Twitter Created a Must-See Issa Rae Scripted Action Film Starring Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o

This movie needs to happen!

Update (04/24): On Sunday, Rihanna finally joined in on the Twitter-created action flick by responding to Lupita Nyong’o’s invitation.

Our two stars are ready to go, and Twitter waisted no time hitting up at Ava DuVernay to direct the viral project.

Her response:

Now all we need is a confirmation and a fire script from Issa Rae then we’re set.

Original Post:

Twitter has hit peak Twitter on Friday (April 21), when users created a faux movie synopsis starring Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o. After an old photo surfaced of the two sitting together at a fashion show, one fan came up with a brilliant idea.

Fans, of course, started freaking out with memes, gifs, and even tacked on Issa Rae and Ava DuVernay to write and direct the film. Will this be our first Twitter-created studio film? Rihanna, Issa, and Ava haven’t responded yet, but if this film did come to fruition, would you purchase a movie ticket to the action-comedy film?

Twitter also created a few potential lines from the movie.
