Although Rihanna’s film debut didn’t perform remarkably well at the box office, Rih-Rih is still working to become a bona fide movie star.
Depending on how you view remakes, one potential role may help her get there. According to The Sun, Rihanna is itching to reprise the role of “Elvira Hancock.” Those of us who love Scarface know that is the role originally played by Michelle Pfeiffer.
She is quoted to have describing Michelle as having “ridiculous swagger.” Universal Pictures is said to be actively working on developing a new take on the classic starring Al Pacino, though with a “Tony Montana-style drug dealer in the 21st century.”
A source told the publication: “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.”
Now, the last time a Black actress tried to do a role previously played by Michelle Pfeiffer, it didn’t turn out too well for her.
