After testing the waters with her role in 2012's film "Battleship," Rihanna will be making her return to the big screen as part of the sci-fi flick "Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets."

The director of the movie, Luc Besson, shared the news via Instagram today. "RIHANNA is in VALERIAN!!!!! ....and she has a big part!! I'm Sooo excited!!!," he wrote. She reportedly joins a cast consisting of Cara Delevingne, Dane DeHaan and Clive Owen. The movie begins shooting in France come January, while it's slated to hit theatres July 21, 2017.

Meanwhile, we've finally learned the title of Rihanna's eighth studio album, ANTI, and we've seen the cover art, but we're still waiting on a release date.
