RnB Queen, Beyoncè has apparently decided to take on the film industry in a tricky new role. 

Not satisfied with being a triple threat that is a singer, dancer, actress - Beyoncè has reportedly decided to try her hand at screenwriting. 

Bey is apparently penning a script based on the true story of South African slave Saartjie Baartman. 

During the 1800s, Baartman was sold to a Scottish doctor who forced her to exhibit her body at freak shows due to her uniquely large bottom, before taking her master to court to fight for her freedom. Baartman was believed to be just 25-years-old when she died. 

It is said Beyoncè is extremely passionate about Saartjie’s story and is currently researching everything she can find to give her story justice. 

There are also rumours Beyoncè has hired a team of acting coaches and experienced screenwriters to assist her. An insider reportedly told The Sun

“Beyonce is desperate to be taken seriously as an actress… she still feels her breakthrough role is yet to come… Winning an Academy Award would mean everything to her.”

Bey has previously starred in Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Pink Panther and Dreamgirls.
