'Battleship' Star Rihanna Rumored to Play 'Fast and Furious 6' Villain

Rihanna / Fast and Furious

When the dust settled after the chaotic conclusion in Fast Five, the fifth installment in the popular Fast and Furious franchise made over $626 million worldwide and cemented fan interest in seeing the series continue. The addition of Dwayne Johnson as the relentless Agent Hobbs gave an extra burst of energy to the franchise, and now it appears director Justin Lin is looking to add some more to the mix in Fast and Furious 6. Last week, Haywire star Gina Carano entered negotiations to join Johnson's team, and now The Daily Mail reports that Battleship star and pop singer Rihanna is coming on board as a "sultry villain."

We'll take this story with a grain of salt since nothing has been confirmed yet and the source is known for gossip and not exactly 100% reputable, but if it does turn out to be true, the Barbadian songstress will play a villain with "plenty of bite." Somehow I doubt that the 24-year-old Rihanna could do anything to scare Paul Walker, Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson, or even Michelle Rodriguez or Jordana Brewster, but we'll see if she kicks alien ass in Battleship in the middle of May first. The sequel will film in London and Berlin for a summer 2013 release, and we'll keep you posted as the blockbuster film develops. Thoughts?

 The proverb answers where the sermon fails, as a well-charged pistol will do more execution than a whole barrel of gunpowder idly exploded in the air.

NO! I did not think they could have jumped the shark, but they did. Lame F&F, lame.

Dwayne Johnson is the worst cop ever in F&F, did he actually catch anyone?I hope Rihanna dances like a stripper in it, she's really good at that.

Really lazy journalism here... Fast Five made over $626 million worldwide, $209 million domestic. It's as clear as day on Box Office Mojo!

Well that ruined any hope for a good sequel...not all rappers are good actors. Common is the only good Rapper turned actor.

Wow, with one hand they giveth (Gina Carano) and the other they taketh away (Rihanna). I was kinda stoked to see this movie because Gina was in negotiations to be in the next installment. The I read they added Rihanna. Boo! She is nasty and not in a good way.

I hate woman in role of bad guy in such action movies. I Wana Jason statatham in role of villain or someone physically badass(like rock himself) but if Rihanna be sidekick villain I maybe agree with that choise( but if i see her act in battleship first)

I know, boy racers really shouldn't be given any airplay. I could accept maybe 2 films at most, but they keep rolling out like bad Subaru Impreza's.
