Lupita May Just Be In Another Sci Fi Flick

Kenya's Oscar Award winner Lupita Nyong’o is in negotiations to star in Intelligent Life, a sci-fi thriller from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment that has Ava DuVernay circling to direct.

Intelligent Life is a reworking of an earlier Trevorrow-Connolly project titled The Ambassador about a U.N. worker in a department that was created to represent humankind in the event of alien contact.

The man falls in love with a mysterious woman who turns out to be an alien. The tone is said to be similar to Trevorrow’s Safety Not Guaranteed and takes The Ambassador to a larger scale story.

Lupita will play the woman at the center of the alien contact.
