Bet you can't wait for a flim based on the Battleship board game starring Rihanna

A7: You sunk my career


Rihanna will make her film debut in May 2012 with Peter Berg's "Battleship," a sci-fi action movie based on the classic Battleship board game. Although Rihanna's specific role has yet to be confirmed, she'll be acting alongside Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard, both of whom play brothers defending their ship against an alien invasion.

Coming May 2013: Antoine Fuqua's Chutes And Ladders. Starring Ke$ha and Ken Watanabe, this tale set during the Third Crusades will mix action, romance, and remedial learning as Saracen heathens attempt to discredit Byzantine meritocracy in the classroom.

Well, now I can safely add this to my list of films that I won't see in 2012.

I'm actually looking forward to seeing Justin Bieber in Gus Van Sant's Candyland.

I hope people will stop complaining about Hollywood being creatively bankrupt.

Eric Northman is in this? I would've thought this kinda material would be beneath him.

I love that a guy named "Kitsch" is in this.

The aliens in Battleship will look like Hungry Hungry Hippos, so you should be pleased.

Coming July 2014: Neveldine & Taylor's JENGA. Gerard Butler's mental and physical skills will be tested as he takes turns against a serial killer (played by John Malkovich) to remove a block from a tower and balance it on top, creating a taller and increasingly unstable structure as the game progresses.

They already have the taglines for marketing, "Next summer, the blocks will fall." and "What is Jenga?"

Per Neveldine, "Remember that Domination video game played by James Bond versus Maximilian Largo in NEVER SAY NEVER AGAIN? Well, multiply the intensity by 100 times and that's what you will see our JENGA film."

I just can't fathom what aspects of the game could be used in a film script. Are the ship captains going to be calling out sector designations like A-7 and B-5 and how exciting would that be?

Nothing is beneath anyone for the right amount of $$$$.

I really don't know why they need to call the movie Battleship, as it really has nothing in common with the game.

That might not sound exciting but add a hand-held camera and MTV style editing and you've got...ummmm...yeah it still sounds shitty.
