All Africa reports that Chimamanda Adichie and Lupita Nyong'o might bring Americanah to the screen.

Nigerian award-winning Nigerian author, Chimamanda Adichie, has hinted at a future "collaboration" with Oscar winning Kenyan actress, Lupita Nyong'o. Adichie gave the tip during an interview on entertainment web-series, Arise Entertainment 360 published on YouTube Thursday.

According to Adichie, the collaboration will have to do with her 2013 novel, Americanah. "I'm going to do the mysterious thing and say that Lupita might be making an announcement sometime soon – I don't know. That announcement might be about Americanah – I don't know," she said coyly.

Adichie disclosed that Nyong'o was a very early fan of Americanah. "Before she was sort of well-known like she is now (… ) she wrote me the loveliest email; very long and passionate email about Americanah."
