Stanley Tucci Goes "Burlesque" with Cher and Christina Aguilera 


This is a movie we've been following closely since May (See Cher Joins Christina Aguilera in Musical "Burlesque" and Christina Aguilera to Star in Titillating Musical "Burlesque"). Why? Because it's being called "Showgirls" the Musical starring Cher and Christina Aguilera.

But I'm sure it's not going to be as campy as "Showgirls" gosh darn it!

Now, Stanley Tucci is joining Cher and Christina Aguilera in the film to be directed by Steve Antin.

Antin also wrote the script which was polished by Susannah Grant ("Erin Brockovich"! See? Not campy).

Aguilera will play an ambitious small town Iowa girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles burlesque club. Cher will play Tess, a former dancer who takes the small town girl under her wing. Tucci will star as the manager of the club and the best friend of Tess. And they will all sing and dance! :happy

Shooting begins Nov. 9 with a release date set for Thanksgiving next year.
