Rihanna Eyes Elvira Hancock Role in ‘Scarface’ Remake

Rihanna loves her bad girl image. Though the ‘Where Have You Been’ singer insists she doesn’t want to be a role model, she still likes playing other roles. This time, she wants to have a role the ‘Scarface’ remake.

RiRi supposedly wants to play Elvira Hancock because the blond movie bombshell had “ridiculous swagger.” A source told The Sun, “Rihanna loves ‘Scarface.’ Some of her music videos have been based on Michelle’s character, Elvira. She knows all the words and even has her walk perfected.” That’d certainly save time on rehearsals — Rihanna would never have to call out for her lines!

‘Scarface’ became an instant classic when it premiered in 1983, but many film buffs don’t realize that Pacino’s career-defining role was itself a remake of a 1932 flick.

This won’t be Rihanna’s first cinematic rodeo if she does indeed snag the part. The Bajan beauty played a Navy weapons officer Cora Raikes in ‘Battleship,’ which was a hit overseas but sunk in U.S. box offices. She’s also slated to star in the animated film ‘Happy Smekday!’ and plays herself in Seth Rogen’s ‘The End of the World.’

Rihanna’s tough but tender attitude, as well as her chameleon looks (she rocked an almost identical look to Michelle Pfeiffer’s back in February) make her a force to be reckoned with for this part if she does indeed snag it. Break a leg, Rih!
