According to a new report, singer Rihanna is being lined up for a small role in Sam Mendes’ follow-up to Skyfall. Eon Productions have apparently approached the 26-year old Barbadian singer to see if she would be interested in making some sort of cameo appearance. Most likely as a Bond girl if we had to hazard a guess!

Rihanna does have some acting experience of course after playing herself in This is the End and a widely ridiculed part in Battleship where she dropped lines like, “Mahalo, motherf***ers!” while battling aliens.

According to an unnamed source, “Rihanna is a big fan of the Bond films and has always loved the idea of appearing in one. She didn’t even need to think about it, she knows she wants to do it. She’s really excited.”

If this is true, she will join a returning Daniel Craig along with Ralph Fiennes and Naomie Harris.

Whether this cameo would lead to the singer also providing the theme song for James Bond 24 is unknown, but it would make a lot of sense and Rihanna would follow in the footsteps of Madonna if that is the case.

Take this with a pinch of salt for now of course! How would you feel about Rihanna appearing in the movie?
