Trevor Noah is taking over Hollywood!
The Mzansi star’s autobiography Born A Crime will be adapted into a film, and none other than Academy award-winning Lupita Nyong’o will star as his mother.
Lupita will also co-produce the yet-to-be titled movie with The Daily Show host.
We are so looking forward to the movie.
Read the pair’s announcement below:
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
