Model Cara Delevingne is expanding her acting resume after landing a role in an upcoming drama about a group of party-loving teenagers.

The British beauty will star in Kids In Love, which focuses on a gang of super-rich youngsters living a drug-fuelled lifestyle in London, according to Britain's Mail on Sunday newspaper.

A source tells the publication, "It will be Cara's first (major) big screen role, so she's really excited about it and is eager to make sure that she does a good job. Her name in itself will obviously be a big draw for the film too."

Delevingne has previously enjoyed a small role in the 2012 movie version of Anna Karenina, which starred Aaron Taylor-Johnson.

Kids In Love is due to start shooting in September (13).
