How Did This Picture Spark A Movie Deal With @rihanna, @Lupita_Nyongo, @ava and @IssaRae?

We all know the power of #BlackTwitter, well it strikes again this time creating a movie deal we are all here for. This picture of Rihanna and Lupita looking fly at the 2014 Miu Miu fashion show is all it took.

After a dramatic negotiation session at the Cannes Film Festival, Netflix has nabbed a film project pairing Grammy winner Rihanna with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, in a concept that began as a Twitter sensation. Ava DuVernay (Selma) will direct, and Issa Rae (Insecure) is writing the screenplay.

According to sources, Netflix landed the project in a very aggressive bid, beating out multiple other suitors.

The film will go into production in 2018 after DuVernay finishes her latest project.
