American Idol judge and pop star Nicki Minaj will make her live-action movie debut in the 20th Century Fox comedy The Other Woman.

Cameron Diaz stars as a mistress who realizes that her married boyfriend (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is seeing yet another woman on the side. She teams up with her beau's wife (Leslie Mann) to get revenge. Kate Upton stars as the title character. Nicki Minaj is playing Cameron Diaz's outspoken assistant, who is on her third marriage.

Nick Cassavetes is directing from a screenplay by Melissa Stack, with Julie Yorn producing. Production is scheduled to begin this summer in New York City.

Aside from her duties as the new judge on American Idol, Nicki Minaj lent her voice to the animated comedy Ice Age: Continental Drift last year.
