Rihanna‘s acting debut, Battleship, hasn’t even premiered yet and she is already lining up a string of new acting gigs. After it was revealed last week that the pop singer will have a small role in Seth Rogen‘s directorial debut The End Of The World, it is now being reported by The Huffington Post that the pop singer has been cast in Fast And Furious 6.
Though no specific details have been revealed yet, the character has been described as a villain with “plenty of bite.” Joining Rihanna to dish out some female ass kicking will be MMA fighter and Haywire star Gina Carano.
Though we do know that director Justin Lin will return as well as cast regulars Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Jordana Brewster and Dwayne Johnson, it is still unclear if any of the wider Fast And Furious family will be showing up again. That being said, it is expected that Michelle Rodriguez, Eva Mendes and Tyrese Gibson will be returning.
Fast And Furious 6, which is currently in pre-production, will begin principal photography this Summer and will be released on May 24th, 2013.
