After a wildly successful 2016 with Hidden Figures and Moonlight, Janelle Monae is adding a new project to her reel.

According to the The Hollywood Reporter, the Grammy-nominated recording artist will star alongside the likes of Steve Carrell and Leslie Mann in an upcoming film written and created by Robert Zemeckis, the famed director known for the Back to the Future film series and Forrest Gump.

The untitled film is said to be based off of the 2010 documentary Marwencol, which tells the story of a New York man who copes with a violent assault by building a miniature WWII-era village in his backyard.

There has yet to be anymore information divulged when it comes to a release date, but we’re cheering on Monae for all of her handwork. We see you girl.
