Lady Gaga is coming to a theater near you.

The superstar singer will make her silver screen debut in writer-director Robert Rodriguez's highly anticipated action  flick, Machete Kills.

"I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills," Rodriguez tweeted on Thursday, sharing a poster that reads, "Lady Gaga as La Chameleon."

"She kicked SO MUCH ASS!" he continued. "Holy Smokes. Blown away!"

And Mother Monster confirmed the cinema news to her 27 million-plus Twitter followers. “Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing MACHETE KILLS BY @RODRIGUEZ IM SO EXCITED!!! AH! Filming was insane.”

Who will Gaga be acting alongside?

Gaga joins an impressively star-studded cast including Mel Gibson, Jessica Alba, Charlie Sheen, Amber Heard, Zoe Saldana, Danny Trejo, Sofia Vergara and Vanessa Hudgens.

Machete Kills is a sequel to Rodriguez's 2010 Machete. In Rodriguez's second installment of the planned trilogy, Machete is being recruited by the U.S. government to stop a Mexican cartel leader and an arms dealer who has launched a space-bound terror weapon. The film is slated to open in 2013.

Apart from her big-screen debut news, Lady Gaga also lit up the web with photos of her private life. The pop star shared a intimate snap with her fans on Thursday, in which she bares all while curled up in an arm chair."Resting after BARNEY'S GAGA WORKSHOP OPENING IN NY," she wrote.

And Gaga even gave the world a peek into her recent Chateau Marmont slumber party with Lindsay Lohan. In one shot, the bleary-eyed ladies sandwich celebrity photographer Ellen von Unwerth. In others, a tiara-wearing Lohan lights up a cigarette and strikes a saucy pose in a fur coat.
