The action flick, which also stars actor Henry Cavill, marks the singer's first major acting role
Dua Lipa is swapping the stage for the screen for her latest project.
Dressed in a glittering gold dress and blonde wig, Lipa approaches Cavill, who plays the titular “world's greatest spy,” and seductively tells him, “I certainly hope you can dance as well as you dress.”
"There’s only one way to find out,” teases Cavill, before taking Lipa’s hand and leading her to the middle of a dancefloor.
While the "New Rules" singer's character in the film is yet to be confirmed, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that she will also provide original music for the title track and score.
Additionally, it appears that Lipa will share the screen with Cavill in fantasy sequences based on a best-selling series of espionage novels written by Howard's character, the cat-loving author Elly Conway.
According to Universal Pictures, which is a co-distributor of the thriller alongside Apple Original Films, things in the author's world turn upside down "when the plots of Elly’s fictional books — which center on secret agent Argylle and his mission to unravel a global spy syndicate — begin to mirror the covert actions of a real-life spy organization."
Soon, she finds herself accompanied by a real-life spy played by Sam Rockwell as the two race "across the world to stay one step ahead of the killers as the line between Elly’s fictional world and her real one begins to blur," the synopsis continues.
When the project was first announced, Vaughn compared it to the James Bond franchise. “When I read this early draft manuscript I felt it was the most incredible and original spy franchise since Ian Fleming’s books of the 50s. This is going to reinvent the spy genre,” he said in a statement via Deadline.
According to the outlet, Argylle will be the first in at least a three-part movie franchise set across the world.
That said, the trilogy's first entry is a fitting project for the director, whose resumé includes iconic action movies, the Kingsman franchise, Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class. The film also fits nicely in Cavill’s wheelhouse, given the British actor’s extensive experience in the spy genre with The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and the Mission: Impossible franchise.
