Rihanna is returning to the big screen — co-starring alongside her BFF, supermodel Cara Delevingne!

The dynamic duo are set to star in the upcoming science fiction film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets with leading men Dane DeHaan and Clive Owen. “RIHANNA is in VALERIAN!!!!! …and she has a big part!! I’m Sooo excited!!!” director Luc Besson announced on Instagram.

Valerian, adapted from the graphic novel of the same name, follows time-traveling agent Valerian (DeHaan) and his partner Laureline (Delevingne) as they venture off to investigate a galactic empire in the 28th century.

Rihanna made her film debut in the 2012 action-thriller Battleship and went on to lend her voice in the animated film Home. Not to mention, she’s working hard on her long-awaited eighth album, ANTI. Check out the dope cover art RiRi revealed just weeks ago.
