The 21-year-old pop star whose boyfriend Chris Brown has been charged with felony assault and making criminal threats following his alleged assault on her has reportedly been looking at various scripts in New York, including a remake of the hit ’90s film which starred Whitney Houston and Kevin Costner.
A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: “Before the situation with Chris, Rihanna was getting a lot of scripts. She has been wanting to do movies for a while now.”
If the film goes ahead, Rihanna’s character will be a ‘young and sexy take’ on the popstar previously played by Whitney.
The Barbados-born beauty will star alongside GI Joe actor Channing Tatum who will play her on-screen love interest.
Rihanna is also believed to be considering working on a Charlie’s Angels sequel and a film project with Justin Timberlake.
The Umbrella singer is currently easing herself back into work following Chris’ arrest.
Meanwhile, Rihanna has been spotted enjoying herself with friends following the alleged attack.
Last Friday night Rihanna joined mentor Jay-Z and his wife Beyoncé Knowles for dinner at New York restaurant Spotted Pig.
