  Forget Kim K, it was this badass picture of Rihanna and Lupita Nyong'o that broke the internet. It went viral on Twitter and Tumblr, starting a tweetstorm about making a heist movie featuring the aforementioned dream team.  They quickly tweeted back their support of the idea! With the endorsement of the two stars, it went from joke to full-fledged concept with people asking for Ava Duvernay to direct and Issa Rae to write the script.
