August 16, 2018

Local media in Havana, Cuba report that Rihanna and Donald Glover are filming a movie together in the city. According to Vistar they are both cast members of Guava Island, the new movie from Atlanta director Hiro Murai. Murai also directed Childish Gambino's "This Is America" video.


The reports remain unconfirmed, though pictures of Rihanna and Glover on the set of *something* emerged earlier this week. Vistar's report suggests the cast of Guava Island also includes Black Panther star Letitia Wright plus British actor Nonso Anozie.

Filming locations in the Cuban capital reportedly include a textile factory of the Alamar municipality and the Abreu Fontán Social Circle in Miramar.

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Childish Gambino will perform at Rihanna's annual Diamond Ball in New York. Insecure creator Issa Rae will host this year's event.


The FADER has reached out to reps for Rihanna, Hiro Murai, and Childish Gambino for comment.
