UPDATE: A rep for Rihanna says the singer is not starring in this film, despite the Variety report.

Rihanna will reportedly star alongside Adam Driver in an upcoming film called Annette by cult French director Leos Carax. 

Variety reports Amazon Studios has acquired U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to the music-filled drama, which marks Carax's English-language debut. 

The film was written by and features original music by the art-rock duo Sparks. It focuses on a widowed standup comedian and his young daughter, who shows a surprising gift. The film has been rumored to start shooting this spring and is said to span across several international locations. 

Rooney Mara was previously attached to the project, but had to leave due to other commitments, according to Variety. It is unclear what Rihanna's role will be.
