It’s been exactly 6 months since the casts of Black Panther returned from the fictional village of Wakanda. As expected many of the cast are either taking a break from acting, or taking on low budget scripts to keep in shape, till a bigger script comes along. And Lupita Nyong’o falls under the latter.
The A-list actress who is in talks to star in “Charlie’s Angels” reboot. and rumored to co-star with your favorite Bajan, Rihanna, in an underground heist movie written by Issa Rae (Insecure) and directed by Ava DuVernay (Selma) has recently landed a role in “Little Monsters” and nope I don’t mean Lady Gaga’s fans.
Starring alongside Josh Gadd (Beauty and The Beast), and Alexander England (Alien Covenant). Lupita plays the role of Ms Caroline, a school teacher. And Alexander plays Dave, a vanquished musician who goes on his nephew’s school trip, and falls in love with Ms Caroline. But his intentions are entangled by the presence of Ted McGiggle (Gadd). A world famous kids show personality, who also has a crush on Ms Caroline. this sounds like a seemingly harmless romantic comedy. But then everything escalated with a sudden Zombie outbreak, and they have to come together to protect the kids.
The movie is written and directed, by Australian Director Abe Forsythe, who is famous for his thought provoking movie “Down Under”. in partnership with Snoot Entertainment and Made Up stories. it’s been confirmed, production for Little Monsters is well underway this month, in Sydney, and Screen Australia is said to be backing the project.
Looks like 2018 is going to be a good year for fans of Lupita with Black Panther hitting the screens come February and now Little Monsters in what promises to offer relief and possibly love in the midst of chaos and terror. For the actress who was once named Most Beautiful Woman on Earth by People’s Magazine, it’s only fitting that she plays the part.
