Okay so wait.... This is really happening!!!
Yes it's happening, word is a company named TriStar Pictures managed to get the rights to The Woman King, a film apparently based on true events.
However that is not the big news! As of now the film will star Oscar winners Viola Davis and Lupita Nyong’o!
The film is said to be centered around
"true events that took place in The Kingdom of Dahomey, one of the most powerful West African states in the 18th and 19th centuries, The Woman King tells the story of Nanisca (Davis), general of the all-female military unit known as the Amazons, and her daughter Nawi (Nyong’o), who together fought the French and neighboring tribes who violated their honor, enslaved their people, and threatened to destroy everything they’ve lived for." - goodnews.com
