Ora to play villain in action movie

Rita Ora has been cast in The Fast and the Furious 6, it has been reported.

The singer will play the part of a villain in the latest instalment of the action franchise after impressing during her audition for the role.

She will star alongside Vin Diesel and Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in the movie.

It has been reported that Rihanna had initially wanted the role, but her hectic schedule meant that producers had to look elsewhere.

A source told The Sun: "Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in Battleship. But schedules didn't work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude."

Ora recently spoke about her desire to get into acting and said Tom Hardy was her dream co-star.

She said: "Acting is something for the future. For now it's all about my music, but definitely in a few years.

"Tom Hardy is so cute. So hot. In Warrior I fell for him. And in The Dark Knight. He is amazing."
