Christina Aguilera to Star in Burlesque Movie Musical

It seems just right that Christina Aguilera will make her feature film debut (OK, live-action debut, if we're counting Shark Tale) in a movie musical titled Burlesque. It sounds like she'll be able to easily take on this role:

Aguilera will play an ambitious small-town girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club that appears to be right out of Bob Fosse's Cabaret.

Steven Antin, an actor who played Andy's preppy boyfriend Troy Perkins in Goonies, is directing the project.

The "small-town girl making it her own way in a big, bad city" angle seems a little tired, but I am excited to see how this neo-burlesque club turns out. And apparently the movie was written with Aguilera in mind, so I could see this being totally entertaining.

This sounds like Mariah Carey's "Glitter" with full frontal. Great.

Something about this screams "direct to video"

well i think that it'll be interesting to see how talented she is and i guess that it's only fair that she's branching out into movies seeing as how soo many others have already done that.

Hum i think with this story, it only depends on who is directing... It can be really bad as it can be pretty good i think ^^ I'm curious ! But i think she is doing this just to be in a movie and to sing (like brit did) and not so much for the role (not like Beyoncé on her last movie)

She seems well cast especially since she did grow up in a "real" small town in western PA.

It will probably be crappy, but not as craptastic as Showgirls.
