Rihanna, who's in New York to work on her new album, is also taking acting lessons while in the Big Apple, according to a source. "Rihanna will start filming Personal Protection later this year. She's not ready, acting wise, yet, so she's meeting with a coach," the New York Daily News quoted a source as saying.
Meanwhile, Brown has also become a part of an untitled project. "Chris plays a homeless character. It's a real rags-to-riches story and should be good for his image," a friend said.
Brown will shoot for three weeks over the summer in both L.A. and Memphis.
