FourFiveSeconds? More like FourFiveCenturies! Rihanna will travel through space and time with model Cara Delevingne in the upcoming sci-fi film Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets.

The Bajan singer has already proven her command of the silver and small screen. She was sweet in Home, booted-up in Battleship, and badass in her video for "BBHMM." Her Valerian role has yet to be disclosed by writer/director Luc Besson, but he promised in a tweet that the V95 covergirl has a “big part.”

Besson brings his talents from past works Lucy and The Fifth Element into an adaption of the French graphic novel Valérian and Laureline. The book-to-movie's title characters will be played by Dane DeHaan and Delevingne, respectively. Rihanna is the fourth cast member to join, following Clive Owen. Shooting starts in December, but the film's buzz is already building with a Yahoo Style costume contest in which fans create futuristic cocktail attire for the actors. Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is expected to hit theaters in 2017.
