Rihanna lands 'The Fast and The Furious' role

The singer will star in the sixth installment of car-chasing film franchise

Rihanna has impressed Hollywood with her portrayal of Raikes in action film Battleship that she's been offered a role in The Fast and Furious.

The Bajan singer will play the villain in the sixth installment of the car-chasing franchise, starring alongside Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson, also known as 'The Rock'.

'Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in Battleship' said a Hollywood insider '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'.

The next Fast and Furious movie is set in London and filming will start next month.
Some of the scenes will be shot in Essex as London will be host to the Olympics this summer, making it impossible to film in the Capital during July and August.
