What would the world be without #BlackTwitter!? The community took a picture of #Rihanna and #LupitaNyongo--slaying, of course--and made up an entire film about the duo!

Fans got hype whenever Lupita said she would be down if Rihanna was. The next thing you know, the idea to get #AvaDuVernay to direct and #IssaRae to write the script unarguably won the vote for the fictional project's production assistance. Fans have been patiently waiting for the film gawds to make a miracle out of a tweet!

Speaking of Rihanna...so excited to hear this news today! Issa a real movie!🎬❤️
——————————————————————
The movie Twitter dreamt up about Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o playing a pair of genius scammers is actually coming to life.

Entertainment Weekly reported today that Netflix has secured a deal for the concept at the Cannes Film Festival after a “dramatic negotiation session.” Rihanna and Nyong’o will star, Ava DuVernay will reportedly direct, and Issa Rae will write the script. Rae’s team confirmed to Vanity Fair that the project is in the works, adding that the original Twitter users who imagined the concept for this film will be credited and included in some form! That's wonderful!

Remember this photo that inspired an internet dream movie featuring @badgalriri and @lupitanyongo? Well it's becoming a reality! 😱🙌🙏🏻 @directher is set to direct the project and @issarae is in talks to write the screenplay. 🌟 Click the link in our bio for more details. #Rihanna #LupitaNyongo #AvaDuvernay #IssaRae 📷: Pascal Le Segretain/Getty Images

Along with a slew of new photos, #VanityFair has also released the touching new images of the late #CarrieFisher with her daughter #BillieLourd and co-star #MarkHamill. It's going to be emotional seeing #Leia and #LukeSkywalker together for the last time. #RIPCarrieFisher. #EpisodeVIII stars #DaisyRidley, Hamill, #AdamDriver, #JohnBoyega, Fisher, #OscarIsaac, #DomhnallGleeson, #GwendolineChristie, #LupitaNyongo, #KellyMarrieTran, #LauraDern and #BenicioDelToro from #RianJohnson arriving December.

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. Netflix had no comment.
.
The project began as an online meme when the photo below — a shot that was taken in 2014 of the two women in the front row of a Miu Miu fashion show — went viral, prompting calls to turn it into a movie.
.
Twitter users went so far as to ask for DuVernay (who is in post-production on A Wrinkle in Time for Disney) to direct, with Rae (whose second season of HBO’s Insecure will debut on July 23) to write.
.
"We deserve nice things," Ava wrote on Twitter yesterday.

Several brand-new images and a behind-the-scenes featurette from “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” have been released; courtesy of Vanity Fair! Several plot and character details for the film were also revealed, including the names of Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran’s characters. Dern will play Vice Admiral Amilyn Holdo, “a prominent officer in the Resistance”, and while it was revealed that Kelly Marie Tran’s character was named Rose at Star Wars Celebration, we’ve now learned that the full character name is Rose Tico - with the character’s sister Paige also making an appearance in the film. The name of Benicio del Toro’s character, who’s described as “shady” with “unclear allegiances”, will not be revealed in “The Last Jedi” - although director Rian Johnson says the cast and crew refer to him as DJ. Johnson also discussed some of the film’s new locations, including Canto Bight, “a Star Wars Monte Carlo–type environment, a little James Bond–ish, a little ‘To Catch a Thief’. It was an interesting challenge, portraying luxury and wealth in this universe. I was thinking, O.K., let’s go ultra-glamour. Let’s create a playground, basically, for rich assholes.” Finn and Rose head to Canto Bight for a “mission behind enemy lines”. We also learned a little more about Ahch-to, the planet in which Luke Skywalker now calls home. According to Johnson, the planet is home to the first Jedi temple (as many fans previously speculated) and is also occupied by “an indigenous race of caretaker creatures”. Finally, LucasFilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed that “Star Wars: Episode IX” will begin filming next January! “Star Wars: The Last Jedi“, which stars Daisy Ridley, Mark Hamill, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Adam Driver, Carrie Fisher, Peter Mayhew, Anthony Daniels, Jimmy Vee, Domhnall Gleeson, Andy Serkis, Gwendoline Christie, Lupita Nyong’o, Laura Dern, Kelly Marie Tran and Benicio Del Toro, is written and directed by Rian Johnson and hits theaters on December 15th, 2017. What do you think of this new look at, and new information from, “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”? Let me know in the comments!
