Battleship: Rihanna's Acting Debut!

Battleship: Rihanna's Acting Debut!

Rihanna has signed up to play the female lead in the upcoming action-adventure Battleship, in theaters May 2012.

The 22-year-old Barbadian singer will star alongside on-screen brothers Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood).

The flick, which will be helmed by actor/director Peter Berg, is based on the adaptation of Hasbro’s naval combat board game.

Alex will play a straight and narrow naval officer while Taylor will be the wildly spirited naval officer who idolizes his brother. Battleship is to begin shooting on Aug. 30 in Hawaii.

Soooooooooo exciting!!!

    I’m sorry, but what? I mean I was on board with Taylor and Alex, they actually seem to make sense. But Rihanna? Um, no thanks. It’s bad enough Tom Arnold is there and that this is based off of a board game, but Rihanna, who, I’m sorry, you can tell is not going to be some great actress, just makes this seem cheap and uninteresting.
