The pop sensation takes to the big screen again...

BEYONCE has been signed up to star as the love interest in the US version of ‘THE PINK PANTHER’ movie.

The star – who made her big screen debut in 2002’s ‘Austin Powers: Goldmember’ – will play a pop star named Xania.

The role of Inspector Jacques Clouseau will be taken by comedian Steve Martin in what is reported to be the prequel to the 1963 ‘Pink Panther’ original starring Peter Sellers.

Beyonce’s character becomes a suspect in the film when her boyfriend, the owner of the Pink Panther diamond, is found dead with his jewel missing.

Filming for the Shawn Levy-directed movie will begin in New York and Paris in May, reports MTV News.
