Destiny's Child member Kelly Rowland will share screen time with a pair of Hollywood horror kingpins in her big-screen debut. The pop star has joined the cast of New Line Cinema's "Freddy vs. Jason," which teams up legendary evildoers Freddy Krueger of "A Nightmare on Elm Street" fame and Jason Vorhees of the "Friday the 13th" franchise.

Rowland will play one of a group of friends who team up to spark a battle between Krueger and Vorhees. She joins previously announced cast members Brad Renfro and Robert Englund in the film, which is being directed by Ronny Yu and will start shooting Sept. 9 in Vancouver.

Rowland has appeared on such television series as "The Hughleys" and "Smart Guy." She is the second member of Destiny's Child to work with New Line, as Beyonce Knowles is currently onscreen as Foxxy Cleopatra in the smash summer comedy "Austin Powers in Goldmember."

Rowland, who guests on rapper Nelly's "Dilemma," which is No. 1 on Billboard's Hot 100, is also working on her first solo album.
