Rihanna will take a trip on ‘Battleship’
HollywoodNews.com: Universal’s “Battleship” film based on the Hasbro board game just got sexy: Rihanna has joined the cast.
The pop singer will star alongside Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”) and Taylor Kitsch.
Peter Berg (“Friday Night Lights”) is attached as director.
Variety scored the story. The trade did not report exactly what role Rihanna will be playing, though “Battleship” will mark her feature film debut.
“Battleship” will set sail in theaters on May 25, 2012.
The film follows the planet’s battle with a superior force. Kitsch who stars on Berg’s NBC version of “Friday Night Lights” plays the naval officer at the forefront of the fight with Skarsgard playing the part of his brother.
Since coming on the music scene in 2005, Rihanna has charted seven No. 1 singles.
