The plot basically wrote itself from there:
Cut to this weekend at the Cannes film festival, and Netflix decided to take this idea very seriously and got all the parties together for an intense negotiation. The streaming giant clearly threw enough money at the idea and managed to get not only Rih and Lupita on board, but Ava DuVernay to direct, as well as Issa Rae to pen the script. According to sources, Netflix landed the project in a very aggressive bid, beating out multiple other suitors.
The plot, as written by Twitter, is basically this: Rihanna plays a hot con artist who scams rich white dudes, and Lupita is her brilliant partner who plans the heists. Kind of Thelma and Louise meets Dirty Rotten Scoundrels. Twitter even wrote an ending to the story:
Now it’s just a matter of negotiating who gets story credit.
