Lady Gaga is coming to the big screen, little monsters. The pop star announced Thursday that she'll make her feature film debut courtesy director Robert Rodriguez.

Rodriguez dropped the news first, tweeting out Gaga's character poster from "Machete Kills," a sequel to 2010's "Machete"starring Danny Trejo, Robert De Niro and Lindsay Lohan. 

"I just finished working with @LadyGaga on @MacheteKills , she kicked so much ass! Holy Smokes. Blown away!" he wrote, attaching a photo of Gaga in the role of La Chameleon (above).

Rocking a wolf stole with the head attached, impressive jewels and a smoking gun, Gaga looks right at home vamping it up for the "Desperado" filmmaker. 

"Yes its true, I will be making my debut as an actress ln the amazing Machete Kills," the Lady tweeted, adding how excited she was and that "filming was insane." 

Gaga has long been open about her desire to act. In December, she told  Ellen DeGeneres about her fantasy project.

"My dream would be to be in a Woody Allen movie," she said.

The Ministry thinks "Kills" is a pretty decent start. The franchise has an exploitative, B-movie DNA, the over-the-topness of which will be like coming home for the elaborate performer. 

The film also costars Jessica Alba, Amber Heard, Michelle Rodriguez, Mel Gibson, Oscar nominee Demián Bichir, Vanessa Hudgens andCuba Gooding Jr.
