British singing superstar Adele is reportedly in talks to make a cameo in Canadian director Xavier Dolan’s English-language debut The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan. The singer, who recently worked with Dolan on the video to her comeback single “Hello”, has already had a taste of the film business. She sang- and won the Academy Award- for the theme song to the previous Bond film Skyfall.
Adele is not expected to record any original music for John F. Donovan, which stars Jessica Chastain, Kit Harrington, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates.
Seville Pictures is selling the film at AFM, with CAA co-repping domestic rights. As with his previous six films- Dolan is still only 26- Dolan is also writing and producing, Dolan is also producing with his Sons Of Manual partner Nancy Grant and Lyse Lafontaine of Lyla Films. Joe Iacono is exec producer.
