Adele was already the toast of Hollywood earlier this year when she won an Oscar, but she may have gotten bit by the acting bug while performing for all those famous faces. According to a report from a British publication, the “Rolling In The Deep” singer may play another soulful singer, Dusty Springfield.
A source that claims to be close to Adele told The U.K. Daily Star that she is attached to a springfield biopic that is in the very early stages of development.
As the Huffington Post notes, Hollywood has been trying to get a film made about the “Son of a Preacher Man” singer for years. Back in 2011, Nick Hurran was hired to direct and there were rumors that Kristin Chenoweth may play Springfield. David Stern, a producer on Boardwalk Empire is also reportedly working on the script.
The Adele casting rumor is the first news item related to the film in months. Her rep has not commented on the report.
Adele has not done much acting, but she’s rumored to be appearing in the comic book adaption The Secret Service. She also appeared as herself on an episode of the ABC series Ugly Betty. She won an Oscar for the title track to the latest James Bond film, Skyfall.
