After rocking the country with her Last Girl on Earth Tour, chart-topper Rihanna is ready to rock the silver screen with her first starring role in a feature film.

[lastfm]Rihanna[/lastfm] snagged a starring role in an upcoming action movie titled Battleship, though her role has not yet been confirmed. The film is a science fiction naval war film based on the Hasbro game of the same name.

This will be the “Rude Boy” singer’s first starring role and she’s joined by a cast that includes Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights) and Alexander Skarsgard (who plays sexy Eric on HBO’s True Blood). The two Hollywood actors will play brothers who lead the fight for their planet’s survival against an otherworldly force. The film will be told from both points of view – humans and aliens. (I did always want to know what aliens are really thinking.) Peter Berg is set to direct the film with an expected release date of May 25th, 2012.

In addition to getting ready for her Hollywood debut, Rihanna is working on the follow-up to her latest hit album, Rated R, and traveling on the road for her Last Girl On Earth Tour with wild child [lastfm]Ke$ha[/lastfm]. She’s also been busy planning pop singer [lastfm]Katy Perry[/lastfm]’s bachelorette party. Rihanna told Access Hollywood of planning the bash: “It’s taking up way more time than my tour. It’s so much pressure. Her wedding [to British comedian Russell Brand] is probably going to be the best wedding I’ve ever been to and now I have to match the bachelorette party to that.”

Awww..what a good friend!
