Rihanna joins Alexander Skarsgard and Taylor Kitsch in Battleship
Posted by: Nathan Swank
R&B Pop sensation Rihanna will star in Universal’s BATTLESHIP. The musician will be joining True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard and Friday Night Light’s Taylor Kitsch. The film will cover battles over sea, land and air, unlike the popular, strictly sea-based naval board game from Hasbro that it is based on. I’m assuming they are just taking the name and somewhat likeness of the game. The battle will be against a superior force for the planet’s survival. I don’t ever remember that part of the story line in the game. I’m curious on what the similarities will actually be.
But back to Rihanna who will be staring in her very first feature film. I’m not sure how big her role will be but I always have my doubts with musicians turned actors. Peter Berg will direct BATTLESHIP with a May 25, 2012 release date.
