Report claiming that Rihanna was in New York City over the weekend to have some meetings about feature projects, including "The Bodyguard" remake, has been claimed to be a false one. Quick to throw cold water to the circulating speculation was the songstress' representative, who told MTV News Monday, March 16, the singer is not fielding any movie offers.

The denial came out in the wake of New York Daily News earlier claim, suggesting that the R 'n' B star has been spotted in New York City over the weekend to have some meetings about impending feature projects. The trade went on further stating that one of the projects include a proposed remake to 1992's "The Bodyguard" in which she will star opposite Channing Tatum for the role once made famous by Whitney Houston.

In addition to the remake project, Rihanna was also rumored to eye possible roles in a forthcoming "Charlie's Angels" sequel and an unspecified film with Justin Timberlake. "Before the situation with Chris [Brown], Ri was getting a lot of scripts. She's been wanting to do movies for a while now," New York Daily News quoted its source as saying.

Rihanna has been keeping a low profile since she was reported to be involved in a fight with boyfriend Chris Brown in February, which left her with a swollen-bloody lip, two black eyes and marks on her forehead. Soon after she reconciled with Brown, she was rumored to have recorded duet track with him. However, the story was quick to be denied.
