Janelle Monae is headed back to the big screen. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Primetime singer is set to join actor Steve Carell in the upcoming Robert Zemeckis film Marwenkol. The movie is reportedly based on a 2010 documentary about Mark Hogancamp, a photographer who builds a miniature town in his backyard after recovering from an attack that left him in a coma.

Janelle signed with UTA for worldwide representation back in 2015 and has been focusing on her acting career ever since. Her previous credits include Hidden Figures and Moonlight, both Oscar nominees at this year’s Academy Awards.

Fans hoping janelle will return to music will have to wait a bit longer, as in addition to Marwenkol, the brown skin beauty is rumored to be appearing in several episode of Luke Cage when it returns for its sophomore season later this year.
