Cara Delevingne Will Play a Time-Traveler in New Film 'Valerian,' Because That's Basically the Only Thing She Hasn't Done Yet

No really, does she sleep?

Cara Delevingne is not playing around when it comes to auditions—she's starring in Paper Towns (opens in new tab)PanSuicide Squad, and now she's booked yet another film: Valerian. (Oh, you know, and she has that whole modeling thing.)

According to Variety (opens in new tab), the actress/model/non-sleeper has signed on for the graphic novel film adaptation, which is set in the 28th century after humans discover time travel. She'll play Laureline, sidekick to Valerian (played by Dane DeHaan)—both space agents, if you will. The story was created by Pierre Christin and Jean-Claude Mezieres in 1967, with the final story published in 2010. It's been translated into 21 languages and has sold over 10 million copies, so this is a pretty safe bet in the blockbuster department.

The film will premiere in July of 2017. Better grab a quick nap while you can, Delevingne.
