Christina Aguilera will make her big screen debut for Screen Gems in Burlesque, a contemporary musical that Steven Antin will direct, reports Variety. Antin wrote a script that was revised by Erin Brockovich screenwriter Susannah Grant.
Aguilera will play an ambitious smalltown girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club.
Donald De Line will produce. The film will shoot late this year.
While Aguilera has never starred in a film, she did lent her voice to the animated Shark Tale.
