Last month, Dua Lipa became an official Versace girl (finally), having dropped one of the best albums of 2020, Future Nostalgia, the year before. Now, she’s lined up for big screen stardom as well, with her first feature film role in the upcoming thriller Argylle.
The musician joins the film – directed and produced by Matthew Vaughn – as part of an all-star cast that also includes Samuel L. Jackson, Henry Cavill, Bryan Cranston, Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Rockwell, Catherine O’Hara, and John Cena.
The project is based upon a yet-to-be-released debut spy novel of the same name, from author Ellie Conway, and set to arrive in 2022. According to Deadline, it follows the “world’s greatest spy” on a James Bond-esque globetrotting adventure.
“When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the 50s,” says Vaughn, adding: “This is going to reinvent the spy genre.”
Besides starring, Dua Lipa is set to provide original music for the action film’s title track and score. The film itself is scheduled to start shooting in Europe this August.
