Keys on board for Disney flick
However, now the multi-talented 26-year-old is looking to build on her already blossoming career in films.
Following roles as an assassin alongside Andy Garcia, Ben Affleck and Jason Bateman in Smokin Aces and her part as Lynette in The Nanny Diaries, Ms Keys has now signed a multiyear first-look production deal with Disney.
The first Disney project that Keys will produce and star in will be the remake of 1958's Bell, Book and Candle where the New Yorker will play the role of the witch, popularised by Kim Novak in the original.
What remains to be seen is who will be drafted in to fill the other parts, originally played by screen legends James Stewart, Jack Lemmon, Ernie Kovacs and Elsa Lanchester.
