A few weeks back Jessica Simpson was talking about doing a movie called Blonde Ambition with Luke Wilson. But a rep for Wilson said that the project was still in the works and a source close to the actor said “Luke Wilson will never do a movie with Jessica Simpson.” But now it seems he has changed his mind. MTV reports that Luke has joined the cast of the film, which is a remake of Working Girl and originally starred Harrison Ford and Melanie Griffith. Here's more:
Luke Wilson has joined Jessica Simpson as part of the cast of "Blonde Ambition," a loose remake of the 1988 Melanie Griffith classic "Working Girl." "It's going to be Jessica Simpson's next film," said producer (and former "Malcolm in the Middle" star) Justin Berfield. "It's basically about a young woman's journey into the corporate empire. She starts at the bottom and works her way to the top." The flick will offer the singer/actress her first leading role, as she steps into a character that landed Griffith an Oscar nomination for Best Actress. "The second we got the script, we just knew we had to go to her first, and fortunately she fell in love with the script as well," Berfield remembered. Andy Dick is in discussions to play an "evil" secretary. "Blonde Ambition" begins filming November 27 in Shreveport, Louisiana, and is aiming for a summer release.
I guess that's why they say never say never. I wonder what made Luke change his mind. It couldn't have these pics. Cheer up Jess, you've finally got yourself a lead role! What's next? An Oscar nom like Melanie? For more of Jess looking grumpy and tired just read more
