Adele to be given role in Xavier Dolan’s next film

The singer will make her acting debut for the director’s first English-language feature

Adele is apparently in talks to make her feature film debut with director Xavier Dolan, after working with him on her recent music video for “Hello”.

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.
