  • Black Panther actor Lupita Nyong’o

Oscar-winning actress Lupita Nyong'o will produce and star in a film adaptation of Trevor Noah's memoir Born a Crime. The book details Patricia's influence on her son's life and her deeply held religious beliefs.

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

Noah took to Instagram to say: "My mother is a powerful woman who could easily be one of the handsome soldiers in Wakanda".

Nyong'o won an Academy Award for "12 Years a Slave" and played Nakia in "Black Panther".

Noah is producing the movie through his Ark Angel Productions along with Norman Aladjem, Derek Van Pelt, Mainstay Entertainment and Nyong'o herself, as reported by Deadline.

European Union migration falls to lowest level since 2012
Net immigration has risen to 244,000 a year in a reminder of the scale of the task facing the government to curb numbers. The Office for National Statistics said it was too early to say if the bombshell Brexit vote was sparking a "Brexodus".

The threat of the time was especially real for Noah, whose South African mother and white father risked prison and even death by being seen together - or with young Noah.

Noah also posted on Twitter his excitement about the movie and that fact the Lupita would be in the project. Nyong'o will play Noah's mother Patricia, and will co-produce the film with Noah.

Born a Crime was released in 2016 and became a best-seller.

Trevor could not keep the excitement to himself either as he revealed shortly after with additional news, revealing she will take the leading role of his mother in the book. We bring you the fun bits from the red carpet.
