X-tina coming soon to a theater near you **UPDATE**

Christina Aguilera making big screen debut in 'Burlesque'

Move over Beyonce.

Four-time Grammy winner Christina Aguilera is horning in on the big-screen action.

Variety reports that Aguilera will make her screen debut in "Burlesque," a contemporary musical directed by (brother of Pussycat Dolls creator Robin Antin) and written with her in mind.

And guess who's producing? Screen Gems, which just brought us Beyonce in the hit thriller, "Obsessed."

Aguilera will play an ambitious small town girl with a big voice who finds love and happiness in a Los Angeles burlesque club that calls to mind Bob Fosse's "Cabaret."

No word on whether they'll use her music, but why wouldn't they? The film begins shooting later this year after her next album and tour.


This should be interesting. nod

**THIS JUST IN**

Entertainment Weekly reports that Cher is in talks to star alongside Christina Aguilera in the Screen Gems' movie musical Burlesque.

The Oscar winning singer/actress would be playing the owner of the burlesque club where Christina Aguilera works.

Christina Aguilera is set to make her big screen debut with "Burlesque", which will be directed by Steve Antin, the brother of Pussycat Dolls founder Robin Antin. Antin wrote the script which was revised by "Erin Brockovich" writer Susannah Grant, with Aguilera in mind. To read the EW report click here.

The movie is a contemporary musical about "an ambitious smalltown girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club." Cher's character, sources told EW, will serve as Aguilera's mentor in the film.

Aguilera has won four Grammy Awards, a Latin Grammy and has sold more than 25 million albums, but she has never starred in a motion picture. The singer did lend her voice to Dreamwork's animated film "Shark Tale."

Cher, The indestructible diva, is currently starring in a song-and-dance concert spectacle starting at the 4,100-seat Colosseum in Las Vegas Caesars Palace. Cher, 61, presents a "visually unbelievable" hit parade that entails elaborate choreography, complex staging, eye-popping costumes, 14 dancers and four aerialists. Bob Mackie designed all the costumes, Cher will have an army of dancers and according to the Diva herself.. "Creatively, we're doing something that's never been done with sets," she said of the production


This should be VERY interesting. nod

sad She did say that some years ago, but alas she has seemed to have reconsidered. Are you excited about a new album and tour this year?

Very eek

After hearing "Keeps Gettin' Better" and "Falling in Love Again" I was like eek I hope the album is as good as those songs. I just hope to not hear any songs about how she's 'still dirrty' or about her mother.
