The singer may make a cameo appearance in the upcoming movie - starring Will Smith and Josh Brolin as a young Tommy Lee Jones - as Jemaine Clement's girlfriend, while other stars including Gemma Arterton and Sharlto Copley are negotiating for parts in the film.
The movie - which will see Will Smith's character Agent Jay sent back to 1969 to team up with a younger version of Tommy Lee's Agent Kay - would see Arterton play a 60s secretary while 'A-Team' star Copley is set to play a "fast talking Yoda-type alien", Pajiba reports.
Emma Thomspon has already been cast in the movie, which begins shooting in November and runs through to February 2011.
The Barry Sonnenfeld-directed movie is expected for release in 2012.
