(Newser) – Not content with entrancing Bill O'Reilly, Lady Gaga is planning her next pop-culture triumph: a blockbuster movie. "Gaga wants to emulate what Michael Jackson did during the 80s. You can already see that with her music videos," a source tells the UK tabloid News of the World. "Every one of them is a mini event. So it's only logical she moves that on to the big screen."

Gaga's envisioning a blend of Jackson's 1988 music video/short film compilation Moonwalker and Beyoncé's star turn in Dreamgirls. "She's very excited about a movie, but she wants to do it right," says another source. "She wants to work with the best people in the business." Bryan Singer, who directed The Usual Suspects and X-Men, is being considered for the project. For more on Gaga, who returned to Lollapalooza in style Friday night, click here.
