Lupita Nyong'o, Brad Pitt to reunite in 'Americanah'
‘Americanah' is an adaptation of Nigerian author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's acclaimed novel of the same name.
"Nyong’o will star and produce, while Brad Pitt’s Plan B - the company that was behind the Oscar-winning slave drama - will make the film," Contactmusic.com reported.
A statement released by Nyong'o, as quoted by the website, reads: "It is such an honor to have the opportunity to bring Ms. Adichie's brilliant book to the screen. Page after page, I was struck by (lead characters) Ifemelu and Obinze's stories, whose experiences as African immigrants are so specific and also so imminently relatable. It is a thrilling challenge to tell a truly international story so full of love, humor and heart."
