Rihanna's resume is expanding! The Grammy award-winning singer just landed a leading role in Valérian and the City of a Thousand Planets opposite pal Cara Delevingne.

Director Luc Besson announced the exciting news on his Instagram page. "RIHANNA is in VALERIAN!!!!! ....and she has a big part!!" he wrote alongside a photo of Rihanna looking fierce (below).

The film is an adaptation of the French sci-fi comic about time-traveling agents that defend the universe against evil. Along with Rihanna and Delevingne, the film will star Dane DeHaan and Clive Owen—quite the star-studded cast.

As of now, not much information has been released about the film or Rihanna's role, but according to Besson's Twitter feed, filming for the project starts in a mere 65 days. Stay tuned for more information.
