Beyoncé to star in movie with Brad Pitt

2015-03-25 18:00

Los Angeles - Beyoncé could be set to star in The Big Short.

The Drunk In Love hitmaker is rumoured to have joined the star studded cast of the upcoming film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the housing and credit bubble of the early 2000s.

Beyonce would be starring alongside Hollywood heartthrobs Brad Pitt, Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling and Oscar nominee Steve Carell in the movie written by and to be directed by Adam McKay.

Speaking on CBS This Morning about how the film was scheduled to begin shooting in New Orleans, he said: "An incredible cast... Christian Bale, Ryan Gosling, Steve Carell... And I think Beyoncé."

The 33-year-old star - who has three-year-old daughter Blue Ivy with husband Jay Z - last appeared on the big screen in 2009 when she starred alongside Idris Elba and Ali Larter in Obsessed.

She has since voiced the character Queen Tara in the 2013 animated movie Epic and shared screen time with Blake Lively and Jake Gyllenhaal in a teaser video for her joint On the Run tour with Jay last year.
