Even director Ava DuVernay has joined in on the fun

Unless you've been living under a rock, you've likely read or at least heard about a ridiculously entertaining story sweeping across Twitter by Aziah King, also known as Zola (or @_zolarmoon).


The lengthy tale of strippers, sex, murder, money, lies and more was captured in a series of 150 tweets and well worth the read (see here). It's the stuff of a big budget feature film or at least a television mini series, which is exactly why King has Hollywood knocking at her door.


She tells TMZ her story has caught the eyes of execs at MTV, VICE, WME and a few independent film makers. King's tweets have since been deleted and she says she's in contact with her lawyer to patent the story.


As for casting, she's holding out for Meagan Good or Keke Palmer to play her in a project. She's already gotten the support of Palmer who tweeted Wednesday: "So I guess I’m starring in this new movie called #Zola #letsgo #wheresthescript #yallknowiloveworking."


King has also gotten the attention of Selma director Ava DuVernay, who got caught in the whirlwind just like us.


"In India reading #Zola. Drama, humor, action, suspense, character development. She can write!" DuVernay wrote on Twitter. "There's so much untapped talent in the hood. I see you, sis! I need a book. What's good? Best seller in waiting."


It's safe to assume this isn't the last we'll be hearing of #Zola.
