‘Blues Brothers‘ is to be rebooted and Rihanna, should its producer have his way, will lead the way.
Full story below…
The first ‘Blue Brothers‘ movie was released in 1980 and featured appearances by Aretha Franklin, Carrie Fisher and Ray Charles.
In 2000, ‘Blues Brothers 2000’ welcomed Erykah Badu into the fold.
This year, the original producer Dan Aykroyd, has revealed that he wants to build a reboot named ‘Soul Sisters‘.
Where Rihanna comes into the picture?
RiRi is top of the list for female leads by Dan and movie producers in an all-girl Blues Brothers reboot. Dan believes she’s the right personality to drive the project forward, given she’s one of today’s top performers and would have no problem singing original blues and soul song covers. Jennifer Hudson is also mooted by movie bosses as someone who could star alongside RiRi, and the pair of them could be the perfect double-act to rival Jake and Elwood Blues. RiRi is definitely keen on the idea of expanding her acting – a big project showcasing her voice and acting would take her career to new heights.
Fenty recently completed work on the movie ‘Oceans 8′ and is expected to announce her commitments to a number of big screen projects before the year’s end.
