Luc Besson was proud to announce that Rihanna will be starring along with Cara Delevingne in his sci-fi movie Valerian.
Rihanna certainly has a preference when it comes to acting. Having already participated in some heavy guns action in the alien invasion movie ‘Battleship’ alongside Taylor Kitsch, she didn’t take on any more acting credits. Many would say that she did not find the right movie.

Luc Besson’s new sci-fi project certainly seems to have caught her attention. The singer/designer was announced to have been signed as one of the main characters in the movie. That means she will be showcasing her talent on the big screen as a main character for the first time.
What might have made Rihanna sign up for this movie? Perhaps the fact that one of her best friends is the other lead. Cara Delevingne is a very close friend of Rihanna’s. Their Instagram accounts have the photographic proof of how close the singer and the model are.
So Cara might have convinced Rihanna to star in the movie. Cara also has a few movies to her credit. Lately, she has starred in Paper Towns and her latest project to come will be Suicide Squad. Cara has always expressed that she wants to be an actress and looks up to Meryl Streep as her inspiration.
Luc Besson announced Rihanna joining the project on his Instagram. His post featured a picture of Rihanna. Accompanying the picture was the caption, ‘RIHANNA is in VALERIAN!!!!!....and she has a big part!!I'm Sooo excited!!!’ followed by a smiley.
