From close friends to co-stars – it’s the natural progression, apparently.
In what may be the most unsubstantiated rumour since the announcement of Miranda Kerr’s supposed segue into a singing career, The Sun has reported Delevingne and Rodriguez (best known for her role in the Fast and Furious film series) are in talks about co-starring as the duo in a modern adaptation of the 1991 cult classic film.
Despite the fact that the friendship is still a relatively new one (they first bonded at a Knicks basketball game in January), The Sun reported Rodriguez is requesting Delevingne as her co-star.
While Delevingne’s acting experience to date is limited, she’s made her ambitions concerning the big screen known, and has even been credited with having “natural acting talent” by director Michael Winterbottom, who cast her for his 2014 release, The Face of an Angel, which was inspired by the 2009 murder trial involving Amanda Knox.
If the rumours come to fruition, the role will be a major coup for Delevingne, who only landed her first major film role in August last year in Kids in Love and supposedly has some tough competition, with Kristen Stewart, Annalynne McCord and Leighton Meester said to be the other contenders for the role.
