British singer Adele has reportedly been roped in to play the bad girl in Matthew Vaughn’s latest movie “The Secret Service."
The movie is based on a novel of the same name by Mark Millar and David Gibbons, and the story revolves around a veteran secret service agent who takes in a rookie under his wing.
According to reports, Adele is set to enact the role of a bad girl in the movie, alongside Samuel L. Jackson, who plays the film’s main antagonist.
“Adele is exactly what Matthew is looking for,’ a source told The Sun on Sunday, according to Entertainmentwise. “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.”
Adele’s representative is yet to comment on these rumors.
Adele has a bit of acting experience as she had previously done a cameo on the sitcom “Ugly Betty” in 2009. The singer appeared as herself on the show.
"The Secret Service," directed by Vaughn who also made “X Men: First Class,” is currently slated for a late 2014 release. And, according to reports, the cast includes Colin Firth and Taron Egerton in lead roles.
However, a female lead is yet to be decided, with Variety magazine reporting that “Harry Potter” star Emma Watson and “Dark Shadows” actress Bella Heathcote are being considered.
Other notable celebrities who have been approached for the project include David Beckham and Sir Elton John, but it is not sure if they are on board yet.
"Becks was asked by Colin Firth if he'd like to be in the movie but he is yet to fully commit,” a source close to the project was quoted as saying by Independent.ie. "He loves movies and fancies appearing on the big screen - but just as a one-off, not a full-time career."
