Rita Ora to Star in "The Fast and Furious 6"

Originally, the role was set for Rihanna.


Fans of The Fast and The Furious series are already anticipating the upcoming sixth installment. So far, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, and Michelle Rodriguez are slated to appear. Now, Rita Ora has reportedly landed a role as the villain.

Originally, Rihanna was set to take the role. A source said: “Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in Battleship. But schedules didn’t work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude.”

There’s no word on when an official trailer will be released, but we can expect Ora to put on a solid performance. The film has already begun shooting back in July in Surrey. It is scheduled for release on May 24, 2013.
