The Scam Is On: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o’s Meme-Based Film Just Got The Greenlight

The Scam Is On- Netflix Picks Up Rihanna's Buddy Movie With Lupita Nyong'o That Started As A MemeWhen a three-year-old picture of Rihanna sitting next to Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o started making the rounds on Twitter last month, it was just a laugh. A fan had tweeted that the pic looked like a scene from a buddy movie starring the two as scammers who preyed on “rich white men.”

Rihanna and Lupita both got on board with the idea, as did Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay and writer Issa Rae. Now, that dream team has apparently found a production company to get behind it.

Entertainment Weekly reports that the project has been picked up by Netflix after an intense bidding war at the Cannes Film Festival, where Rihanna made a convenient appearance over the weekend.

That report says that Issa is already drafting a script and intends to give credit to the original tweeter. It looks like shooting for the film will start in 2018 after Ava completes her current film.

Check out Ava’s new tweet about the production below.

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.

Rihanna Is Ready To Scam Rich White Men With Lupita Nyong'o original tweet 1800sadgalLupita 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.
