The power of Twitter was demonstrated when a random photo of Rihanna sitting next to Lupita Nyong’o became an Internet meme that caught fire on social media, with a joking tweet that the two should co-star in a buddy movie now becoming reality as an upcoming Netflix movie starring the “12 Years a Slave” star and the “Work” singer.
Is the same phenomenon now happening with a tweet requesting a gay rom-com starring Jeff Goldblum and Stanley Tucci?
It’s a possibility, judging by the volume of attention that’s being heaped upon a tweet calling for the pair (who have never appeared onscreen together) to play married restaurateurs in a romantic comedy.
The whole thing started with this simple tweet from Tyler Bradley:

But then… a huge twist!

So did the Twitterverse like the idea? Let’s find out…
Then again, there are some who feel the concept is too rich for a single movie — it should be a TV series!
While neither Tucci nor Goldblum have yet to comment, here’s hoping their respective agents have already set a lunch date.
