Los Angeles, July 24 (IANS) Actress Lupita Nyong’o is proud to star in a movie with singer Rihanna which is based on a tweet from a fan.

The “Black Panther” actress is teaming up with the “We found love” singer for an upcoming heist movie, the idea for which came after a fan shared a photograph of them sitting together at a fashion show in 2014 and suggested a potential plot.

Nyong’o is very proud to be part of a project which will be directed by Ava DuVernay and written by Issa Rae, reports etonline.com.

“You know what’s really cool, is that people spoke up about the kind of movie they wanna see and this is a great example,” she said.

“Like, ‘Black Panther’ is being embraced because people are really hungry for this kind of film, and that movie with me and Rihanna and Issa and Ava is another one of those examples where people want to see something like themselves, and something different something they’re not being offered yet, and I’m honoured to be a part of that conversation,” Nyong’o added.
