David Oyelowo to Star With Lupita Nyong’o in ‘Americanah’

Having already secured a Golden Globe nomination for his work in “Selma,” David Oyelowo is looking to set up his future slate. Sources tell Variety that Oyelowo is set to co-star with Lupita Nyong’o in the indie drama “Americanah.” Based on the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie novel, the story follows a pair of young Nigerian immigrants who face a lifetime of struggle while their relationship endures.

Brad Pitt is producing through his Plan B production banner along with Nyong’o and Andrea Calderwood. Plan B produced “Selma,” and after having such a good experience working with them, Oyelowo jumped at the opportunity to board another project they were producing.
