Rihanna is full of surprises, isn't she?

First, the "B**tch Better Have My Money" singer showed up to a recent performance rocking blue hair (and absolutely slaying it, because when does she not?) and now the bad gyal is headed to the big screen for a part in an upcoming sci-fi film alongside her BFF Cara Delevingne, who also has a part in the flick.

According to Billboard, film director Luc Besson spilled the deets on Instagram by posting a stunning photo of Rihanna along with the caption, "RIHANNA is in VALERIAN!!!!!....and she has a big part!! I'm Sooo excited!!!😊."

Rih's last big screen credit came earlier this year in the animated film Home, where she voiced the main character Tip alongside co-stars Steve Martin and Jennifer Lopez. The release date for Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets is set for July 21, 2017*, although it is unclear what Rih's specific role will be.

Either way, we're super excited for Rihanna to continue making such major #bossmoves. In the past few months alone, the singer's made announcements about launching a beauty line, collaborating with Puma, joining season nine of The Voice as a "key advisor to the coaches" and she reportedly signed a $25 million deal with Samsung to sponsor her upcoming tour and album.

Yas, Rihanna. We love the way you slay! Now about that album...

OK, fine. We'll continue waiting patiently.

*A previous version of this article incorrectly listed the title as Valerian and the release date as July 17, 2017.
