After delivering a stellar performance on Marvel’s ‘BlackPanther,’ expect to see another interesting role played by Oscar winner Lupita Nyong’o.
Lupita will star in ‘Born a Crime’ , a film which will be adapted from Trevor Noah’s autobiography Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood.
When I read @TrevorNoah’s “Born A Crime,” I could not put the book down. Excited to announce that I will be starring in and producing its feature film adaptation! #BornACrime
Trevor Noah will be the producer of the film together with Norman Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt and Sanaz Yamin. Lupita will take on the role of Trevor’s mother, Patricia, Deadline reveals.
Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood shares Trevor’s life story from being born by parents of a different race in a time when interracial relationships were illegal in South Africa.
In Trevor words; Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood is the compelling, inspiring, and comically sublime story of a young man’s coming-of-age, set during the twilight of apartheid and the tumultuous days of freedom that followed—from one of the comedy world’s brightest new voices.
