Los Angeles: Singer Rihanna is reportedly keen on bagging a role in the remake of 1983 film `Scarface`.

The 24-year-old wants to play the role of Elvira Hancock, essayed by actress Michelle Pfeiffer in the original movie.

"Rihanna loves `Scarface`. Some of her music videos have been based on Michelle`s character, Elvira," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

"She knows all the words and even has her walk perfected," the source added.

The singer made her acting debut with actor Liam Neeson in `Battleship` earlier this year. She will soon be seen in Evan Goldberg`s `End Of The World` and is making a debut in voice over with `Happy Smekday!`
