Luc Besson had to persuade producers to cast Rihanna in ‘Valerian…’

Feature

Filmmaker Luc Besson forced producers of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets to get singer Rihanna in the movie.

For me, Rihanna is the ultimate—she's the queen.
The Fifth Element filmmaker knew from the start that he wanted to cast Rihanna as Bubble in his new sci-fi film, but Besson had to persuade his producers as they were unsure if they could get her in the independent film, reports femalefirst.co.uk. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bcIlQFPbPnM “Bubble is the ultimate artists - that's the part. And for me, Rihanna is the ultimate—she's the queen. I thought about her from the beginning. And when we started the cast, I said, 'For Bubble, I'd love to contact Rihanna.' They (producers) said 'What's your second choice?' I said, 'Why?' They said, 'Luc, come on.' I said, 'Why not? Let's try it. Let's see'," Besson said at the premiere of the film in London. Besson and the Stay singer enjoyed a normal relationship on set. “When she got emotional she let me get in. She was perfect,” he said. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets also features model-turned-actress Cara Delevingne, Clive Owen, Ethan Hawke, Rutger Hauer and Dane DeHaan. Valerian and the City of Thousand Planets is in theatres.
