Rihanna takes on aliens in Battleship soon, and seems to be the newest addition to the Fast and Furious franchise. She will play a "sultry villain" according to a source for The Daily Mail.
Here is what the source close to the project had to say:
Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in Battleship. Writers think she’ll be perfect for the role. Her character has plenty of bite and doesn’t take any prisoners — just like her in real life.
Fast and Furious 6 begins production next month, and is slated for release on May 2013. Rihanna will be shooting scenes at a racetrack in the U.K. I wonder if she will be featured in the seventh film, which has been rumored. I am not a huge fan of her yet, so I am hoping Battleship turns that around.
