Aguilera on film
Christina Aguilera is going to make her big screen debut, something I thought would have happened long before now, after all she has a stunning voice on her and she can look like an absolute Hollywood legend, oh and she's damn sexy too.
All the ingredients are there and it's a wonder she hasn't been cast in something already, but now she's set to appear in a contemporary musical which follows a similar path to some recognisable musicals and stories before.
Christina Aguilera will be appearing in a musical called Burlesque, written and directed by Steven Antin, although Variety tell us that Susannah Grant who wrote Erin Brokovich has revised the script. Handily, Antin produced some of the Pussycat Dolls reality shows.
She's set to play an ambitious small town girl who is trying to make her name with her amazing voice. On the way she finds love, family and a hugely successful beginning in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club.
Well that's the story line, and it appears that the script was written almost specifically for her. Her voice has been used in Shark Tale, but this will mark her first time in front of the camera outside of her music videos, at least she'll be doing a lot of singing too.
I actually look forward to this and I do hope that she turns out to be a good actress, after all she's an immense singer, but like all singers and good songs, it's all in the writing.
