Universal Pictures announced on Monday that “Rude Boy” singer Rihanna is set to make her feature film debut in Battleship, a film adaptation of the popular Hasbro board game from Hancock director Peter Berg

Very little is known about the plot of the sci-fi action film other than that it details the battle between an international naval fleet and a group of threatening alien invaders called The Regents.  Friday Night Lights star Taylor Kitsch will play the naval officer who leads the fleet in the fight against the invaders, while True Blood hottie Alexander Skarsgård plays his brother, another naval officer whom Kitsch’s character idolizes. 

It has not yet been confirmed what role Rihanna will play (we’re gunning for the alien side), but the singing sensation will begin shooting her scenes for the film in Hawaii throughout August.

Look for Battleship in theatres May 2012, and keep checking our headlines for more updates!
