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.
