While Rihanna just cancelled her upcoming Victoria Secrets Fashion Show to focus on her eighth studio album Anti, she also has plans to start shooting a movie next January.

Rihanna is staring in Valerian And The City Of A Thousand Planets, which is set to hit theaters in 2017.

Not much is known about Rihanna's role at the moment, but director Luc Besson went on Instagram to tease the fans that her role would be huge.

Besson is the person who directed Lucy in 2014. Rihanna had her first major acting role in another Sci-Fi/Action movie Battleship in 2012 where she did her own stunts. Rihanna also recently did animated film, which did really well in theaters.

Valerian is an adaption of Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres graphic novels, and will take place during the 28th century when humans discover time travel.
