Rihanna has reportedly landed a raunchy role for her latest movie performance - playing a dominatrix in a remake of kung-fu cult classic The Last Dragon. The Umbrella hit-maker is set to appear in a new version of Berry Gordy's 1985 martial arts classic, opposite leading man Samuel L. Jackson.

Rihanna has been urged by movie bosses to research the kinky role, according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.

A source tells the publication, "She has landed an incredibly challenging role alongside Samuel L Jackson. But it's not a part for the faint-hearted. She will play a super sexy, super kinky dominatrix in martial arts flick The Last Dragon. She has been told to research the part."

Rihanna made her big screen debut with a cameo in 2006 film Bring It On: All or Nothing.
