The cast for the first live-action Pokémon movie, Detective Pikachu, now includes U.K. singer and actress Rita Ora.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ora has joined the growing cast of Legendary Pictures’ Pokémon film. However, much like the recent additions to the talent pool—Bill Nighy and Chris Geere—it hasn’t been confirmed who she will play.

Along with Ryan Reynolds as the voice of the titular Pikachu, Ora will also join Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom‘s Justice Smith, Big Little Lies‘ Kathryn Newton, The Bad Batch‘s Suki Waterhouse, and Godzilla‘s Ken Watanabe.

Ora is known for her work on screen and the music charts. She currently appears in the final Fifty Shades film, Fifty Shades Freed, and in 2016, took over for Tyra Banks as host of America’s Next Top Model after the series moved from the CW to VH1. In the music world, Ora first made waves in 2012 when she was featured on DJ Fresh’s “Hot Right Now,” and in 2014, collaborated with Iggy Azalea for “Black Widow.”

Production for Detective Pikachu is currently underway, with Goosebumps‘ Rob Letterman directing. While a majority of the characters and story details are still under wraps, we know it’s based on the Nintendo 3DS game Detective Pikachu, which follows a young teen who needs Pikachu’s help to find his missing father. Nintendo recently announced the 3DS title would be arriving in the West on March 23rd, with a huge new amiibo as part of the deal.

The Detective Pikachu film is set to hit theaters on Friday, May 10th.
