Did Adele land her first movie role?

2013-08-12 14:52
London - Adele has been approached to play a villain in The Secret Service.

The 25-year-old singer - who was previously involved in the award-winning blockbuster Skyfall - has reportedly landed a cameo role of a baddie in Matthew Vaughn's new spy film and will join the likes of David Beckham and Sir Elton John in an already star-studded cast.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Adele is exactly what Matthew is looking for.

"He wants the highest-profile names in various fields to boost the film's cause and turn it into a mega-money franchise.

"You can't get much bigger than Adele in music, which is why he's so keen to get her involved. She'll be great value on the big screen."

A spokesperson for Adele has refused to comment on the news.

The film - which is based on a spy graphic novel by Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons - stars Colin Firth and Sir Michael Caine as superagents fighting a team of villains headed by Samuel L Jackson and will feature cameo appearances from a range of A-list stars.

Vaughn - who previously directed another Millar comic book adaptation, Kick-Ass, as well as X-Men: First Class - has been eyeing a big Hollywood name for the role, and previously offered the part to Tom Cruise and Leonardo DiCaprio. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
