Rihanna and Adam Driver in a Musical?


If you thought La La Land‘s humiliating defeat at this year’s Oscars was proof of the end of the nostalgia wave, we’ve only got three words to say to you:

Asshole, think again!

Only today we learned that Queen of Everything Rihanna and King of Weird Indie Media Adam Driver will be starring in Annette, the story of a doomed love affair between an opera singer and a comedian. The only question is– who plays who?

Rihanna has taken a minute to step back from her acting career in recent years (and we can see why– Anti- and Drake drama would be enough to claim anyone’s full attention.) But we’re ready for RiRi to take her rightful place on the silver screen once more, especially under the direction of Leos Carax (Holy Motors, Tokyo.)

Weird as it all sounds, we’ll take it. New Musical Wave, we’re prepared to ride you the hell out the sea.
