It looks like Rihanna’s loss is Rita Ora’s gain.

Roc Nation’s new “it” girl is reported to have been casted in the huge silver screen franchise The Fast and Furious 6. Rita will star alongside Hollywood’s hottest eye candy, Vin Diesel and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, allegedly playing the role of a villain.

According to The Sun, the role was originally slated to go to Rihanna after her first on screen performance in Battleship. “Movie bosses were impressed with her role in the action flick. However, due to conflicting schedules, the casting directors decided to go with Rita. “They loved her look and her attitude,” stated a source.

After Ora’s Twitter rant earlier this month about fans comparing her to Ri, we certainly hope this doesn’t cause a rift in their relationship.

Congrats, Rita on landing your first movie role!
