We're not even six months into the year, but "Real Housewives of New York" fans might agree 2022 belongs to Leah McSweeney!

McSweeney, who joined the cast of the hit Bravo show in 2020, announced she had been cast in "The Kill Room," a film written by Jonathan Jacobson and directed by Nicol Paone, in an Instagram post yesterday.

The upcoming film already has a number of star-studded names attached to its cast.

According to Deadline, Uma Thurman, Samuel L. Jackson, and Thurman's daughter Maya Hawke are only a sample of actors who will be in the film alongside McSweeney.

In a role that sounds perfectly curated for McSweeney, she "will play Alisha, a V.I.P. on the arts' scene."

The outlet detailed the film will focus on the shenanigans that Joe Manganiello's hitman character named Reggie finds himself in, as a result of a money laundering scheme within the art world, leading Reggie to have to deal with the consequences of his actions and the overnight fame he experiences.

What About A Possible 'RHONY' Return?

Half of "The Kill Room" will be filmed in a location near and dear to McSweeney's heart, New York!

The rest of the film will be shot in New Jersey.

McSweeney being cast in the film may or may not affect the possibility of McSweeney returning for 'RHONY's' upcoming season. As of this writing, she has not been officially confirmed to return.

The Blast reported McSweeney's thoughts on whether she would be asked to return to the show.

"I have to see if they offer me to go back, I have to see who's on it and which show it is, and whatever..." she explained in an interview with the "We Should Talk" podcast, via People Magazine, "you know I can't think the what if."

She had also revealed what she believed the potential outcome would be regarding her 'RHONY' fate.

"I think I'm not coming back." she began in her interview, "It's just the better way to think about it."

Regardless of whether she will be back to join her 'RHONY' castmates for another season, there are no hard feelings about her time spent on the show alongside some of the biggest names in 'Housewives' history, including Luann De Lesseps and Ramona Singer.

"I would never talk negatively and come from a bad- ill intended place..." she began in her interview with the "In The Know" podcast where she was promoting her recently released memoir, "Chaos Theory."

"First of all it's my memoir, it represents me and who I am. And I'm just like, in a good place.

If I was not in a good place mentally, emotionally, spiritually, maybe I would have dragged all of them or something. I don't know. But, like, I want to keep it positive... I want to keep it positive. And also, it's true, even if I like, haven't talked to some of the women, or whatever, I can still have positive things to say about them, and not like other parts about them," she also said in the interview.

With or without a return to the "Real Housewives Of New York" being in the cards for Leah McSweeney, her career is certainly keeping positive momentum!
