Lupita Nyong’o took to Instagram on March 29 to confirm that she is in Uganda to start filming the Disney film Queen of Katwe. The feature is based on Ugandan chess prodigy Phiona Mutesi, and will also star Nigerian actor David Oyelowo (Selma).
The Kenyan Oscar winner is photographed with celebrated Maisha Film Lab founder, and Oscar nominated film director Mira Nair (Salaam Bombay!) who will direct Queen of Katwe.
From 6000 pearls to just 1: Uganda. Excited to be back in East Africa to work with @MiraPagliNairon #QueenOfKatwe.
