Rihanna could star in Leonardo DiCaprio’s next film as the pair think it would 'make sense'
Rihanna is said to be in talks for a role in rumoured fling Leonardo DiCaprio’s next movie – and it’s Leo who has opened the door for her
Well, this is definitely one of the perks of rubbing shoulders with a Hollywood star.
Rihanna is said to be in talks for a role in rumoured fling Leonardo DiCaprio’s next movie – and it’s Leo who has opened the door for her.
Leo, 40, will play schizophrenic criminal Billy Milligan in dark film The Crowded Room and singer Rihanna, 27, is being lined up to play one of his victims.
A source said: “Leo has been working intensely on this project and chatting about it with Rihanna and they both think it would make sense for her to be in the movie.
“They want to spend as much time together as possible and this would be a huge bonding experience as she’s already been helping with his research into the character.”
The couple are rumoured to be dating (although Leo’s PR has denied it) and they have been spotted together looking cosy numerous times in the past few weeks.
But, perhaps it’s all just professional as Leo helps Ri expand her acting roles from Battleship – where she played Petty Officer Cora Raikes in 2012 – and a small part in Annie last year, to bigger characters.
In fact, she looked like she was trying out for the part of Catwoman as she stepped out in Paris on Saturday night in a black mask.
On The Crowded Room role, the source added: “Leo suggested she play one of the victims, but there are a number of parts she could take.
“Rihanna has seen her friend Cara Delevingne start to get larger and more credible film roles and that’s something she wants to emulate too.”
And it doesn’t just stop at acting – she’s also playing around with the idea of writing for the movie’s soundtrack too.
The source said: “Leo wants her on board to get the right sound for the movie – he thinks this would be a great addition to a role in the film.
“She’s already written a concept album for the movie Home, which she appears in and is due out later this year, so she’s had the experience to make Leo’s film a big hit too.”
