The musician-actors were spotted in Havana
According to Cuban magazine Vistar, the actor-musicians are reportedly shooting an upcoming film titled Guava Island. Although further details are yet to be confirmed, the cast allegedly includes Black Panthers’ Letitia Wright and British actor Nonso Anozie.
As reported by the local publication, the movie is directed by Hiro Murai, the Japanese-American filmmaker who was the brains behind Glover’s surreal series Atlanta and his brilliant This Is America music video.
“The film’s locations are less frequented areas of the capital,” reports Vistar, “among them, the textile factory in the Alamar district and the Abreu Fontán Social Circle in Miramar.”
This is one major claim, but fans are also theorising that they’re filming a music video together. Earlier in the week, Rihanna announced the line-up for her Diamond Ball charity show, where Glover will perform.

Guava Island, should it materialise, would be Rihanna’s fourth appearance on the big screen in a prominent film role – following Ocean’s Eight, Valerian and Battleship. Of course, that leaves out her killer clapback from 2006’s Bring It On: All Or Nothing and fleeting cameo in stoner movie This is the End. The Barbadian singer is reportedly working on new music, as she suggested on Instagram earlier this year.
