Alanis Morissette lands movie role

Canadian singer will star in 'Radio Free Albemuth'

Alanis Morrisette has been confirmed to star in a semi-autobiographical movie of sci-fi writer Philip K. Dick.

The singer will play the role of Sylvia, a woman who appears in a vision of a record label worker, played by Jonathan Scarfe.

She then appears in his life for real as a woman who becomes his secretary, reports Reuters.

The movie, entitled ‘Radio Free Albemuth’ is based on the novel of the same name by Dick. The author experienced visions in the 70s which inspired the story.

Morrisette’s previous forays into acting saw her appear in ’Sex & The City’ and ’Nip/Tuck.
