British tabloid The Mirror is reporting that Rihanna might star alongside Leonardo DiCaprio in his next movie The Crowded Room.
Gossip columns are adamant that Rihanna and DiCaprio (DiRi) are dating, which has paved the way for the singer’s involvement in the film.
The Crowded Room is an adaptation of Daniel Keyes’ 1981 book The Minds of Billy Milligan – the true story of the first person to successfully use multiple personality disorder as a defense in a court of law, after being charged with robbery and rape. Rihanna is rumoured to play one of his victims.
Milligan had twenty-four personalities, only two of which were stabby-stabby kill-kill ones. DiCaprio has reportedly been eyeing the part for close to two decades, presumably hoping one of those identities will finally win him an Oscar.
Jason Smilovic (Lucky Number Slevin) has been hired to pen the script alongside Todd Katzberg.
