Rihanna In the Running to Play Josephine Baker

A production company called Noosa Films has a Josephine Baker biopic in the works, and their eyes are set on Rihanna to play the lead role, Eurweb reports.

“Rihanna is one of the most talented performers of this millennium and with her unique acting and performing abilities I have no doubt she will bring Josephine back to life on the big screen,” said producer W. Lance Reynolds in a statement.

Noosa Films won the rights to Baker’s autobiography Josephine From French publishers, Editions Robert Laffont.
