Looks like Rihanna‘s Battleship adventure was the beginning of what could really turn into an awesome acting career. After telling MTV News she was a little “weirded out” when she heard her American accent on screen but otherwise loved what became of Battleship, she’s now ready to take on the roll of a villain!
The 24 year old pop star turned actress is teaming up with Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for the 6th film in the Fast And The Furious franchise. According to The U.K. Sun, A source said, “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 has also expressed interest in playing the roll of Whitney Houston in a biopic about the late singer’s life, even claiming she would give her “entire life” to play that roll. It seems as though Rihanna has quite the acting career in motion. Check out the trailer forBattleship below.
