A full regiment of talent is set to join Jessica Simpson in the comedy “Major Movie Star” for Nu Image/Millennium Films reports Reuters.
Vivica A. Fox, Steve Guttenberg, Ryan Sypek, Cheri Oteri, Olesya Rulin, Keiko Agena, Jill Marie Jones, Aimee Garcia and Gary Grubbs have all been cast in the Steve Miner directed production.
The story follows Megan (Simpson), a somewhat clueless movie star who impulsively enlists in the U.S. Army Reserve after discovering her boyfriend is gay and her cousin/accountant has stolen all her money.
Fox will play Sgt. Louisa Morley, an intimidating training officer who goes hard on Megan. Guttenberg will play the controlling agent Sidney Green, furious at her for enlisting and at Gen. Greer (Grubbs) for keeping her there.
Sypek will play the handsome officer Megan falls for, Sgt. Mills Evans. Oteri will play Pvt. Jeter, the most gung-ho recruit on the base and Megan’s arch-nemesis. Jones, Rulin, Agena and Garcia will play Megan’s fellow reservists.
Shooting began Monday at Camp Minden near Shreveport, Louisiana.
