While Lady Gaga is certainly no stranger to theatrics, now Mother Monster is taking her talents to the big screen.

Robert Rodriguez ("Sin City") has cast the singer in his upcoming action flick, "Machete Kills." A sequel to 2010's "Machete," the film boasts a laundry list of celebs, including Danny Trejo, Jessica Alba, Michelle Rodrigue, Vanessa Hudgens, Mel Gibson, Demian Bichir, Alexa Vega, Zoe Saldana, Amber Heard and Charlie Sheen.

The movie follows its titular lead (Trejo), a U.S. government recruit, as he attempts to stop an arms dealer from launching a missile into outer space.

While Gaga is flanked by some some serious star power, the singer is -- as always -- in the spotlight. Mother Monster tweeted her very own noir-style character poster on Thursday.

"Machete Kills" will hit theaters sometime in 2013. Check out Gaga's poster below!
