Rihanna Going To War In BATTLESHIP
Singer Rihanna is making her first step toward becoming a singer-actor as she has joined the cast of the upcoming film “Battleship.” The board game adaptation is being directed by Peter Berg.
The singer joins a cast that already includes Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard. The two will play brothers and naval officers who are part of a multinational task force that will have to defend Earth against an invading alien force. At this point the role Rihanna will play remains unknown. The singer is one of two new cast members as Tadanobu Asano has also joined the cast. Asano has previously held leading roles in “Ichi the Killer” and the Genghis Khan biopic “Mongol.”
Rihanna’s current collaboration with Eminem, “Love the Way You Lie,” is on top of the music charts. The music video for the song is expected to hit airwaves this week and stars Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan.
