Cara Delevingne is taking the acting world by storm.
After landing a handful of roles in films, including Anna Karenina, The Face of an Angel, Kids in Love, London Fields and Ugly Boy, Delevingne is following her dreams of transitioning from modeling to acting with a new role in 2016's Suicide Squad.
"Cara Delevingne has been cast in Warner Bros' super-villain film, Suicide Squad," Vogue UK reported on Wednesday. "Delevingne will play the magical villain Enchantress, alongside Tom Hardy, Margot Robbie, Will Smith and Jared Leto - who will take on the role of The Joker - in the film that is slated for release in 2016."
Suicide Squad is a film based on the DC comic-book series of the same name. According to Vogue, characters in the movie play a group of "anti-heroes," who are employed by the government and required to go on missions, which will reduce their prison sentences.
“The Warner Bros. roots are deep on this one,” Warner Bros. president Greg Silverman said in a statement, via a Variety report on Tuesday. “We look forward to seeing this terrific ensemble, under David Ayer’s amazing guidance, give new meaning to what it means to be a villain and what it means to be a hero.”
In addition to the roles listed, Delevingne is also starring in two more films, Paper Towns and Pan, both due out in 2015.
Suicide Squad begins filming this April in Toronto, and will hit theaters on Aug. 5, 2016.
