Rihanna‘s Hollywood career has gone into overdrive. The singer has been cast in her second big screen blockbuster. This time she’ll play a villain alongside Vin Diesel and The Rock in the new Fast And The Furious movie.
An insider has told The Sun newspaper ‘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.’ In other words… RiRi will put her pedal to the metal!
This will be the sixth move in the ‘Fast and Furious’ franchise – yes SIXTH! This time the action will take place in the UK which works well since the Talk That Talk singer is relocating to London to film a TV series. Now she’ll stay longer and complete the movie as well. Filming is due to start next month so she’ll be behind the wheel before she knows it!
RiRi is ecstatic about the role – she’s desperate to carve out a Hollywood career. She’s already been telling friends she’d love to play her idol Whitney Houston on film. Rihanna also wants to try her hand at comedy as well ‘I’ve always wanted to work with Seth Rogen. He is so funny. Even if he’s not in the film, all of his movies are funny. They’re the comedies I watch a thousand times, besides Borat of course, and everything that Sacha Baron Cohen does.’ Fast And the Furious may not win her an Oscar – but it’s a step in the right direction.
