Rihanna Cast In New Sci-Fi Film 'Valerian'

(Radio.com) Pop diva Rihanna is making her way back to the silver screen. She was cast in a new sci-fi film called Valerian, which is being helmed as the same director of The Fifth Element, Luc Besson.

Rihanna will star alongside Oscar nominated actor Clive Owen, model Cara Delevingne, and Dane DeHaan. The film will be adapted by Besson from a 1960s French graphic novel series.

Luc Besson posted the Rihanna casting news on his Instagram page earlier today (Oct. 28). Luc said he was excited for the Bajan bombshell to have a role in the film and said she had a "big part," although no one is actually certain what that really means.

Valerian is set to begin production at the end of the year and has a tentative date of release scheduled for July 21, 2017. Read more here.
