We already know Adele can slay a song and a stage, but how about a scene? If her acting is anywhere near as drama-filled as her emotionally intense music, then when Adele makes her acting debut, we're in for a major tear-jerking performance.

According to Deadline, the 25-year-old is reportedly set to make a cameo appearance in the upcoming film The Death and Life of John F. Donovan. The movie will be directed by Xavier Dolan who also contributed his directorial expertise to her breathtakingly beautiful music video for "Hello."

While Adele's three years of downtime made for a painful wait for her fans, the break appears to have worked wonderfully in her favor. The "Hello" video quickly racked up 100 million YouTube views, breaking Taylor Swift's VEVO records and unofficially going down as one of the music videos to most likely make you ugly cry (in our opinion, at least). If she's prepared to follow up that success with a film role, then her timing couldn't be more perfect.

We're still waiting on Adele to confirm her part in the John F. Donovan film, but if and when she does, she'll be in excellent company. The cast includes Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, as well as veteran actresses Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates.

Here's to hoping we see Adele on the big screen in the near future.
