Young Money star Nicki Minaj is reportedly on the verge of signing on to appear in an upcoming revenge comedy flick called The Other Woman.
According to reports, Minaj would join the likes of Hollywood royalty like Cameron Diaz and supermodel Kate Upton.
Nicki Minaj is in final negotiations to make her live-action movie debut, joining the cast of Fox’s revenge comedy The Other Woman. Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kate Upton are on the roll call. Nick Cassavetes is directing the comedy, which centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau. (The Hollywood Reporter)
Details on what role Minaj would play have also sprouted online.

Minaj will play Diaz’s opinionated assistant — a woman on her third marriage — at a law firm.

Earlier this month, Nicki hinted at a possible movie being in the works.
“I may be working on something right now. I can’t really say too much about it, but I definitely have the acting bug,” Nicki told MTV News correspondent Christina Garibaldi from a Burbank, California, recording studio, right after the premiere of her “High School” music video. “That was my first love, so you just never know.” (MTV)
Back in February, Minaj revealed she and her agent were fielding a few movie scripts.
Nicki Minaj has set her sights on the big screen. She told Page Six on Oscar night, “I would love to act, it just has to be the right project, the right movie.” “Nothing stereotypical about a singer,” the rapper and “American Idol” judge said. “I have an agent, and we are looking at a couple of scripts, so we’ll see.” (New York Post)
