After conquering the music world, Lady Gaga is now setting her sights on the big screen.
The pop superstar has announced on Twitter that she will make her feature-acting debut in director Robert Rodriguez's upcoming Machete Kills, the sequel to his 2010 B-movie slaughterfest starring Danny Trejo as a former Mexican Federale out for revenge.
And based on the crazy-looking poster for the character she's playing in the exploitation flick, dubbed La Chameleón, Mama Monster means business.
In the one-sheet, a topless Gaga strikes her sultriest Marilyn Monroe pose while wearing sexy thigh-high stockings and a dead wolf wrapped around her body. A still smoking gun rests in her right hand—no doubt the Lady's not to be trifled with.
News of the surprise casting was first broken by the filmmaker yesterday on his Twitter page.
"I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills, she kicked SO MUCH ASS! Holy Smokes. Blown away!" Rodriguez wrote.
Gaga followed shortly thereafter with a note to to her 27 million followers.
"Yes This is real," the "Judas" singer tweeted along with a twitpic of the poster.
She later added: "Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress in the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @ RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane."
We can't wait to see the results.
