Adele Planning Her Move Into Acting: Singer Signs Up For Villainous Role In New Spy Film
The Oscar-winning singer is rumoured to have linked up with 'X Men: First Class' director Matthew Vaughn to co-star in the upcoming picture
Adele is apparently set to be the next singer to make the inevitable move in front for the cameras after reportedly being cast in the upcoming action film The Secret Service. The singer has reportedly joined a cast that already includes Samuel L Jackson and Colin Firth and will be flexing her acting chops in a villainous role in the new film.
Does Adele have a few more Oscars coming her way?
The 'Skyfall' singer will reportedly be playing the role of one of the villains in The Secret Service, which is being adapted for the screen from Mark Millar's original manuscript by Vaughn and Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, X Men: First Class). Her participation in the film hasn't been confirmed just yet, so it is still unknown what role she will be playing, however some reports state that she will only be taking on a cameo role. If so, then this will be much like her last on-screen appearance - on the hit show Ugly Betty - where she also played a cameo role.
The Oscar winner - who won in the Best Original Song category at this year's ceremony for her 'Skyfall' theme song - isn't the only British star to be rumoured to have a role in the movie, as Sir Michael Caine, Sir Elton John and even David Beckham are all rumoured to be playing a part in the film, with nothing yet confirmed for either.

"Adele is exactly what Matthew is looking for," a source told The Sun on Sunday (11 August). “[Vaughn] wants the highest-profile names in various fields to boost the film’s cause and turn it into a mega-money franchise.”
Filming for The Secret Service is due to begin later this year, so chances are we'll find out whether Adele will be starring in the film sooner rather than later. We'll keep you up to date with this story as it progresses.
