Rihanna to Star in Universal’s Battleship


Rihanna is set to make her feature film debut in Universal’s Battleship, the Hasbro adaptation to be directed by Peter Berg.

The recording artist, songwriter and model will be joining Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard in the film, scheduled to hit theaters on May 18, 2012.

Battleship will unfold as a massive Naval adventure across the seas, in the skies and over land as our planet fights for survival against a superior force. Kitsch stars as a Naval officer who leads the fight and Skarsgard will play his brother in the film.

Jon Hoeber and Erich Hoeber wrote the screenplay, which was revised by Brian Koppelman and David Levein.
