Adele is to cameo in Kick Ass director Matthew Vaughn's latest comic book venture, the espionage-themed The Secret Service, reports suggest.
The singer, 25, will reportedly play a villain in the movie, which is also tipped to star Elton John and David Beckham. Vaughn would appear to be looking to pack The Secret Service, which is based on a graphic novel by Scottish comic book icon Mark Millar, with celebrity cameos.
The Secret Service stars Colin Firth and Michael Caine as secret agents battling a variety of villains, one of whom is said to be played by Samuel L Jackson. Firth will reportedly play the uncle of the main character, a young tearaway from the mean streets of London recruited into a British spy school that turns out suave and sophisticated young agents in the vein of 007. Caine reportedly plays the head of the secret service.
Unknown British actor Taron Egerton has been tipped for the role of the young spy.
