In a recent interview, Adichie mentions a possible collaboration with Lupita N’yongo on something having to do with Americanah.
I’m connecting the dots here and hoping that the Kenyan Oscar-winner is going to star in a film adaptation of Americanah, Adichie’s most recent novel. But, as Adichie says, we’ll just have to wait for an announcement that Lupita is supposed to make very soon.
The interview is lovely, but if you’re impatient fast-forward to the 6-minute point. Watch!
