Cher Joins Aguilera In “Burlesque”

Cher will join Christina Aguilera in the contemporary musical “Burlesque” for Screen Gems says Variety.

Aguilera plays an ambitious small-town Iowa girl with a big voice who comes of age in a neo-burlesque club on Sunset Boulevard that’s run by Tess (Cher), a former dancer who struggles to keep the club open and gives the young girl a chance to shine.

Steven Antin direct from his own script on which Susannah Grant did a rewrite. Shooting begins in November.
