The singer will record for, and star in, 3D children's film "Home".
It appears that Rihanna has been casted as a voice actor in the upcoming animated film "Home". To coincide with that, RiRi will also release a concept album based on the film as well, according to Variety.
Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation, announced this news a couple days ago on Tuesday during the company's quarterly earnings call. He also revealed that Rihanna will perform new songs for it, but did not provide any titles or release date for the album.
The upcoming movie revolves around a group of aliens that escape their enemies by hiding out on Earth. Originally entitled "Happy Smekday!", the 3D film is based on author Adam Rex's 2007 children's book "The True Meaning of Smekday".
Rihanna will play the film’s teen protagonist, Gratuity "Tip" Tucci, and star alongside Jim Parsons, Jennifer Lopez and Steve Martin.
The film is currently set for a November 26th release date via 20th Century Fox. I have a feeling this will do much better than "Battleship".
