Rihanna might not have a lot of acting experience, but she's aiming high for her next role. The Sun reports that Riri wants a role in the new Scarface movie. She would like to play Tony Montana's girlfriend, Elvira Hancock, originally played by Michelle Pfeiffer in the 1983 version of the film.
According to Deadline, Universal Pictures is developing the new Scarface, which will combine elements of the 1932 and 1983 versions.
The film is not intended to be a remake or a sequel. It will take the common elements of the first two films: An outsider, an immigrant, barges his way into the criminal establishment in pursuit of a twisted version of the American dream, becoming a kingpin through a campaign of ruthlessness and violent ambition.
Rihanna loves the Michelle Pfeiffer character, who she has described as having “ridiculous swagger."
“Rihanna loves Scarface. Some of her music videos have been based on Michelle’s character, Elvira," said a source. "She knows all the words and even has her walk perfected.”
