Singer Christina Aguilera‘s first lead movie role already heralded the big-screen return of Cher. Now Aguilera has a rival.
“Couples Retreat” star Kristen Bell will co-star in “Burlesque” as Aguilera’s nemesis, according to The Hollywood Reporter. She’ll play a singer at a nightclub owned by Cher; when Aguilera’s character arrives, Bell’s Nikki finds her headliner status threatened.
“Burlesque” marks Aguilera’s first starring role on film, as well as the first live-action movie role for Cher since 1999.
Filming begins in November with a tentative November 2010 release date.
