Cher—Queen of Twitter, living definition of the word "icon," and owner of good hair—is making her way back to the small screen...by way of a Lifetime movie. So yes, your dreams are, in fact, becoming a reality.

The Oscar winner (that's right, she won an Oscar) will star in Flint (opens in new tab), a film based on the Flint water crisis/contamination in Michigan (opens in new tab). Not too much is known about Cher's role, but she'll be playing a Flint dweller whose family is "impacted by the water crisis." (FYI, Cher was very actively involved in helping residents of Flint, and reportedly donated water to the community.)

One might be be inclined to ponder Cher's choice to star in a Lifetime movie, but the network has actually been delivering some solid work recently—including UnREAL and War & Peace. And considering Cher was nominated for a Golden Globe the last time she starred in a TV movie (HBO's If These Walls Could Talk), we should expect big things. Big, like Cher's all-caps tweets.
