Get your best side-eye ready: Kim Kardashian has just revealed that she'll be starring in Tyler Perry's new film.

"Big news!! I'm co-starring in Tyler Perry's new movie!" the reality star tweeted last night.

Perry is set to begin shooting The Marriage Counselor next Wednesday, October 26. Based on his stage play of the same name, the Lionsgate film will tell the story of Judith, an Ivy League-educated couples' counselor who's so bored with her own marriage that she ends up having an affair with a smooth-talking client. Jurnee Smollett will play the title role, while Kardashian will play Ava, a co-worker who hooks Judith up with a confidence-boosting makeover as she tries to work through her issues.

Kardashian has previously appeared in the films Deep in the Valley and Disaster Movie.
