Christina Ricci signed onto the porn-tinged comedy “Born to Be a Star” for Sony Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story centers on a small-town nerd who stumbles upon a family secret: His quiet and demure parents were famous porn stars in the 1970s. This motivates him to leave Northern Iowa for Hollywood, hoping to follow in their footsteps and fulfill his destiny as the biggest adult-film star in the world.
Ricci, the female lead, is the guy’s innocent girlfriend. Adam Sandler co-wrote and is producing along with Jack Giarraputo, Allen Covert and Barry Bernardi.
Filming kicks off at the end of April.
