They say the best things come in pairs, and there's no better pairing than Xavier Dolan and i-D cover star Adele. Not only did Xavier direct the singer's iconic video for Hello, which broke all records for "most viewed" video in the world, the dynamic duo will be teaming up once more for the French-Canadian filmmaker's first ever English-language drama, The Death of John F. Donovan, according to Screen Daily. 

The news comes after Adele told Kiss FM, "I'm sure I'll get some flak for this, but I actually would like to act after working with Xavier. I would be in a film for him, definitely." Dolan's new flick will star Jessica Chastain, Susan Sarandon and Kathy Bates; it centers around an American movie star whose career crumbles due to a relationship with an 11-year-old boy. Will Adele contribute a Bond-esque theme song?
