Make that another pop singer who will be transitioning over to the silver screen. Considering that I like looking at Christina Aguilera, I personally have nothing against the move.

And neither does Screen Gems, who have cast the singer to play a title role in Burlesque.

Christina Aguilera for Burlesque

As you might have guessed, Burlesque is a musical. Directed by Steven Antin off a script he wrote with scribe Susannah Grant, Burlesque will have Aguilera play an ambitious smalltown girl with a big voice who finds love, family and success in a Los Angeles neo-burlesque club that appears to be right out of Bob Fosse's "Cabaret."

Though Christina Aguilera has never appeared in a film, Screen Gems considered the film to be a starring vehicle just for her.

"I couldn't be more excited, as this was a project written with her in mind," Screen Gems topper Clint Culpepper said.
