There’s just no stopping actress Lupita Nyong’o! As if her ongoing success with Black Panther isn’t enough, she’s just announced that she’ll be starring in and producing the film adaptation of Trevor Noah’s book – Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood.

Lupita will play Trevor’s mom, Patricia, in the The Daily Show host’s bestselling debut autobiography that was released in 2016.

She shared the exciting news on Instagram, saying: ‘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

As much as this is an incredible opportunity for Lupita, we can’t help but feel proud AF of Trevor RN!

The fact that his life will be documented in film is a big deal! And to have an Academy Award winner play a lead and produce it is incredible!

According to Sowetan Live, we can expect a second book from the South African comedian and television host in November this year, as well.

Congratulations, Trevor and Lupita!
