This is almost too good to be true.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, there is a strong chance that Lupita Nyong’o and Ava DuVernay will be teaming up for a new sci-fi film.
Though neither A-lister has committed to the film, Intelligent Life, Nyong’o is in negotiations for a leading role, and DuVernay is expected to receive a directing offer by tomorrow morning.
Written by Jurassic World director, Colin Trevorrow, the movie will tell the story of a U.N. extraterrestrial specialist who unknowingly falls in love with an alien. Filming is set to begin later this year.
Be still, our hearts.
