Issa Rae is writing a film for Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o because of Twitter

Tweets, like dreams, really do come true…

Trying to make it in Hollywood? make sure you’re on Twitter.

A seemingly low-key tweet from @1800SADGAL caught the attention of Lupita Nyong’o, and before you knew it, Rihanna signed on, Ava Duvernay committed to directing, and Issa Rae started frantically typing away at a script. The film is set to premiere in 2018.

As for @1800SADGAL? She’s getting a credit and will be included the project.
