Trevor Noah made an announcement last night that Lupita Nyong’o will be starring as his mother when his book, Born a Crime, is turned into a movie.

In an Instagram post, Noah said that, “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.”

“When I read @Trevornoah’s “Born A Crime,” I could not put the book down,” said Lupita on Twitter.

“Excited to announce that I will be starring in and producing its feature film adaptation! #BornACrime,” she added.
