Two of Tinseltown’s biggest stars are reportedly teaming up for a new project.

Beyoncé and Zendaya are in talks to remake Douglas Sirk’s classic 1959 melodrama “Imitation of Life,” according to The Sun.

The pop queen, 40, and the “Spider-Man” star, 25, worked together six years ago on a music video, and are allegedly eager to join forces once more.

“Imitation of Life” which is based on the best-selling novel by Fannie Hurst, revolves around a white woman who takes in an African-American widow and her daughter, Sarah Jane, whose fair skin allows her to pass as white.

Beyoncé is reportedly interested in producing the flick.

Of the experience, Zendaya gushed at the time: “It was literally nuts because anybody who knows me knows that I’ve been obsessed with Beyoncé since birth, been to every single that she’s ever had.”

“It’s a true obsession. It was an honor and I freaked out,” she added.
