After earning an Academy Award nomination for her portrayal of aspiring singer Ally in Oscar-winning drama A Star is Born (she also won one for Best Original Song for 'Shallow'), Lady Gaga has lined up her next acting role.

The 'Rain on Me' hitmaker is set to star opposite Brad Pitt in upcoming action thriller Bullet Train, according to Collider.

The movie centres on a group of assassins who find out that each of their missions have something in common while travelling on a fast-moving train in Tokyo.

Details on her character remain under wraps for now, though it's reported Gaga has signed on for a supporting role rather than a lead.
