Last February, during a swing through South Korea, Rihanna told MTV Asia that she had dreams of becoming a Hollywood superstar.
“I would love to get into comedic movies,” the 22-year-old said. “As well as action. I love action. I would love to play a badass one day.”
Well, a badass she very well might be, as she’s signed onto “Battleship,” a sci-fi action flick based on the classic board game and co-starring Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgård. Of course, this isn’t the first time a celebrated singer has ditched the recording studio for the soundstage. As Rihanna boards “Battleship,” she joins a long line of artists-turned-actresses like Beyoncé, Madonna, and Britney Spears.
