Lupita Nyong’o will be doing double duty as producer and actress for her next movie, Americanah. For her debut producer title, she got Selma star David Oyelowo to co-star in the film with her.

According to Variety, the Indie film is based on Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel Americanah. Oyelowo and Nyong’o will play two young Nigerians that emigrate to the USA and face a “lifetime of struggle while their relationship endures.”

Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B will back the actress up as the production company for the film. They are still looking for a director and writer for the project.
