If this is an April Fools joke it’s a late one, and it’s sucked in the Hollywood trade paper Variety.
Check out this tweet from Bryan Singer:

I’m certainly sceptical myself, but let me remind you that Gaga will be appearing in Machete Kills.
I’ll update this story if we find confirmation or if Singer confesses. For now… take it for what it is. An announcement. On April 1st.
And for added value, because this story might just need a shot of that, here’s an image Singer tweeted previously. These are what he called “Magneto toys.”
UPDATE: Variety have now held their hands up to having been April Fooled. They don’t say how they know that Singer is fibbing. I guess they just feel a bit embarrassed and want to distance themselves.
SECOND UPDATE: Gaga’s reps are denying that she’s involved in the film, so that’s that.
