Leave it to the Internet to turn #FlashbackFriday into a potential movie pitch session.
A three-year-old photo has been making its rounds on social media of Lupita Nyong’o and Rihanna sitting pretty in the front row of a Paris fashion week. Twitter pitched an entire action-comedy story-line based on the gorgeous pic. See below:
Even Lupita herself is down to play the brilliant best friend to Rihanna’s scamming diva character. Check out Twitter’s reaction to an imaginary Rihanna and Lupita film.
