Are Xavier Dolan and Adele besties now? The director got behind the camera for the singer’s latest single, “Hello,” which everyone swooned over on YouTube to the count of millions upon millions of views. And it would appear that their creative collaboration is far from over, with Adele now looking to return the favor for Dolan.

Deadline reports that the singer is gearing up for a cameo role in “The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan.”  Jessica Chastain, Kit HaringtonSusan Sarandon and Kathy Bates star in the movie that follows a young actor, 10 years after the death of an American TV star he corresponded with as a teenager, who recollects the pen-pal relationship he used to have with his past idol. The film explores the hardships of fame and hurdles of the movie business through the lives of both, now and then, and reflects on the issue of identity and diversity in Hollywood over the past decade.

Production begins on ‘Donovan’ next year, and it’ll be interesting to see what other cameos might be wrangled for this movie industry tale.
