Rihanna may have another heist film coming down the pipeline after “Ocean’s 8.” Possibly co-starring Lupita Nyong’o with Issa Rae writing and Ava DuVernay directing, the high-profile project was spawned from a tweet.
Twitter user @1800SADGAL sparked the idea when she retweeted an old photo of Rihanna and Lupita sitting next to each other at a fashion show. The duo was styling hard, and the original tweet cast them as the honeypot and the hacker in a two-woman con artist team.
Lupita got on board last week and Rihanna agreed to the project on Sunday. They’ve also got Issa Rae, the writer and star of HBO’s “Insecure,” and Oscar nominee Ava DuVernay to direct. Fans are on board with “Robyn Hood” and want the movie to get made.
