Oprah Winfrey may be returning to the big screen.

Fourteen years after appearing in Beloved, the former talk show queen has reportedly been approached about appearing in The Butler.

The film, which would be directed by Precious helmer Lee Daniels, would feature Winfrey as the wife of a black butler who works in the White House.

The project is based on the true story of former butler Eugene Allen, who served eight presidents, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Winfrey, who lent her voice to 2009′s animated The Princess and The Frog, previously worked with Daniels as an executive producer on Precious.
