During the 2014 Miu Miu fashion show in Paris, a picture of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong’o surfaced of the two of them sitting in the front row next to each other. Now, that picture is making the rounds again, but this time as the inspiration for a heist movie that we’d all very much like to see made.
“Rihanna looks like she scams rich white men and lupita is the computer smart best friend that helps plan the scans,” said a Twitter user with the handle@1800SADGAL.

And the internet ran with it.
There was fanart depicting the movie, made up lines… Director Xavier Burgin even started scripting the made-up movie. Lupita even joined in on the fun by responding to Rihanna, “I’m down if you are.”

Check out some of the best offerings from social. We so want this movie now.
If an actual movie comes out of this image of Rihanna and Lupita it will be Twitter (and Tumblrs) greatest accomplishment. pic.twitter.com/KMhYeY16r1
