Drop whatever it is you're doing and brace yourself for this AH-MAZING news: Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o are reportedly going to be starring in a movie together!

According to Shadow & Act, the Grammy-winning pop star and the Oscar-winning actress will actually get to share the silver screen, after a tweet mentioning an idea for a movie starring the two went viral in April.

As if the news of this wasn't cool enough, Insecure star, writer, and creator Issa Rae is in talks to write the script, and Oscar-nominated director Ava DuVernay is set to direct!

Although it is way too early for a set premiere date, according to Entertainment Weekly, the project will be dropping on Netflix sometime in the near future, especially since production is supposed to start next year!

Long story short: our prayers have been answered. We can't wait for Rih and Lupita to slay it, together!
