Adele May Make Acting Debut in Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan

According to Screen Daily, the British Superstar is in talks to make her feature film debut in Xavier Dolan’s The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.

Adele seems to have had such a good time working with the gay French-Canadian filmmaker, who directed her “Hello” video, that she wants to work with him again. She told UK radio station Kiss FM: “I’m sure I’ll get some flak for this, but I actually would like to act after working with Xavier. I would be in a film for him, definitely.”

In Dolan’s upcoming English-language drama, an American movie star discovers that his correspondence with an 11-year-old actor has been exposed, birthing assumptions that begin to destroy his life and career.

The singer, who won an Academy Award for “Skyfall,” her James Bond theme song, would take a small supporting role in the film, which will star Jessica Chastain, Kit Harrington, Susan Sarandon, and Kathy Bates.

Dolan, 25, is famous for his films Mommy, Laurence Anyways, Heartbeats, and I Killed My Mother, all of which have been shown at Cannes. His thriller Tom at the Farm was released in North America earlier this year.

Shooting for The Death and Life of John F. Donovan is slated to begin in spring 2016.
