London: `We Found Love` hitmaker Rihanna has reportedly landed herself a villainous role in the next "Fast and Furious" movie to be directed by Justin Lin.
The 24-year-old, who made her Hollywood debut in the sci-fi thriller ‘Battleship’, is said to star in the sixth installment of the hit action franchise, reported Contactmusic.
Rihanna will play the role of a femme fatale alongside the regular cast - Paul Walker, Vin Diesel and Dwayne `The Rock` Johnson.
"Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in Battleship. Writers think she`ll be perfect for the role. Her character has plenty of bite and doesn`t take any prisoners - just like her in real life. It`s a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles," a source said.
The film will be shot in London.
