Nicki Minaj is in final negotiations to make her live-action movie debut, joining the cast of Fox’s revenge comedy The Other Woman.

Cameron Diaz, Leslie Mann, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kate Upton are on the roll call.  

Nick Cassavetes is directing the comedy, which centers on a woman (Diaz) who finds out that she is “the other woman” in an affair. She teams up with the wife (Mann) to get revenge on the cheating cad of a husband, being played by Nikolaj Coster-Waldau.

Minaj will play Diaz's opinionated assistant -- a woman on her third marriage -- at a law firm.

The singer currently appears on American Idol as one of the judges and has voiced a character in Fox’s Ice Age: Continental Drift.

Julie Yorn is producing the project, which was written by Melissa Stack and will shoot in late spring/early summer in New York.

Minaj is repped by Gee Roberson and Brian Sher.
