Lady Gaga has landed a role in the upcoming British spy film The Secret Service.
The singer will make a cameo appearance as an exaggerated version of herself in the Matthew Vaughn-directed film.
A source told The Sun, “Gaga only had to commit one day to film her scenes early next year. She’s such an Anglophile she didn’t take much persuading.”
Lady Gaga joins a growing list of celebrities rumored for the film. Adele, David Beckham, Elton John, and Taylor Swift have also been offered roles in The Secret Service. It is unclear whether they will also be playing themselves or different characters.
A source said that Vaughn “looked at a number of actresses” before settling on Swift.
“She’s also someone fresh and unseen in Hollywood terms which was massively appealing,” the source said.
“She will be required to have some heavy-duty martial arts training in order for her character to convincingly kick Samuel L. Jackson’s butt,” the source added. ”It will be Taylor’s biggest challenge to date but she cannot wait.”
Lady Gaga will also be making her acting debut in Machete Kills as La Chameleon. She will also make a cameo appearance in Sin City: A Dame to Kill For.
The Secret Service is Matthew Vaughn’s first directing gig since 2011’s X-Men: First Class. While he directed, wrote, and produced the first Kick-Ass, he returned only as a producer for Kick-Ass 2. The sequel is directed by Jeff Wadlow.
The Secret Service is adapted from Mark Millar’s graphic novel of the same name. There hasn’t been much revealed about the film’s plot, with IMDB saying simply, “A veteran secret agent takes a young upstart under his wing.”
The hardcover collection of the graphic novels says:
“Under Uncle Jack’s supervision, Gary’s spy skills and confidence blossom–but when the duo learn what’s behind the celebrity kidnappings, the knowledge comes at a price. The conspiracy begins to unravel, but who can be trusted when so many prominent figures seem to be involved?”
The Secret Service is scheduled for a November 14, 2014 release.
