According to City Press, the actress and fashionista will be shooting parts of a new Disney movie, called Queen of Katwe, in Johannesburg.

The paper reported that the award-winning actress’ visit is “shrouded in secrecy”, because local producers have signed a confidentiality agreement.

A source told the paper that the Kenyan actress will be in Johannesburg in “early May”. Lupita is currently filming for the movie in Uganda.

The source told the paper that some local actors would also get the opportunity to work with Lupita.

According to the paper, eTV's Ashes to Ashes actress Maggie Benedict could be part of the cast. When called for comment, Maggie told City Press: “I’m not interested to comment. Have a great day.”
