The 'We Found Love' has reportedly based some of her music videos on Michelle Pfeiffer's character in the flick.

Rihanna is apparently looking to star in a remake of the Al Pacino classic gangster film Scarface.

The 'You Da One' singer has apparantly modeled some of her music videos and performances on the character played by Hollywood star Michelle Pfeiffer in the film.

"Rihanna loves Scarface," a source told The Sun. "Some of her music videos have been based on Michelle's character, Elvira."

Universal Pictures are reportedly working on a reworking of the 1983 movie and added that the character, Elvira has "ridiculous swagger".

"She knows all the words and even has her walk perfected," added the insider.

The Bajan star made her big screen debut earlier this year when she played the part of a "badass" weapons officer in the summer blockbuster Battleship.

She has already been seen shooting scenes for a new Seth Rogen comedy and is rumoured for such forthcoming films as The Fast And The Furious Six.

Meanwhile, Rihanna will be making a return to performing next week when she takes to the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards 2012.

She is the most nominated female artists at the bash and is also currently working on her new studio album.

The 'Talk That Talk' star is also expected to feature during Coldplay's performance at the closing ceremony of the London 2012 Paralympic Games.
