Dua Lipa has 'New Rules' for Hollywood: She's gonna be in movies now
No, you did not "Hallucinate." Pop star and queen of the quarantine-stream Dua Lipa is "Levitating" on over to Tinseltown to act in her first movie.
Yes, Argylle, the new spy thriller from The King's Man director Matthew Vaughn, will have the likes of The Witcher's hottie with a body Henry Cavill, Schitt's Creek Emmy winner Catherine O'Hara, one of the Seven Psychopaths Sam Rockwell, Bryan "the one who knocks" Cranston, The Suicide Squad's John Cena, Jurassic World's Bryce Dallas Howard, and Marvel's resident motherf---er Samuel L. Jackson. But it will also have Dua Lipa following up her scene-stealing role of Marjorie in that 2020 "USO" Saturday Night Live sketch with a primo acting role.
The Future Nostalgia singer, 25, will also provide original music for the movie's title track and score.
It's unclear what role Ms. Lipa will be playing, but we Dua know that Argylle is based on author Ellie Conway's soon-to-be-published novel about the world's greatest spy — who for some reason is not Dua Lipa — getting caught up in a global adventure.
"When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming's books of the 50s," Vaughn, who's directing Argylle, said in a statement in reference to the novels that inspired the James Bond movie franchise. "This is going to reinvent the spy genre." He has Dua, so of course it's going to reinvent the spy genre.
