Shadow and Act reports that Bajan pop singer and living wet dream Rihanna may star in the upcoming sixth (and maybe seventh?) installment of The Fast and the Furious franchise.

Number one, I’ve been addicted to Fast Five since I first saw it earlier last month. (Yes, I know, late pass.) It’s certainly the best out of the entire franchise and I’m pumped for the next few installments.

One of the scripts I’d been working on, an urban thriller, has undergone numerous title changes over time. Because of the ensemble nature of the script, I decided on a title that seemed very fitting: Rogues Gallery.
Of course, Rogues Gallery is a very popular term, one certainly ripe for the picking when it comes to feature film titles. But according to the IMDb, there’s no upcoming feature slated with the title, and the last film to use it came out 40 years ago. I figured it was all good.
