Los Angeles: 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 of 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

"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.
