Cara Delevingne and Rihanna To Star In a New Sci-Fi Movie

It’s no secret that former model Cara Delevingne is now putting all her efforts to break into the cinema industry, which has been actually featuring Delevingne’s contribution since 2012. Although the news that the British actress is working on a new movie project is not considered as ‘breaking’ anymore, the fact that she will do it alongside one of her closest friends might surprise some of you. Cara Delevingne is coming to the big screen again in 2017, this time along with the Barbadian singer Rihanna. The two BFFs are going to star in a new sci-fi movie directed by Luc Besson, the French director, who is best-known for some stylish and hugely budgeted films, inlcuding The Fifth Element, Léon and Lucy.

Cara Delevingne and Rihanna To Star In a New Sci-Fi Movie

Renowned also for his ability to craft a strong female lead in his movies, Besson is a synonym of independent female action super heroines. His next project is set to start at the end of this 2015 and will optimistically be released in July 2017.

While Cara Delevingne already has a specific role, it is not clear yet what kind of character Rihanna will be playing. It is, however, surely going to be an interesting character, given the fact that the movie is based on an adaptation of a bestselling sci-fi graphic novel series, Valérian and Laureline, created by writer Pierre Christin and artist Jean-Claude Mézières in 1967. Like the graphic series, this movie will focus on the spatio-temporal agents’ adventures of Laureline, a red-headed independent and sarcastic woman, in the film portrayed by Cara Delevingne (who will thus have to dye her blonde locks red), and Valérian, a dark-haired brave man which in Bresson’s movie is going to be portrayed by the American actor Dane DeHaan.

In a perfect sci-fi style, Valérian is portrayed in the future, in this case in the 28th century, and features a virtual utopist Earth as well as the possibility to instantaneously travel in time and space. We sure have to expect Besson’s famous special effects and cool costumes (just think about Milla Jovovich’s role and costumes in the sci-fi world he created in The Fifth Element).

However, before time-travelling with her BFF, Delevingne is expected to be seen on the big screen a few times more this upcoming year, as she has three movies set for release in 2016: the highly anticipated Suicide Squad, Kids in Love and Tulip Fever.

Rihanna also can look back at two great achievements in the film industry; this will be the third role for the Barbadian singer, who has already voiced a character for the animated film Home and in 2012’s Battleship.

Director Luc Besson, who has shared his excitement about this movie on Instagram, published a post revealing the official Valérian cast, stating that: “Rihanna is in Valerian!!!! … and she has a big part!! I’m Sooo excited!!!” And so are we, Luc! Now we just have to wait and see what the future holds for both Rihanna and Cara Delevingne.
