Rihanna may be joining the cast of Fast 6 as a villain? This would be fantastic if she could play some sort of mute savant when it came to guns play and racing cars…and uh, wearing S&M gear and dancing a lot.
An abundance of booty shorts, bikinis and slow motion dancing haven’t exactly made the first five Fast and Furious movies girl-power milestones. However, Justin Lin‘s Fast and Furious 6/Fast Six looks like it might change that. The post-credits scene in Fast Five hints at the return of not one, but two of the franchise’s more empowering female characters. (Spoilers held for after the jump.) Additionally, Gina Carano is currently in talks for the film, and now one site clams hip-hop singer Rihanna might join the film in a villainous role. Read more after the jump.
The Daily Mail (via Collider) had this to say about Rihanna’s possible casting:
An inside source told the Sun, ‘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.’ The source continued, ‘It’s a step up the ladder for her and could lead to bigger action roles.’
…Her acting in Battleship impressed? Either standards were low or the people around her plummeted even further than she did in terms of performance. Anyways, back to what I was saying. Sexy mute racing and punching savant.
