Lupita Nyong’o to play Trevor Noah’s mom in new movie

Written by on February 22, 2018

South African comedian Trevor Noah has confirmed that his memoir, Born a Crime, will be adapted into a film and that Lupita Nyong’o will star in the movie as his mother.

“My mom is a powerful woman who could easily be one of the beautiful soldiers in Wakanda. So it’s beyond a perfect fit that she would be portrayed on the big screen by the radiant and regal Lupita Nyong’ o,” Noah said on his Instagram account.

“I’m beyond excited,” he added.

Posting the same picture as Noah did, Nyong’o said that Noah’s book was a page turner.

Nyong’o is equally excited for the film.
