Imagine one of the most famous female stars in the world making a movie. Now multiply that by two, and you get a sensational project that is sure to have their combined fan base losing their minds. Well, this is now a real-life math equation as Beyoncé and Zendaya are rumored to be in talks to collaborate on a movie! Little has been officially confirmed at this point, but we are more than excited to share with you the rumors...
It is believed these famous women are discussing staring together in a re-make of the movie Imitation of Life. Based on the 1933 Fannie Hurst book of the same title, the film was first released in 1934 and then remade in 1959 with stars such as Lana Turner, Juanita Moore, John Gavin, and Sandra Dee. Therefore, it seems this classic movie that tackles real-life issues such as gender, race, and class is due for a 21st-century upgrade! And who better to take on the task than these two?
Zendaya rose to fame with the record-breaking Spiderman Franchise, in which she played Michelle Jones-Watson (MJ) alongside Tom Holland as Spiderman. Additionally, she currently takes on the controversial role of Rue Bennett in the critically acclaimed HBO series Euphoria. Beyoncé needs no introduction. From her Grammy-winning singing career to her blockbuster acting credits, there's a reason she's been crowned 'Queen B' by her fans. This movie has the potential to portray both these stars in a new light and boost their careers in the Oscars-winning direction!!
If this movie comes to fruition, this would not be the first time this duo has collaborated. Back in 2016, Zendaya actually appeared in Beyonce's All Night music video. Even better, she makes no secret of the fact that she is a Beyoncé stan like the majority of us! When looking back on the experience, she gushed, "I'm just obsessed with Beyoncé and have been since my birth. Just to be there and really learn from her and see how amazing she is, how detail-oriented, it was cool to just sit back and watch." We feel the same, Zendaya!! Watch this space for more updates!
