Following the footsteps of other singers in getting a role in a movie, the R 'n' B newest diva is said to be landing herself role in an upcoming drama movie 'Mama Black Widow'.
Nowadays, Hollywood seems to have a new trend in the entertainment industry since many of successful actors are trying their luck in the music industry and vice versa. With reports from the music biz buzzing around Scarlett Johansson's attempt in debuting her recording, the R 'n' B princess, Rihanna is going to expand her fans base by adding moviegoers to the already expanding numbers of her fanatics.
Having massive success with her hit songs "Umbrella" and "Don't Stop the Music" under her sleeves, the Barbados-born singer reportedly is turning her attention to land a movie role. The singer who is romantically linked to Chris Brown is now said to be going to play in a drama movie entitled "Mama Black Widow" co-starring Kerry Washington, Mos Def and Macy Gray. The speculation of her starring in the movie perhaps holds some truth in it, after all she has expressed interest in acting saying, "I don't know how good I'll be at it, but it's something that I want to try."
Though the character to be played by Rihanna has yet unveiled, the movie has geared up on its pre-production mode. Set in the 1930's, the movie directed by Darren Grant will be centering its story on the migration of a black family from the segregated southern Mississippi to the Chicago's degrading black community. The story resolves around Otis Tilson as he fights to keep his family together in spite of alcoholism, pimping, sexual deviation and racial degradation circulating around them.
