Little Mix star in talks for big Disney role

Question is - Can she act?

If Little Mix aren’t already big enough stars, one of them might be venturing into film.

Girl band member Jade Thirlwall is in talks to play Princess Jasmine in Guy Ritchie’s live action remake of the Disney classic.

The 24-year-old is said to be obsessed by Disney and can’t wait to potentially play the famous character.

A source told The Mirror: “Jasmine is Jade’s perfect role. She’s delighted to have got this far in the process. The talks have been going on for some time now.

“And the longer they go on, the better her chances are looking. All of the girls have their fingers crossed for her, as they always support each other.”

What could this mean for Little Mix though?

The source added: “They also know it would be a huge commitment. Jade would need to film for months, and that’s before promotion for the movie began.

“So this week they sat down in a break from their tour dance rehearsals and talked about what they might do if Disney decide to cast her. It was quite an emotional conversation.”

Her fans think that it is the best news ever.

Clearly excited, one tweeted: “I BADLY WANT JADE THIRLWALL TO BE PRINCESS JASMINE COME ON @Disney”.

Another said how “cool” it would be.

A very helpful social media user also said that they think Zayn Malik should be Aladdin.

However, there were a few that were unsure.

The film is said to be looking for its main cast, and director Guy Ritchie, 48, held auditions in London a week ago.

When asked who Guy was planning on hiring, he said: “I can’t give you any updates. I mean, I like Will Smith very much.

“It would make me very happy to be making it with him, but the whole thing is very exciting. I’m looking forward to it.”

Thankfully, he has also confirmed that it will definitely be a musical: “I think it’d be tough to not make [Aladdin] a musical.

“I’ve really just immersed myself into that project. So I’m still looking for cast members, we still haven’t found exactly which direction we’re going in. I’m confident that at some stage it will reveal itself to me, but right now it’s just a bit too premature.”
