Rihanna To Try On Acting In ‘Battleship’

    It seems obligatory now that once a pop star reaches a certain level of notoriety someone’s bound to cast them in a movie, and now the time has come for Rihanna to catch the acting bug. Peter Berg’s Battleship is slated to begin filming late next month, and Rihanna has apparently hopped aboard. The singer joins Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood‘s Eric Northman) and Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights). By the way, yes, this is a movie based on a board game. It’s not clear how big Rihann’s role is yet, but maybe if this works out for Ri Ri she’ll star in a whole series of Milton Bradley inspired films. Connect Four anyone? [Miss Info]
