Is this Little Mix gal going to be Jasmine in the Aladdin remake?!

If the rumours are true, we couldn't think of a better person to play Jasmine in the new Aladdin remake.

Despite having little acting experience, Jade Thirlwall of Little Mix fame is apparently in talks to take on the role of the princess.

According to The Sun, Jade is in the line up of possible people to play the character, and as she is of Yemini and Egyptian descent, her fans believe she would qualify ethically to play the Arab beauty.

A source told the publication: "Jasmine is Jade’s perfect role, so she’s delighted to have got this far in the process.

"The talks have been going on for some time now," the insider said.

“And the longer they go on, the better her chances are looking. All of the girls have their fingers crossed for her, as they always support each other."

Since April, there has been an open call for actors between the ages of 18-25 for the roles of both Aladdin and Jasmine.

Shooting for the film begins this summer and will last up to six months, which would mean a big commitment for Jade.
