She'll film the flick later this year
Christina Aguilera is set to take on her first movie role – in a contemporary musical.
The singer has been offered a major part in the film called ‘Burlesque’ in which she will play a small town girl who “finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club”, according to Variety.
The movie was written with Aguilera in mind, and is being made by the same company behind Beyonce‘s Number One movie ‘Obsessed’ which took in $28.5 million in its opening weekend in April.
‘Burlesque’ will begin shooting later this year.
