Lupita Nyong’o In Zombie Comedy ‘Little Monsters’

Lupita Nyong’o and Josh Gad will star in Little Monsters, a zombie comedy from writer-director Abe Forsythe. Forsythe’s Down Under star Alexander England also will topline the pic, which is in production in Sydney. The movie is being produced by Keith and Jess Calder’s Snoot Entertainment and Bruna Papandrea’s Made Up Stories. It has received major production investment from Screen Australia in association with Create NSW.

The film follows Dave (England), a washed-up musician who volunteers to chaperone his nephew’s kindergarten class field trip after taking a shine to the plucky teacher, Miss Caroline (Nyong’o). Dave’s intentions are complicated by the presence of Teddy McGiggle (Gad) the world’s most famous kids show personality — and competition for Miss Caroline’s affections. One thing none of them bargained for, however, is a sudden zombie outbreak, from which Dave and Miss Caroline must protect the children.

The Calders are producing alongside Made Up Stories’ Papandrea, Jodi Matterson and Steve Hutensky, with Jeanne Snow executive producing. Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales.

Oscar winner Nyong’o is repped by CAA and Del Shaw; Gad is with WME, Lighthouse Management & Media and Ziffren Brittenham. The Australia-born Forsythe is repped by CAA and Plattform, and fellow Aussie England is with UTA and United Management.

New project by twitter users with Rihanna ?

After a dramatic negotiation session at the Cannes Film Festival, Netflix has nabbed a film project pairing Grammy winner Rihanna with Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o, in a concept that began as a Twitter sensation. Ava DuVernay (Selma) will direct, and Issa Rae (Insecure) is writing the screenplay. According to sources, Netflix landed the project in a very aggressive bid, beating out multiple other suitors. Netflix had no comment.

The project began as an online meme when the photo below — a shot that was taken in 2014 of the two women in the front row of a Miu Miu fashion show — went viral, prompting calls to turn it into a movie.

Twitter users went so far as to ask for DuVernay (who is in post-production on A Wrinkle in Time for Disney) to direct, with Rae (whose second season of HBO’s Insecure will debut on July 23) to write. Soon after, all four women pledged their support to the project on the social media platform.

Since then, the buzz has only intensified, with some creating concept art of the “scammer story” they envisioned with Rihanna playing a woman who cons white men, while her brilliant co-conspirator (played by Nyong’o) orchestrates the heists. It’s unclear how faithful Rae will remain to the crowd-sourced concept. (Since this piece was published, reps for Rae told Vanity Fair “the original Twitter users who imagined the concept for this film will be credited and included in some form.”) Sources say Rae is already working on the script and the studio is eyeing a production start of 2018 after DuVernay completes her current film.
