Rihanna has apparently lost a movie role to pop rival Rita Ora.

The Talk That Talk singer was lined up to play a baddie in The Fast And The Furious 6 after impressing Hollywood head honchos with her acting debut in this year's Battleship, but it seems Rita has now been offered the part.

The Sun reports that there were also scheduling problems which got in the way of Ri-Ri taking on the role.

A source said: "Rihanna impressed movie bosses with her role in Battleship.

"But schedules didn't work out and Rita really shone during castings. They loved her look and her attitude."

Hot Right Now singer Rita will share the screen with Vin Diesel and wrestler-turned-actor Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson in the high-octane car racing flick, which is due to be released next year.
