The biopic will document the troubled life of the iconic musician performer, and the singer is reportedly first choice to star in the lead role.
Producer Lance W. Reynolds says in a statement, "Rihanna is one of the most talented performers of this millennium, and with her unique acting and performing abilities, I have no doubt she will bring Josephine back to life on the big screen."
The film about the life of Baker, who first became notorious for dancing topless with a tutu of fake bananas in 1920s France, is set for release next year.

Josephine Baker was a true talented natural singer. She didn't need auto tune like Rihanna who still sings out of tune and can carry a melody. Good news is that Rihanna is an excellent lip sync karoake singer from all her concerts, so a voice over from Josephine Baker will just be another kayoake routine for Rihanna.
Stil is an insult to the talent of Joseohine Baker.
