According to new reports, the “Pour It Up” songstress is in talks to play the iconic singer/actress Josephine Baker in an upcoming biopic.
Producer Lance W. Reynolds says in a statement, “Rihanna is one of the most talented performers of this millennium and with her unique acting and performing abilities, I have no doubt she will bring Josephine back to life on the big screen.”
This could be big news for the Bajan bad gal, who did her thing in Battleship last year, but lost a small role in Fast and Furious 6 to Rita Ora due to her touring schedule.
This would be the first major role for Rihanna, who has heretofore shined in smaller parts. Do you think Rihanna could pull off Josephine Baker?
