashing In, certifies that this would blow-up the box office and yes, cash in.
