Popstar Rihanna, who we learned yesterday now has her own wax statue tribute on display at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum in Washington DC, has made her way to Hawaii this week. No, she’s not there to hang out with living legend Britney Spears and her beau Jason Trawick who are also on the islands … Ri Ri is actually in HI to film her first scenes for the new film Battleship (which is based on the classic board game Battleship by Milton Bradley). Here is our first look at Rihanna on set:
You may recall that we learned in July that Rihanna would be making her feature film debut in Battleship and now we know that she’s already begun work on the film. To be honest, I’m having a hard time trying to wrap my head around the notion of a major motion picture based on a classic board game … but, then again, I never thought that Pirates of the Caribbean, a movie based solely on a ride at Disneyland, would be successful. I’m certain the classic catchphrase, You sunk my Battleship!, will be uttered in the film … let’s just hope it won’t be uttered at Rihanna for ruining the movie ;)
What do y’all think … does a movie based on a board game sound like a winner to you? Do you think this is a good first movie for Rihanna to make her acting debut?
