She is already the queen of the catwalk and now supermodel Cara Delevingne has firmly set her sights on conquering Hollywood.

The 22-year-old beauty has reportedly been lined up to play the female lead in the new Zoolander movie in her quest to become an actress.

According to The Sun, Ben Stiller is in talks with the British star to take on the coveted role and thinks she would be ideal for the sequel to his 2001 fashion comedy blockbuster.

"Ben and producers want a big-name model for the film and they need to be jokers and full of natural comedy," an insider said.

"They are still working out what the exact role will be but it's likely to include a lot of goofing around."

Delevingne, who has fronted campaigns for designers including Burberry and DKNY, would find it easy to recreate the now infamous 'Blue Steel' pose devised by Stiller in the original Zoolander.

The exaggerated pose has been emulated millions of times by fans across the globe.

Meanwhile Delevingne has been busy with a few new projects, including creating a collection of handbags for Mulberry, filming her part in the upcoming fantasy film Pan and launching her music career with the help of 80's pop star Sinitta.

"It's a top-secret project and it's true that I'm helping her as a mentor," Sinitta previously told the Evening Standard.

"It's about finding people who have natural passion," she explained, "and doing what Simon [Cowell] did with me: help them focus their creativity and ideas in a positive direction and give them an outlet."
