Battleship director Peter Berg admits that while filming the upcoming blockbuster one of his only concerns was that Rihanna would be eaten by a shark.
The film, which hits theaters this weekend was shot in Hawaii, and Rihanna makes her big screen debut as a naval officer. Berg was so concerned that the singer/actress would be eaten by a shark that he took extra security measures.
Berg tells movie website Omelete, “My biggest challenge was making sure Rihanna never got eaten by a shark. My fear was that I would be the director that allowed Rihanna to be eaten by a shark.”
“So I was very careful – when she was in the water I had men around her and they were (to make a gesture) if they saw one.”
Battleship also stars Taylor Kitsch, Jesse Plemons, and Alexander Skarsgard, and will try and take down ‘The Avengers’ this Friday.
