It seems like Rihanna is really branching off into the acting field. Besides fans getting a chance to see her in the upcoming Battleship film, which comes out on May 18th, it has been announced that the singer will appear in the upcoming sixth installment of The Fast and The Furious franchise–which is also being called the final film of the series.
Rihanna will play a villain in the film, which will also feature F&F vets Vin Diesel and Paul Walker. The movie will be set in London, and is expected to start filming as early as this month. She will also be heading to Essex for the racing scenes as they will be shot in Southend when London is out of bounds to filmmakers during the Olympics.
Take a look at what a source had to say about the singer joining the cast below:
“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. It’s a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles.”
Rihanna, Vin Diesel, Jordana Brewster, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and Michelle Rodriguez all in the same film together? This is going to be a hell of a lot of eye candy, and this people is what I consider porn!!! I cann’t wait until this movie gets released.
