Rihanna is in France
Rihanna left Los Angeles and is now in Paris, France. She is filming “Valerian”, a sci-fi film by Luc Besson. Check out the first photo from the set.
We first learned that Rihanna is going to star in Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets in October 2015. Her role isn’t specified, but Besson, the filmmaker behind “Lucy” and “The Professional,” teased that the part was a big one.
The film adapts Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres’ graphic novel and unfolds in the 28th century when humanity discovered time travel. The big-budget project has tapped three elite visual effects firms to help realize Besson’s vision of the future — Weta Digital, Industrial Light & Magic and Rodeo FX.
