Rihanna just had her big screen acting debut in the action packed film Battleship, and now she’s reportedly joining the cast of a new DreamWorks Animation film entitled Happy Smekday! The film is also set to star Jim Parsons of The Big Bang Theory.
The movie is about an alien race that tries to escape their enemy by fleeing to Earth where they take refuge. Unfortunately, one of the aliens (Parsons) leaks their location and finds himself fleeing the enemy pursuit with the assistance of an alien teenaged girl (Rihanna).
The two set out on an American road trip adventure where they learn about the human race.
The movie, based on the award-winning Adam Rex novel The True Meaning Of Smekday, is slated for a 2014 release. The film is being directed by Antz and Over The Hedge director Tim Johnson.
Rihanna has received a number of movie offers since her acting debut in Battleship, many of which she’s turned down. Most recently her reps have denied rumors that Rhi Rhi would star in The Fast and The Furious 6.
