Rihanna’s just began filming Ocean’s Eight, but she is already teasing another movie project called Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.
According to Entertainment Weekly in the upcoming Sci-fi film, she will play a cabaret dancer with several personas working in a space brothel and is expected to have a nice amount of screen time.
The film’s director Luc Besson casted Rihanna for the role last year and spoke highly of her.
“Rihanna was my first wish. First, because of her voice and the way she smiles and looks and how she expresses herself.” Besson said in interview with EW. “Second, because you know she won’t be intimidated on the set. She plays stadiums with 100,000 people. You know that girl isn’t shy about the camera and the crew and all this.”
“She was very direct with me,” Besson continues to tell EW. “She said ‘Luc, I want to learn, I want to work. Just let me do it.’ And I must say that she was a great partner and did everything I asked,” Besson says, adding with a laugh, “And believe me — I asked too much.”
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will be released in theaters on July 21, 2017 BUT In the meantime, check out RiRi’s in the trailer above!
