There were rumors that Rihanna was going to star in a new movie Annette with Adam Driver, but her people said that was not true.
The “Love On The Brain” singer, who just guest starred on the A&E show Bates Motel, is reportedly wanted by Dan Aykroyd to star in an all-female reboot of the ’80s classic, The Blues Brothers.
The story was first reported by Dish Nation. (Great show, by the way, check your local listings if you haven’t seen it!)
No word on if the title would be changed to The Blues Sisters or Soul Sisters, but the re-make is, in part, due to the success of the recent Ghostbusters revival. Jennifer Hudson could possibly star as Rihanna’s sidekick.
In 2015, Aykroyd confirmed that he was developing a sequel and the focus would be on Elwood helping find a new generation to lead the blues across the States.
If you’ve never seen the original, here’s the trailer:
