I’ll be honest, up until about fifteen minutes ago I had no clue that Rihanna was trying her hand at acting much less that she had been cast in Peter Berg’s (Hancock) ultra-necessary adaptation of Hasbro’s Battleship. I guess I must have slept right through that one. Regardless of my own ignorance, though, the film is currently in production and some images of Rihanna in full Naval dress have landed online. Starring alongside Rihanna in the film are Taylor Kitsch (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood). In spite of the fact that Universal almost sank the adaptation as recent as this June, it is currently scheduled to hit theaters on May 18, 2012.
Regardless of how interested you are in her acting career, Rihanna is easy on the eyes. To check out the images for yourself, hit the jump.
