British singing sensation Adele is in negotiations with Canadian auteur Xavier Dolan for a reported “character part” in his first English feature film, “The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.”
The “I Killed My Mother” director’s eccentric work ethic may have deeply rubbed off on the singer as she confessed that she wants to be involved in any future acting project of his.
“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.” Adele said.
Dolan’s seventh output as a director will tackle the pitfalls of making it into show business as filtered through the recollection of a budding pre-teen actor and his written correspondence with a veteran movie star.
The film will begin principal photography in the spring of 2016, according to Variety. It will star Jessica Chastain, Kit Harrington, Kathy Bates, and Susan Sarandon. Dolan, a Cannes festival favorite will be working once more on his own script and will co-produce the project with Nancy Grant and Lyse Lafontaine.
There is no additional information if the Grammy award winner, who previously sang the James Bond-theme song for Skyfall,” will make a contribution to the soundtrack of the upcoming drama film.
However, Adele’s latest opus, the tear-jerking “Hello” has been reported by the Daily Mail to be the “cause celebre” for women to patch-up unresolved issues with their old flames.
A poll was generated and the affecting track along with its music video of Adele fixing her gaze outside of the window while listlessly looking at her phone; somehow deeply struck a chord with 64 percent of women involved in the study. It was noted that these women got in touch with their exes to patch things up. The records of the study were compiled in a dating website mentioned in the article.
Adele’s “Hello” music video also has been reported to have generated a stunning 27.7 million views in a matter of just 24 hours.
