Rihanna Prepares for 'Battle' in Film Debut

  /  07.27.2010


Now that she’s topped the Billboard charts with seven No. 1 singles, Rihanna has set her eye on conquering the box office charts with her feature film debut.

The singer will star in Universal’s Battleship alongside Taylor Kitsch (“Friday Night Lights”) and Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”), reports Variety. The live-action movie, directed by Hancock‘s Peter Berg, is based on Hasbro’s naval combat board game.

Universal has set a May 25, 2012, release date for Battleship, which takes place in the sea, in the sky, and on land in a battle to save the planet against a superior force. Kitsch stars as a naval officer who leads the fight, while Skarsgard will play his brother. Shooting is set to begin soon in Hawaii.

Rihanna previously played herself in the 2006 teen flick Bring It On: All or Nothing. Her “SNL” skit with funnyman Andy Samberg is nominated for Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics at the 62nd Annual Emmy Awards.
