Congrats are in order!

Derry Girls star Saoirse-Monica Jackson has landed a role in upcoming DC superhero movie The Flash.

Jackson, who plays Erin Quinn on the hit show, will star alongside Ezra, Ben Affleck and Michael Keaton in the new flick.

The comic book adaption based on superhero The Flash, who uses his superpower speed to save the world, is due out in November 2022.

It is not yet known what role the Derry native will play in the film.

Variety also confirmed that Ian Loh and Rudy Mancusco would be joining the already stacked cast.

This is the first standalone Flash film, following the superhero's appearances in Justice League and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Rest assured though Derry Girls fans, Erin isn't going anywhere - Jackson will star in the upcoming third season of the show when filming resumes later this year.
