While singing may be her first love, it seems like Rihanna is really going to try a pursue a career in film as well. The Bajan songstress will make her silver screen debut in the upcoming sci-fi action flick ‘Battleship,’ and now Rihanna is reportedly in talks to star in a new Seth Rogen movie alongside James Franco.

The comedy, entitled ‘The End of the World,’ was written and is being directed by Seth Rogen and ‘Superbad’ co-writer Evan Goldberg. It will reportedly have an all-star cast including Rogen, Franco, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Aziz Ansari and Danny McBride. According to the Huffington Post, ‘The End of the World’ takes place during an A-list Hollywood party in which the stars, who will be portraying amplified versions of themselves, try to make it through the apocalypse alive.

If Rihanna is added to the film roster, this isn’t the first time she’ll be bumping elbows with Oscar-nominated actor James Franco. The ’127 Hours’ actor, who is also known for his comedic roles, was actually her first choice to portray her love interest in the ‘We Found Love’ music video. “She actually asked me to be in that video, the one with the relationship that gets crazy,” Franco told MTV. “I couldn’t do it. But, I guess, I hope that that means there’s mutual love between us.”

But the six degrees of separation doesn’t stop there.¬†Franco, who just wrapped film production on the Harmony Korrine film ‘Spring Breakers’ with co-star Selena Gomez, also posted a YouTube video of himself lip synching to RiRi’s ‘Talk That Talk’ single ‘You Da One.’

‘The End of the World’ is expected to hit theaters on June 14, 2013 … If we make it through “doomsday” this year, that is.
