Dionne Warwick made a huge announcement during the Cannes Film Festival on May 12. Warwick has announced that a biopic about her early career, called “My Life, As I See It” is set to film this fall.

Destiny’s Child alum, LeToya Luckett has signed on to star as Warwick in the film, posting on her Instagram:

“To God be the glory! ?? Overjoyed & honored,” she wrote. “Thank you #DionneWarwick.”

Warwick also told reporters that Lady Gaga would portray her “nemesis” Cilla Black in the movie, but a rep for Gaga has denied that the pop singer is involved, even though her name reportedly appeared in posters and a press release from PR agency Rogers & Cowan.

Danny Glover has signed on to portray Dionne’s father, Mansel Warwick, while Olympia Dukakis will play Dionne’s mentor, Marlene Dietrich.

To God be the glory! ?? Overjoyed & honored! Thank you #DionneWarwick
