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!!!

Generally petulant and deed over habitation improvment

Another tragedy in the making. I guess we won’t stop reading your post unless we have destroyed everything.

honestly the only reason im seeing that movie is because of rihanna and i pray to god that she can act. As much as i love her i have to say im getn sick of putting singers in movies(mariah carey, jessica simpson) they just ruin the movie. The only singers that can really act are Jlo, Beyonce, Jennifer Hudson, and Jill Scott. And also stop giving actors a singer career like Paris Hilton who shouldnt sing or act and Linsey Lohan.
