Rihanna is set to dip her feet into yet another movie. The singer has been chosen to star alongside Cara Delevingne and Clive Owen in Luc Besson's new movie, Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

The French film director shared the news himself on his Instagram page early yesterday.

Though he didn't reveal much about her role, he did tease that "she has a big part."

Variety reports that the film is based on the graphic novel Empire of a Thousand Planets by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres which takes place during the 28th century. 

Cara and Rihanna are set to start filming in France in January, with the movie said to be released July 2017. 

Ms Delevingne debuted her character for new movie Suicide Squad yesterday, and certainly shocked fans with the less than model-like look.

The actress has now starred in numerous films including Paper Towns, Pan and The Face of an Angel. Will she ever grace the catwalk again? Only time will tell.
