Cara Delevingne to Star in a Film With Jared Leto and Will Smith

And maybe even Oprah?

Cara Delevingne is officially an actrice. From fairy tale Chanel films with Pharrell (opens in new tab) to snagging lead roles in Paper Towns (opens in new tab) and Pan (opens in new tab), Cara's already added some plum theatrical gigs to her resume. Now, she's breaking into action, starring in a big-time movie alongside Jared Leto and Will Smith.

Delevingne has been cast in The Suicide Squad, a Warner Brothers adaptation of the DC supervillains-turned-government-agents comic book, according to E! Online (opens in new tab). Delevingne will play the Enchantress, whose alter ego, June Moone, is a freelance artist.

Leto will play the Joker while Smith has been cast as Deadshot. Also in the film is Tom Hardy (swoon who will play Rick Flagg), Jai Courtney (Boomerang), and Margot Robbie (Harley Quinn, the Joker's girlfriend).

Executives are reportedly still looking to cast Amanda Waller, who oversees the Suicide Squad, and have their eyes on Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer, or Oprah. Any of these actresses would certainly be incredible in the role, but the possibility of Cara Delevingne Instagrams (opens in new tab) with OPRAH? Mind-blowing.

Production for the film starts in April, with the film slated to come out August 5, 2016.
