Singer Rihanna is set to make her feature film debut in the board game turned naval action thriller “Battleship” for Universal Pictures says Variety.
The story follows a massive Naval adventure across the seas, in the skies and over land as the armed forces of our planet fight for survival against an alien water-bound armada.
Taylor Kitsch (“Wolverine”) will play a “wildly spirited” Naval commander named Alex Hopper who is much more a sailor than a politician. Alexander Skarsgard (“True Blood”) plays Alex’s brother, a straight and narrow naval officer whom Alex idolises.
Jon and Erich Hoeber penned the script while Peter Berg (“Hancock,” “The Kingdom”) is directing. Filming kicks off August 30th in Hawaii.
