Rihanna joins ‘Battleship’ board game movie

“Umbrella” singer Rihanna plans to make her Hollywood debut in “Battleship,” Variety reports. The movie concept puts a sci-fi spin on the classic board game, pitting naval officers and their ships against alien invaders. Taylor Kitsch and “True Blood” star Alexander Skarsgard already were attached to star. It is slated to be directed by an otherwise-respected director, Peter Berg of Friday Night Lights.

It does not seem a very auspicious project in which to make a film debut, but that’s perhaps because I cringe at the thought of another silly film based on a board game. Remember Clue?

In any case, she seems to already possess a large number of alien-fighting outfits, so that will save on costumes.
