Lupita Nyong’o And David Oyelowo Feature In New Movie

By on January 7, 2015

David Oyelowo is re-teaming with Brad Pitt’s production company Plan B on a film version of Americanah, the best-selling 2013 novel by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

“I’m about to do Americanah with (Pitt, now quite the BFF) as well with Lupita Nyong’o,” said David Oyelowo, who brought his wife Jessica and two of their four children to the event (including his son Caleb, who got a big happy birthday shout-out from dad on stage).

David Oyelowo said:
“We have to find a director and a writer and all that good stuff. We’ll be playing a couple in that. It’s an epic story that follows these two Nigerians who fall in love in high school, and she goes off to America and he goes off to the U.K. They basically are suddenly immigrants in these countries. He goes back and becomes affluent again in Nigeria and it’s their journey back to each other.”
