Rihanna as villain in Fast 6? Em, that’s fine with us…

May 2nd, 2012 by Marc Comments

Latest rumour on the Fast & Furious grapevine is that Rihanna is set to appear as the villain in the sixth installment.

While the movies are not shy of hot ladies in scanty outfits, Justin Lin moved the goal in the fifth movie and it looks like he plans to keep it up for the sixth.
But now The Daily Mail is saying that Rihanna is set to appear as the main antagonist:  ‘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.’

We’ll take it with a pinch of salt, but we liked the last movie and maintain our optimism about this one…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
