It looks like Rihanna will be a Bond girl. But she probably won't be the Bond Girl.
According to Hollywood Life, Rihanna is in talks to appear in Bond 24, which is scheduled for November of 2015 release. However, she won't be playing a lead-type Ursula Andress or Hale Berry role. Instead, the 26-year old will have a walk on part.
"There have definitely been discussions of her joining the cast to be a Bond Girl,” the source states. "But she will not be the most focused Bond Girl if she gets the part. It will be more of a glorified cameo."
"Something that they have done in the past with people like Madonna," the source continued. "It will be a brief part of the film if she ends up making an appearance."
This all starts to make more sense if Rihanna is also doing the theme song, right? And yes, it appears that's what this is all about: "They are actually looking for her to do the theme and the role would just be an added bonus," the source explains.
As we learned from "This Is The End," Rihanna cameos can be pretty entertaining. James Bond better know how to duck.
