Sky Ferreira has announced she has been cast in a new film from director Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs The World, Shaun Of The Dead).
The singer will appear in Baby Driver alongside the likes of Jamie Foxx, Jon Hamm, Lily James and Kevin Spacey. The film is scheduled for release in 2017.
She also revealed she will feature in emerging director Jessica Manafort’s film Rosy, while The Trust, another movie she appears in alongside Nicolas Cage, will premiere at South By Southwest festival in Austin, Texas today (March 13).
Writing on her Instagram page, Ferreira said: “It just got announced that I’m going to be in Baby Driver directed by @edgar_wright & Rosy directed by Jess Manafort. The Trust with Nicolas Cage & @electrice will premiere tomorrow at SXSW. So yeah. Lots going on this week.”
As Pitchfork reports, Ferreira also appears in Elvis & Nixon, which is due out in April, and had a part in Eli Roth’s The Green Inferno last year.
In February, Ferreira confirmed that her new album, ‘Masochism’, will be released in the summer, though work had not been completed at the time. Ariel Rechtshaid (Adele, Beyoncé) is returning as producer alongside executive producer Mike Dean (Kanye West) and Kendrick Lamar producer Rahki.
Speaking about the album title, Ferreira says that it was inspired by a dark period on the road. “I started writing the lyrics two years ago when I was touring, and that’s when the name came to me,” she says. “The way I look at it, it’s about going from one thing to another. I’ve learned a lot about myself and my own self-value. Before, in order to feel good about anything there had to be some kind of struggle, a painful way to get to it, otherwise I felt I didn’t really deserve it. Which is a really fucked up way of thinking.”
