"The Apocalypse" is likely to have plenty of celebrity cameos, but there's one in particular who James Franco has his sights set on: Rihanna.
During an interview at CinemaCon, Franco let it slip that there might be a role for her in the upcoming post apocalyptic flick. (Based on what we know of the planned celebrity cameos, perhaps that means she's going to be playing herself as a corpse?) No matter the size of her role, Franco seems genuinely excited about Rihanna's inclusion in the film.
"I think she's going to be in the new movie I'm doing, Seth Rogen's directorial debut," he teased. "I think she's getting a little part in that."
The main cast of "The Apocalypse"?formerly titled "Jay and Seth vs. The Apocalypse"?includes Rogen, Franco, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Danny McBride and Craig Robinson. It's going to be an expansion of the short film Baruchel and Rogen made several years back, and the plan is to include as many cameos as they can get. Unfortunately, one of the celebrities who probably won't be a part of the film is Daniel Radcliffe.
"It doesn't look like he's willing to push things as far as we [are]," Rogen said in a recent interview with MTV News.
Even if they can't get a "Harry Potter" star, it's clear that Rogen, Franco and the whole gang are going to have plenty of Los Angeles celebs to play with, Rihanna included, if casting pans out.
