Lady Gaga's music videos are nothing if not epic, so it's no surprise that she's decided to turn her attentions to acting with a role in Robert Rodriguez's new film, Machete Kills.
A poster tweeted by the movie's director reveals the first details of the role - Gaga plays La Chameleon, a pin-up who appears to have a penchant for furs and costume jewellery.
And it seems Rodriguez is pretty impressed with his casting, as he captioned it: "I just finished working with @ladygaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!"
Jessica Alba, Vanessa Hudgens and Amber Heard also head up the cast, ensuring it's fully loaded with Hollywood's hottest ladies.
Set for release in 2013, we'll have to wait a while before we see a further glimpse at Gaga's acting clout.
