A production company called Noosa Films has won the film rights to Josephine Baker’s memoir.
Their first choice to play Baker?
Eurweb reports producer W. Lance Reynolds thinks Rihanna could nail the portrayal, leading to a revival of Baker’s works.
“Rihanna is one of the most talented performers of this millennium and with her unique acting and performing abilities I have no doubt she will bring Josephine back to life on the big screen,” he said in a statement.
The Barbadian-crooner has not responded publicly to the request, but the role could be transformative if she accepts it. Baker is an icon and channeling her spirit into a biographical picture won’t come without criticism.
