Miu Miu : Front Row - Paris Fashion Week Womenswear Fall/Winter 2014-2015The people of the internet have long been calling for a movie starring Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o, and they're going to get it.

Netflix bought the project, which will be directed by Ava DuVernay and written by Issa Rae, EW reports. Not surprisingly, the streaming service wasn't the only company interested; Netflix had to make a huge bid to land it, according to the publication's sources.

The idea for the project came courtesy of the internet. When the two women were photographed sitting front row at a Mui Mui show during Paris Fashion Week in March 2014, fans started dreaming up possible collaborations, including a heist flick. Soon, others started calling for DuVernay and Rae to be involved as well, and all four women were willing to make fans' dreams come true.


The film is still a ways out, though. Production is not expected to begin until 2018, so we won't get to see the finished film anytime soon. Yet, with those four talented players involved, the wait will be worth it.
