Little Mix are so brilliant at everything they turn their hand to, aren't they? As if touring the actual entire planet and bringing all the sass with their new single "Power" wasn't enough; it looks like Jade Thirlwall might be making her big screen debut soon.

Maybe. Potentially. Quite possibly.

So rumor has it Jade could be set to play Jasmine in Guy Ritchie's live action remake of Disney's Aladdin, something Jade was asked about over the weekend and absolutely did not deny. GAH.

Speaking to ODE at Capital FM's Summertime Ball, Jade said: "I can't confirm or deny that, but the group always comes first whatever happens."

Meanwhile an inside told The Sun: "Jasmine is Jade’s perfect role, so she’s delighted to have got this far in the process. The talks have been going on for some time now.

"And the longer they go on, the better her chances are looking. All of the girls have their fingers crossed for her, as they always support each other. But they also know that it would be a huge commitment.

"Jade would need to film for months, and that’s before promotion for the movie began."

This all comes as it's rumored Tom Hardy could also be joining the cast as Jafar. Speaking to The Sun, a source-type said: "Guy is a huge fan of Tom’s work and securing him would be a major coup.

"There have been conversations and, although nothing is set in stone and things are subject to change, he’s certainly one of Guy’s favored choices. It just depends on schedules and whether he’ll be able to sign up."
