Yara Shahidi Wants in on the Rihanna & Lupita Nyong'o Movie

Something iconic is happening: Twitter pitched a movie with Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o (based on an incredible photo of the two at Paris Fashion Week), and both women have agreed to the proposal… and now actress Yara Shahidi wants in!

Let’s back up a minute. The photo that inspired it all is this one of Rihanna and Lupita sitting side by side, Rihanna looking posh as ever and Lupita looking prim and put-together in the classiest way. The picture began going viral, but what really got the Internet going was the tweet that came after, which was a movie proposal.

Here is the shot:

Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and Lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scams,” Twitter user @1800SADGAL tweeted, to nearly 100,000 retweets.

What happened next between these power celebrities is amazing…

The proposal made the rounds until finally Lupita saw it:

Who sent it to Rihanna:

Who is super down:

You got all that? Okay, this is where Yara comes in.

“Can I please be the protégée that is only a cameo in the first movie, but who’s character comes to fruition in the sequel?” she tweeted, tagging Lupita.

Can this please be real?!?!?!??!

We all need this movie.
