It doesn't get any better than this...
Lupita Nyong'o will play the role of Trevor Noah's mother when his novel, Born A Crime, is made into a Hollywood flick.
South African comedian Trevor Noah and host of The Daily Show has taken Hollywood by storm and we are not surprised! His best selling memoir chronicles his journey growing up as a mixed-race child in Soweto during Apartheid in South Africa. Both Noah and Nyong'o made the announcement on Instagram.
My mom is a powerful woman who could easily be one of the beautiful soldiers in Wakanda. So it's beyond a perfect fit that she would be portrayed on the big screen by the radiant and regal Lupita Nyong' o. I'm beyond excited. ??? #Repost @lupitanyongo: When I read @TrevorNoah's "Born A Crime," I could not put the book down. Excited to announce that I will be starring in and producing its feature film adaptation! #BornACrime
The movie is yet to be titled but we are almost certain it's going to be a box office hit.
