Rihanna In 'Fast And Furious 6' As A Villain? (REPORT)

Rihanna Fast And Furious
Rihanna has reportedly been cast in 'Fast & Furious 6.'

"Battleship" hasn't even debuted in the U.S. yet, but that's not stopping Rihanna from continuing her big screen takeover. According to U.K. paper The Sun, the "We Found Love" singer has been cast as a villain in the sixth installment of "The Fast and the Furious" franchise.

The pop music hitmaker will make her film debut in "Battleship" -- out May 18 -- but The Sun reports that Rihanna will play a dangerous femme fatale alongside regulars Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, and will film her part in London.

A source tells the newspaper that Rihanna's "Fast 6" character "has plenty of bite."

"Fast and Furious 6" is expected to begin production in May, with shooting to take place in the U.K. The Sun doesn't specify whether Rihanna is currently in talks or if her involvement in the sequel is already locked down, so we're going to file this under rumor until RiRi confirms the news.

If she does find herself back in the U.K., perhaps she'll reunite with her "We Found Love" music video co-star, British boxer/model Dudley O'Shaughnessy, for her next video. The pop superstar recently released the video for her latest single "Where Have You Been."
