The singer will make her acting debut for the director’s first English-language feature
According to reports on Screen Daily, the French-Canadian filmmaker has been thinking of the singer for his first English-language drama, The Death and Life of John F. Donovan – which, after the soaring success of last year's Mommy, is already hotly-anticipated.
The film will be centered around an American movie star, whose career gets torn apart by a correspondence with an 11-year-old. And, although Adele's role hasn't yet been specified, the film has a stellar line-up already in place: including Jessica Chastain, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates.
The news comes just as Adele admitted that she'd caught the acting bug after working with him on her comeback single – which shattered “most-viewed” records within hours of being put up. “I’m sure I’ll get some flak for this, but I actually would like to act after working with Xavier,” she told Kiss FM recently. “I would be in a film for him, definitely.”
Shooting is expected to start in Spring 2016.
