On the heels of her incredible performance in Black Panther, Lupita Nyong’o has announced she will be starring in Trevor Noah‘s forthcoming biopic, Born A Crime.

The film is an adaptation of the “Daily Show” host and comedian’s bestselling autobiography, “Born a Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood.”

Lupita will portray Trevor’s mother, Patricia.

Page Six reports:

The book was published by Spiegel & Grau in 2016 and has won the James Thurber Prize for American Humor and two NAACP Image Awards. Noah focuses on growing up in post-apartheid South Africa as the son of a white father and black mother who had trouble fitting in.

The book also provides details about his mother, Patricia, who grew up in a hut with 14 occupants and took her son to three churches every Sunday, a prayer meeting on Tuesday, Bible study on Wednesday, and youth church on Thursday.

In a post on her Instagram page, Lupita wrote:

When I read @TrevorNoah’s “Born A Crime,” I could not put the book down. Excited to announce that I will be starring in and producing its feature film adaptation! #BornACrime
