Ava DuVernay and Lupita Nyong’o could be teaming up for a new sci-fi film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

DuVernay is possibly set to  direct Intelligent Life, a “sci-fi thriller” about a UN worker that falls in love with an alien, to be produced by Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment.  Nyong’o is reportedly in talks to play the alien at the center of the movie.

In addition to the sci-fi film, DuVernay is also in talks with  Disney to adapt A Wrinkle in Time, the children’s book classic by Madelein L’Engle. And Nyong’o’s Jungle Book premieres in April!

    Uh I am definitely here for a scifi film with a black actress. Hopefully this is true! I’m usually not into this genre but if these two are involved, I’m interested.

    This sounds like a win!!

  • For long years, our people have fought for social justice. In our time, 2 beautiful, inspirational black woman are showing their gifts in the world. Lupita Nyong’o (whose speech on the truth on beauty was eloquent, real, and purely classic) and Ava Duvernay personify courage, black excellence, and true grace. They have lived their lives with strength and with profound resiliency against adversity. If a sci story was to come, then that would be wonderful. Our people have a great love and appreciation for sci-fi and our diverse stories have the right to be shown and heard.
