Adele, who won the Academy Award earlier this year for Best Original song for Skyfall from the James Bond film of the same name, will star alongside British actors Colin Firth and Michael Caine and the American Samuel L Jackson, in the spy-flick.
The movie will be directed by Matthew Vaughan who also directed Kick Ass.
Twenty-five year old Adele will reportedly play a villain in the film which is also expected to feature British icons David Beckham and Sir Elton John. She previously made her acting debut in the television series Ugly Betty back in 2009.
The singer/songwriter has been busy in the last year, having a baby and working on her new album.
Adele, who became a mom in October, has been back in studio working on her latest album since April with producers James Ford and Kid Harpoon.
The album will be a follow up to her last hit record 21. She has also won a Grammy and a Brit Award for Skyfall.
The album, which is reported to be ready to hit the shelves mid-2014, is said to be edgy .
