Social media has given birth to a lot of things. Sometimes they create truly hateful ideas such as the half jeans trend spotted at Coachella, but more often than not, the communication hub comes up with an idea so genius, that it might just break the internet.

Last week, an avid fan posted an old picture of Rihanna and Oscar-winning actress, Lupita Nyong’o sitting side-by-side at a 2014 Miu Miu Fashion Show, and it immediately prompted Twitter users to invent a plotline for a potential Hollywood heist movie featuring the gals.

Channeling supervillain vibes, the photo shows RiRi in a cool, pimped-out multi-coloured coat, black shades and stylish bangs as Lupita keeps it classy and chic with thick frames, bejeweled collar, dangling earrings and modest top.

Looks like Twitter user @1800SADGAL could be on to something here.

Just as fans started to realise that it’s probably silly to give the concept any more thought or hope, Lupita Nyong’o spotted the tweet and loved it so much that she roped in Riri! The 12 Years Of Slave starlet tweeted, “I’m down if you are.”

Unsurprisingly, it didn’t take long for Rihanna to pop on the thread. The 29-year-old Bajan beauty expressed her enthusiasm to get on board for the film by responding, “I’m in Pit’z,” coining a cheeky nickname for Lupita in the process.

And thanks to @dvrrxll’s brilliant idea that Rihanna endorsed with an RT, the internet has amazingly Twitter-recruited Insecure’s writer, Issa Rae and A Wrinkle In Time director, Ava DuVernay to head the project.

Both replied with their consent, in which Rae reveals she’s totally on board with the project. “Oh I’m definitely going to shoot my shot. This is an amazing opportunity and all credit to Black Twitter.”

Codeblack Films, from Lionsgate, wanted in on the project as well and tweeted their deep interest in the totally made-up film, “Are you guys serious, if so, a deal can be done this week!”

Right on, Twitter folks!
