Lupita Nyong'o Starring In Memoir Adaptation Born A Crime

Lupita Nyong'o: Kenyan born actress to star in Trevor Noah's memoir adaptation 'Born a Crime'

Lupita Nyong'o is the next star to announce a subsequent film project.

The book titled "Born a Crime", written by the Daily Show host himself, will be adapted into a movie where Nyong'o will play Noah's mother.

Nyong'o is now riding the wave of positive reviews and box office glory of Marvel's Black Panther. His parents' relationship was illegal under the country's apartheid laws at the time and his 2016 book chronicled his hard upbringing.

The title of the book stems from being born a mixed kid in a time where whites and blacks were not allowed to mix let alone date or mate!

Lupita will portray Trevor's mother Patricia Nombuyiselo Noah who gave birth to her son when interracial relationships were still a crime in South Africa.

In response he added, "My mom is a powerful woman who could easily be one of the handsome soldiers in Wakanda".

Noah is on board to produce the project. This is alongside Norman Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt and Sanaza Yamin of Mainstay Entertainment, and Lupita.

Lupita Nyong'o is now lighting up the big screen in the blockbuster Black Panther. Born a Crime, released in 2016, spent 26 weeks on the bestseller list.
