Rihanna pretty much plays a femme fatale 24/7, so it’s only natural that the producers of the upcoming sixth installment of the “Fast and Furious” movie franchise would enlist the R&B star to portray their villain. According to the U.K.’s Sun newspaper, the Bajan badass has signed on for a lead role in the flick, adding a second credit to her filmography.

“Rihanna impressed with her acting debut in ‘Battleship,'” a source told the newspaper. “Writers think she’ll be perfect for the role. Her character has plenty of bite and doesn’t take any prisoners — just like her in real life.”

RiRi will share the screen with series mainstays Paul Walker and Vin Diesel, and according to the source, the part “could lead to bigger action roles.”

Could “Man Down: The Movie” be around the corner?
