Pop star Rihanna seems keen on fleshing out her fledgling acting career and that the ‘Talk That Talk’ singer has signed a second film. Rihanna made her Hollywood debut earlier in the month with ‘Battleship’ and the word is now that she has bagged a negative role in the latest instalment of ‘The Fast and The Furious’ franchise. The singer will be driving super-cars alongside the likes of Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, aka The Rock, as the series continues its world tour of exotic locations. Last time it was Tokyo, this time it’s England. “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,” a source said. “It’s a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles,” the source added. The movie will be set in London and shooting is expected to start as early as next month. Rihanna will also be heading to Essex for the first time as the racing scenes will be shot in Southend when London is out of bounds to filmmakers during the Olympics. Rihanna played the role of Cora Raikes in ‘Battleship’. “I wanted to do something badass but I didn’t imagine it would be grungy, like straight Navy soldier, no make-up,” she said, “I enjoyed it. We did training just before the shoot and two hours later we were shooting that scene.” The Barbados-born singer had earlier spoken of her desire to go into comedy following sci-fi action flick ‘Battleship’ and hoped to work with actor-producer Seth Rogan. She said: “I’ve always wanted to work with Seth. 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.” Meanwhile, the star will unveil the highly anticipated music video for her new single ‘Where Have You Been’.
