Adele could star in her first Hollywood film role

Adele looks like she could be making the jump from her singing career to acting!

The superstar singer made an incredible impression on New Zealanders when she came her to perform 3 sold out shows in March, but told fans this year that it would most likely be the last time she would tour again. 

However, she looks set for a new challenge as she has been approached to play Nancy, the prostitute lover of Bill Sikes, in a new film version of hit musical, Oliver.

Sources say she is "seriously considering" the part.

"She's talked about [her 4-year-old son] Angelo being her number one priority and she sees this as a role that he could appreciate too. It would be a new challenge for her but one she would definitely be up for," a source told The Sun.

The film is based on Charles Dickens' classic tale and is being Sir Cameron Mackintosh and Working Title Films, who made the 2012 hit remake of Les Miserables.

If she takes up the part it will be the 29-year-old's acting debut.
